Aftershock: Deftones, very much at home in Sacramento

Headlining the first day of this year's Aftershock festival in Sacramento, California, and playing to a sold-out, capacity crowd (60,000 people for the weekend, this year), and in their home town, Deftones and their unique, alternative-metal sound returned to Aftershock for the first time since 2015, much to the delight of the fans, many of whom had waited at the barricades all day in the blazing sun.

Stunning light show, challenging to photograph, but beautiful to watch, fully complementing the music.
