People warned to stay away from planned Area 51 festival

“Stay away”

An Extraterrestrial Highway sign is posted along state route 375 on July 22, 2019 in Rachel, Nevada

Residents of the closest town to Area 51 have issued a warning
to those hoping to attend a music festival that’s planned to be
held near the military base.

People who live in Rachel, a town in Nevada that’s
approximately 15 miles away from the top secret US Air Force
facility, wrote on their town’s official website that revellers
should “stay away”.

Alienstock – a “party in the desert” proposed to happen
Rachel between September 20 and 22  – is the brainchild of Matty
Roberts, the man behind
the cancelled Storm Area 51 Facebook event
. Two million people
signed up to raid Area 51 in July before the US Air Force shut down
the Facebook page.

Locals “do not like where this event is going and will respond
accordingly”, part of the statement reads on Rachel’s website
in reference to Alienstock.

According to
Sky News
, Roberts has paired up with event producer The Hidden
Sound to put on the festival to enable attendees to explore their
“unified curiosity” in the existence of extra-terrestrial
life.

Local authorities, however, have questioned claims by the
Alienstock organisers that it will have “headlining artists”
and will be an “amazing experience”.

Rachel residents added that the three-day gig will
“undoubtedly attract crooks trying to capitalise on the
chaos”.
