At the beginning of the summer, a fictitious Facebook event took the internet by storm. The event called for its attendees to raid the Area 51 military base and uncover what secrets they keep. Millions of people responded to the event, and alien and Area 51 memes flooded the internet. 

After seeing such massive interest in everything alien-themed, organizers across the desert planned events around the fictitious raid. After detaching himself from a scheduled gathering, the creator of the farcical Facebook event that started it all teamed up with local promoter Collective Zoo and Bud Light for an interstellar celebration of aliens and internet culture, Alienstock 2019

The free show took place on September 19th at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center. Its lineup was "classified" so fans were in for a real surprise when artists like Astronomar, Born Dirty, and more took the stage. After the show, the promoters revealed that over 10,000 people were in attendance and shared a recap video.
