What could go wrong?

Maybe they can stop us all.

The viral “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop Us All” event that surged on Facebook, inviting people to meet up and attempt to “move faster than their bullets” to “see them aliens” has transformed into something slightly more feasible. Slightly.

Introducing Alienstock. From the minds that brought “Storm Area 51” to life, Alienstock is a make-shift music festival that aims to be a “meeting place for all the believers." As they note, “They can't stop us from gathering and celebrating Aliens!”

The event is currently slated for September 20 through September 22, the same date of the original plans to see them aliens, however no acts or vendors or really anything has been announced yet.

“Come out to the desert to dive into a world full of live music, arts, and camping under the stars,” organizers explain on their website. “We encourage attendees to bring all of their essential needs - and we ask that everyone remember to fill up those gas tanks! We'll have the critical infrastructure set in place, we can't wait to share this experience!”

The event is schedule to take place in Rachel, Nevada which has a population around 100 people. Unfortunately though, the town itself is already warning people against Alienstock, explaining on their website that there is no gas and no stores in Rachel, the Inn that they have is already booked for the weekend, cell and internet service is expected to be down, and credit cards are expected not to work. Other than that, it sounds promising.

“This event will undoubtedly attract crooks trying to capitalize on the chaos. Be on your guard and always lock your vehicle,” the town warns on their site. “Stay away from the residential part of Rachel. Most residents do not like where this event is going and will respond accordingly.”

“They threaten to ‘take over Rachel’ and claim that the residents are ‘on board.’ The residents were not asked and are not on board and will certainly not allow their town to be taken over. Law enforcement will be overwhelmed and local residents will step up to protect their property.”

If despite these warnings you still want to be a part of Alienstock, organizers are taking donations. You can find more about this potential festival here.
