For two days, Sacramento was rocking out at the Monster Energy Aftershock Festival.

The event drew a crowd of roughly 32,000 over the weekend. Roughly 160 security guards maintained the crowds.

“The crowd control had been fantastic. We haven’t had one person taken away by the police today,” said promoter Mike Yokan.

Between food vendors and clean up crews, the event helped Sacramento rake in an estimated $2 million.

As band players walked across the crowd in a giant bubble, teens and adults made their way through mosh pits.

“It is awesome! I hope they do it again next year,” said event goer Billy Grigsby.

Many came out to hear headliners like Avenged Sevenfold and Korn.

14 people were taken to the hospital for minor injuries.

Aftershock organizers say that the festival will be back next year.
