My hope is that this was the first annual as this particular outcome was fractured with multiple agendas and competing factions. The premise was the “storm the gates” but as most people showed up and realized this is really out in the middle of nowhere, and, with the potential of being thrown in jail with a large fine, the emotional compromise was to attend the music festival.
Live music at the 2019 Alienstock Festival.The music festival was poorly planned with no funding but kudos to the small handful of folks that scraped together something.
The net result is and was that with a single promoter showcasing a music festival with a counter-culture alien theme would be the perfect niche amongst the EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival), Coechella and Burning Man crowds and in some sense could be a great family outing.
The grounds just outside Alamo, Nevada and the Alien Research Center would be more logistically sound for gas, food and water and I suspect the folks at ARC could bring in renowned alien experts for symposiums, etc. Food trucks would also be willing to probably make the venture from Las Vegas and St. George as well.
I enjoyed myself but you could tell there was a mixed sense of being excited about the unknown event playout and reasonable expectations of what an event like this should be like.
