The Big Picture: Aftershock 2022 Thursday

The 2022 version of the Aftershock heavy metal music festival kicked off at Discovery Park yesterday, and despite the early Fall blast of Summer heat, attendees were in good spirits and everyone was ready to rock.

Slipknot, Stone Temple Pilots, Evanescence, and Rob Zombie were among the headliners for Thursday, but they were just three of the 23 bands who played on four stages constructed around Discovery Park.

The fun begins again today, Friday the 7th with headliners KISS, and continues through Sunday.
