Riff Magazine: Aftershock Day 4: Metallica, Rise Against, 6 more we loved Sunday
Aftershock Fest couldn’t contain Metallica to just one night. For the first time in the festival’s history, the Friday headliner returned on Sunday to close out the weekend with a second set. One thing was abundantly clear as the time drew near to the band’s 8 p.m. start time: Everyone was there for Metallica. While Aftershock headliners reliably draw a big crowd, it’s difficult to remember a past iteration of the festival with more people waiting for a band to show up. Sunday night’s Metallica crowd even looked to outpace its own Friday night crowd. simply put, the place was packed.
