SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Aftershock Music Festival, which is set to take place in Sacramento this weekend, will not be impacted by the PG&E power outages, officials say. 

The festival said on its Facebook page on Tuesday that it is "not in the designated areas and we have our own power source."

The sold-out festival will be held at Discovery Park from Friday through Sunday. The event starts each day at noon and will end each night by 10 p.m.

The music festival, which expanded from two to three days this year, is expected to attract more than 30,000 attendees, with Slipknot, Blink-182 and Tool headlining the three-day festival. The Sacramento Police Department posted on Facebook that attendees should use alternative transportation methods to get to the festival. 

Using alternative methods of transportation will hopefully limit traffic congestion and delays in the Garden Highway and Richards Boulevard corridors, police say.

Parking in those areas will be extremely limited. 

Alternative methods of transportation include shuttle service that departs from Sleep Train Arena, regional transit bus and train service — which will be free for ticket holders — and parking areas will be available for reservation downtown.
