Hey folks, you've probably seen me post this here before, but this event got deleted in the shuffle of moving back and forth between different event systems, so I'm re-posting it here so we can continue any discussion and hopefully get a few more folks to join us at this event.

[Sep 24-27, 2015] Wasteland Weekend (California City, CA)

Join over a thousand attendees coming from all over the the United States (and beyond) to gather in the Southern California desert for a four-day post-apocalyptic festival. 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 and other post-apocalyptic films and games, 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.
  • Live bands and top DJs from California, Nevada, Arizona and beyond
  • Combat and stunt performers
  • Fire dancers, wasteland burlesque, post-apocalyptic-style sideshow and circus acts and more
  • An armada of post-apocalyptic vehicles driven in from all over the country
  • Wasteland merchants vending their wares and services in “Bartertown”
  • Jugger – The post-apocalyptic bloodsport of the future
  • Vehicle cruises
  • Themed games, contests, and activities
The event will be held in a fenced-off area in the open desert. Security, portable toilets and sinks will be provided.

All details are subject to change without notice. Be sure to check back later on this site for more entertainment details:

so i'm trying to get an StP camp going there this year. so far it's looking like myself and my two brothers will be attending, and probably 2-4 friends of mine from Los Angeles. I'm probably going to fly in from Austin to LA and drive out to california city (about a 3 hour drive from LA).

@yellowbrickfreeway attended last year and reported back in this thread:

https://squattheplanet.com/threads/wasteland-weekend-2014.20862/

all the advance tickets (at cheaper prices) are sold out, but they won't sell out of the final price tickets which are $110 (I heard there's lots of free booze if that helps).

I'd love to go to this if I can, doing a fair bit of getting around in September, but if there is any way I can be there, I'm so going!

i'm considering renting a car or something, since i gotta be back to work afterwards, and there's a lot of stuff i want to check out, including a few short stops in LA, and there's a place were you can get a pair of keys to a pool in the middle of the desert, that's kinda a secret, and i want to see it.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    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
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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.
