Iron Maiden Confirmed for Aftershock 2024

- By Ramon Gonzales

The legends will join Pantera as the first two bands cemented for the annual fall festival in Sacramento.

Less than a month removed from the 2023 edition of the annual rock and metal pilgrimage, Aftershock has confirmed that NWOBH icons Iron Maiden will be among the headlining artists slated for the 2024 installment. 

The announcement means that Maiden will join the reformed Pantera who was forced to push their 2023 appearance to the following year for reasons still yet undisclosed. 

While the dust is still settling at Discovery Park, Aftershock has given fans plenty of reason to run it back with a massive one-two and one hell incentive to save the date. 

The festival shared in a prepared statement, "Get ready to raise hell because we're here to announce that none other than the legendary and downright earth-shaking…Iron Maiden is headlining our party.

This isn't just a performance; it's an eruption of pure, unadulterated metal power that will leave you begging for more. Aftershock 2024 is where legends live, and you won't want to miss a second of it. Stay tuned for more artist announcements and everything else because we’re about to create a 4-day rock and metal masterpiece."

Aftershock is slated for October 10th through October 13th. Weekend passes and VIP upgrades are now available - HERE
