Grand Rapids' Upheaval Festival Adds Official Aftershows at The Intersection in 2022

Now when you don't want the fun to end Friday and Saturday night, it doesn't have to! July 15 and 16, after rocking with the awesome lineup at Belknap Park (more on that below), head to The Intersection to keep the party going!

Spiritbox, Fire From the Gods, and Sleepwalker will play the official Upheaval Aftershow at The Intersection Friday, July 15.

Spirit box is definitely an up and coming band to watch. Loudwire named their album "Eternal Blue" the 2021 Album of the Year, and Shinedown's Brent Smith and Korn's Brian "Head" Welch have both recently shared high praise for Spiritbox.

John 5 will rock the official Upheaval Aftershow at the Intersection Saturday, July 16. Stay tuned for more bands to be added!

A Michigan native, the legendary guitarist has shared the stage with Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, and Rob Halford. John 5 has also worked with artists in all genres including KD Lang, Rod Stewart, Dave Lee Roth, Alice Cooper, Steven Adler, Lynryd Skynrd, Meatloaf, Ricky Martin, Rod Stewart, and Motley Crue.

A separate ticket will be needed for the Aftershows, and they go on sale this Friday, March 11, at 10a.m.
