Join over a thousand fans coming from all over the the United States (and beyond) to gather in the Southern California desert for a four-day post-apocalyptic party. Set up camp at our wasteland compound, surrounded by specially-built sets. Costumes are required and post-apocalyptic campsites and vehicles are encouraged. Live for four days in a world pulled straight out of the Mad Max movies, beyond the grip of so-called civilization.

Top DJs and bands from all over will provide the soundtrack, fire dancers and bonfires will light up the night, and modified vehicles will shake the earth with their engines. Don’t miss it!
This is an ADULTS ONLY event.

Please see the website www.wastelandweekend.com for more information.

Hey, has anyone ever gone to this before or plan on going this year? I'd love to hear your story. If I go this year, which I'm thinkin I just may, it'll be my first time to this event. For those of you who have gone, any recommendations on what kind of gear/supplies should be packed other than the regular stuff and things? Thanks!

I deleted myself
at first I was stoked, then I read of the 100 dollar admission fee. and "costumes" are required? dogs are the only animal other than human allowed. ugh, read the FAQ.

was hoping this would be an event in celebration of and preparation for the coming collapse of civilization. the more I read into it, the more it seems like a fucking sci-fi convention.

100 bones... yeah, that's pretty steep. Still, I'm interested and would be curious to hear stories of the event if anyone has any to tell.

yeah, this is a cosplay event. i still think it would be rad. probably better than burning man, and i don't think 100 bucks is unreasonable.

Yea man! Screw Turding Man!
I'd be down - This does look seriously awesome!
but seriously... Who has 100$ to spare? Plus getting out there. Do they at least feed and water you for free? What about booze? Do they supply free booze?

Psh

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$0.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
