Real Area 51 raiders would know but for those who are not taking the raid seriously, there is a valid reason to change that. Just days after Facebook decided to take the event down for safety reasons, founders of the Storm Area 51 event page have transformed their far fetched idea into a real deal music festival that has been titled Alienstock.
Alienstock will take place September 20th through the 22nd in Rachel, Nevada. What makes this event so special is that it is totally free for the public. This music festival will be a camping festival out in the Nevada desert. The only thing this first-ever festival is asking for are donations to help cover the costs of food, water, security, staff, production, emergency services, and everything else essential for a successful festival. The official lineup for Alienstock has not been announced, however, the website promises “huge names” that can not be announced at the time of writing due to radius clauses.
Rachel, Nevada is an extremely small town roughly two hours outside of Las Vegas. Rachel is home to just about 50 people which makes it not ideal for a great music festival location. Only time will tell though if Alienstock becomes the next big festival in the U.S.
