Party in Vegas
As an alternative to Storm Area 51 and Alienstock Festival, Roberts' team is now promoting a free Area 51 Celebration party at the Downtown Las Vegas Event Center on September 19, featuring EDM artists originally on the bill for AlienStock.
Although West had thrown her weight behind the festival, plenty of Rachel residents weren't so taken with the idea. In August, t the town's website warned that "The residents were not asked and are not on board and will certainly not allow their town to be taken over. This has a high potential of getting ugly. Please consider visiting at another time."
It seems an event of sorts may still go ahead, though it's unclear how many people will still turn up in Rachel the weekend of September 20.
