Eine Facebook-Gruppe ruft zum Sturm der US-Militärbasis „Area 51“ auf. Ein paar UFO-Fans versuchen es tatsächlich. Eine Jähre Frau ist beim Area Event über die Grenzen der Tore marschiert und hat somit die Sperrzone betreten. Dabei wollten sie nur die Aliens sehen – jetzt drohen ihnen bis zu sechs Monate Haft.

But they were just concerned for my safety and the safety of others. They were doing their due diligence so I can't be mad about it.
As a result of the wild popularity of the event and worldwide headlines, two official events were spawned.
The first — Storm Area 51 Basecamp — sells itself as a "basecamp for believers as prominent ufologists, expert speakers, musicians and artists gather to celebrate the 'Storm' Area 51 movement.
Crucially, the event's information page states:. The second was created with the help of Mr Roberts himself and is appropriately named Alienstock.
Alienstock had more of the tone you would have expected from an event spun out of a Facebook joke. Originally billed as a music festival, it was due to be hosted at the Little A'Le'Inn , which is the closest hotel and only business open to the public for a 60km stretch of road near Area 51 known as the "Extraterrestrial Highway" in a town called Rachel.
But last week, the relationship between Mr Roberts and the owners of the Little A'Le'Inn broke down over the costs of hosting the festival.
On the Alienstock website , Roberts wrote:. He compared the plans in Rachel to a potential Fyre Festival 2. We reached out to Little A'Le'Inn for comment, but found the phone line busy on three separate attempts.
Mr Roberts' "safer alternative" is happening more than a two-hour drive from Area 51 in downtown Las Vegas. And like we mentioned, it even has a brand deal by way of a specially-created Bud Light beer can for the event.
He expects a capacity crowd. Meanwhile, the official website for the town of Rachel , Nevada echoed those comparisons to the doomed Fyre Festival for the original event closer to Area The reader is free to investigate further and come to their own conclusions.
It was heavy on souvenir sellers, though there were some hardcore ufologists. If anything, the ufologists were more the exception than the rule. I had expected most Area 51 Stormers to be conspiracy theorists, 4chan types, or people on the fringe political spectrum, but a lot — probably most — were normies on a lark, or foreigners in search of peak Americana.
The aliens, it seemed, were classical music buffs. Rachel came into view — a tiny, one-horse town besieged by cars and tents and camper vans.
Contrary to the wild warnings about a Fyre festival 2. Festival marshals waved me along to an assigned lot. My neighbors at the parking lot-slash-campsite were a punk band called Foreign Life Form.
They were trying to find the concert organizer to get added to the billing. Getting to the actual entrance to Area 51 took another 20 minutes of driving on an unmarked, unpaved road.
Clouds of chalk billowed behind the cars coming and going. At the end of the road was a drab military checkpoint flanked by concertina wire and threatening signs.
The sign prohibiting photography was clearly a dead letter. They seemed relaxed, though, and looked like they were having as good a time as the ostensible Stormers.
After all, this was an excuse for them to hang out at Area 51, too. To my knowledge, no one actually raided Area 51, besides the two Dutch YouTubers who had tried to sneak through the perimeter two weeks earlier and ended up in jail instead.
In addition to YouTube vloggers and Instagram influencers, there were more than a few actual journalists. Watching them scurry around diligently with tape recorders reminded me that I needed to find a Quirky Character who could give On-Scene Color.
A talkative UFO buff would be ideal but the other journalists had already claimed most of the good ones. The vloggers loved them, and the Pepes enjoyed mugging for the cameras.
Under their frog heads, the Pepes were two young Latino guys from California. The other nodded in recognition but claimed he just thought the symbol was fun.
Tendrils of fog hung over Alienstock. The temperature was dropping fast and the sun was low and pink in the sky. US election latest: Trump says he'll intervene in Texas case — 'the big one' — but experts say it's 'laughable'.
