The high hopes we all had to turn the Storm Area 51 event into a successful music festival have fallen. “Alienstock” will now be a one-day event at the Las Vegas Events Center. With that being said, there are still a few hundred people daring to show up at the actual Area 51 site and try to make some noise.
In anticipation, future Las Vegas entertainment complex, AREA15, has announced that they will be live-streaming the event. The plan to live stream the event has been in motion since July. However, the entertainment business has just doubled down after news that there would be no “official” event being held.
“Everyone that signed up for the Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us event may have called it quits. Not us!
We found a small – but determined – group who are still going to make a (Naruto) run for it to set the aliens free… and we’re going in with them. Well, our camera guy is at least.
Tune in tomorrow to see what happens.”
All of this may seem like a meme to millions of people online. That is not the case for the US government. The government is taking it very seriously, with good reasoning, of course. Area 51 is on the site of an active military base in Nevada, Nellis Air Force Base Complex. This means it is government property. Meaning if you try and trespass, you’ll be detained or, worse, shot.
“The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets,” the Defense Department said in a released statement over the weekend.
So, if you are not curious enough to travel to Area 51 but still curious to see what might happen, this is your best bet.
