Storm Region 51 may possibly have began out as an innocent joke when Matty Roberts designed the Facebook group, but he now intends on realizing his pipe dreams of a Storm Region 51 festival by capitalizing on its virality in one particular gutsy—and possibly brainless—move. In a matter of months, Storm Region 51 has went from a meme to an actual music festival dubbed Alienstock.

On the other hand, the residents of Rachel, Nevada are significantly less than delighted about the news. With a population totaling significantly less than 100, the town of Rachel has currently warned possible attendees against generating the trek to Alienstock’s destination—both cautioning against the town’s harsh atmosphere circumstances and generating it clear that its residents will not be afraid to safeguard themselves and their home.
Rachel’s internet site states, “There is no gas and no shop. The Inn is booked for that weekend. If you strategy on attending the occasion you need to be skilled in camping, hiking and surviving in a harsh desert atmosphere and have a automobile in fantastic shape. You need to be ready to be fully on your personal for meals, water, gas and so on.”
“WARNING: A dubious group claiming a connection to chaotic events like Burning Man and the Las Vegas Electric Music Festival has taken more than this occasion. They threaten to ‘take more than Rachel’ and claim that the residents are ‘on board,” the town’s internet site notes. “The residents were not asked and are not on board and will certainly not allow their town to be taken more than. Law enforcement will be overwhelmed and regional residents will step up to safeguard their home.”
