Storm Area 51 Basecamp To Compete With Alienstock

Storm Area 51 Basecamp To Compete With Alienstock 5

We have known for some time that the original “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” event was a hoax conceived by comedian Matty Roberts. After receiving warnings from the Air Force and Area 51 ‘experts’, Roberts changed the name to Alienstock and has been promoting the event as a music festival and, despite the name, eliminating any storming to see “dem aliens.” That still prompted warnings and threats of government blockage by residents of Rachel where the festival is still scheduled to be held on September 20-21. Now, another group has stepped in to put the ‘alien’ back in Area 51. The Alien Research Center, located in Hiko just down the Extraterrestrial Highway from Rachel, announced the “Storm Area 51 Basecamp” on the same weekend, with a few similarities besides the date but an obvious agenda to attract those truly interested in Area 51, UFOs, aliens and the like.

“On Friday, Sept. 20 and Saturday, Sept. 21 the Alien Research Center on the Extraterrestrial Highway will be basecamp for believers as prominent ufologists, expert speakers, musicians and artists gather to celebrate the ‘Storm’ Area 51 movement.

Featuring live music, expert speakers, food trucks, Alien-inspired retailers and art installations, ‘Storm’ Area 51 Basecamp will also feature exclusive screenings and appearances by cast of Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell’s hit Netflix documentary Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers.”

The Storm Area 51 Basecamp website gives as much information as is available at the moment. The first big difference between it and Alienstock is the $51 (get it?) admission fee, which will be used for services, including security, emergency personnel, restroom facilities, water stations and wifi access. Alienstock is free (at the moment) and part of the resistance to it by locals is that it doesn’t have similar service and emergency plans. The Basecamp admission fee includes “parking, two bottles of water, a $10 food truck voucher and commemorative lanyard.” A limited number of tent and RV sites are available for additional fees. To guarantee publicity and cooperation with the locals, the press release notes that “Basecamp will serve as Lincoln County’s media hub for all journalists covering this growing cultural movement. The location will also serve as the command and control center for the Lincoln County’s Sheriff’s Office to ensure public safety.”

“Return regularly for updates to speaker roster.”

Here’s where Basecamp and Alienstock are similar – neither has revealed much in the way of speakers and entertainment. Alienstock has Budweiser and Arby’s trucks providing refreshments, a Vegas strippermobile providing – you can figure it out – and rumors of Lil Nas X and Limp Bizkit as possible performers with a promise of others in the electronic dance music arena. Basecamp has Corbell, documentary filmmaker and the curator of the Alien Research Center, Dick “The Rogue Warrior” Marcinko, a SEAL veteran, author and talk show host who will “share his story of a UFO sighting while conducting a covert mission,” a telescope viewing and a promise of “conversations with Ufologists.”
