The community members of Elverta, population less than 6,000, are bracing for the sounds of Slip Knot and Marilyn Manson.

About 50,000 people are expected to attend the 2015 Monster Energy Aftershock heavy metal and rock Music Festival hosted this year at Gibson Ranch.

Event coordinators say there will be ample parking. Unlike the City of Trees Event at Gibson Ranch in August of 2015, Aftershock concert attendees will park off site, in a 200 acre lot next door.

"The plan is to get people in here safely from the parking area next door. Let them enjoy the music. And, go home safely," Gibson Ranch General Manager Doug Ose told FOX40 Friday, adding that the event could generate $40,000-$90,000 for Gibson Ranch.

Gibson Ranch is operated by Ose and owned by Sacramento County. Ose says Aftershock 2015 is the largest single event at Gibson Ranch in recent memory.

About 22 CHP officers are assigned to work the event, along with 300 private security guards and a handful of Sacramento County Sheriff Deputies.
