Safety Concerns?

The safety of our fans, artists, staff and all others at the festival is of the utmost importance to us. In light of recent tragic events, we are re-evaluating our security procedures for Aftershock 2017 in conjunction with our private security providers and local law enforcement.

There will be elevated security for the event. Law enforcement recommends that we do not publicly comment on the specifics of our security measures; however, here are a few key things to know as you prepare for this year’s Aftershock, along with a few tips on what to do in an emergency situation to help protect your own safety.

All festival patrons will be required to enter through security checkpoints and will be screened with metal detectors and/or pat-downs. Arrive early as there could be longer than usual wait times to enter the venue. Re-entry will not be allowed.

Please carefully read our list of prohibited items below. This list will be strictly enforced. In particular, we have strict limits on the size and type of bags that may be brought into the event, similar to other major events. The bag policy can also be viewed below. All permitted bags will be searched. There will be no storage for prohibited items, including prohibited bags. This is especially important for those of you taking the Aftershock Park & Ride Shuttle, taxis, UBER/Lyft, or are being dropped off/picked up. We encourage you to not to bring a bag of any sort, but if you must, it has fit within our strict guidelines.

Be aware of your surroundings. Familiarize yourself with the layout of the festival, including the exits. “If you see something, say something.” Public safety is everyone’s responsibility. If you encounter any suspicious activity, report it to a nearby staff member.

Last but not least, be prepared to follow instructions given by festival officials. If asked to evacuate due to severe weather or other unforeseen circumstances, remain calm, be patient, and follow instructions.

Our goal is always to keep the show going, but everyone’s safety comes first.

Thank you. We look forward to a safe and fun Aftershock 2017!
