“AlienStock” was cancelled due to “lack of infrastructure, poor planning, risk management and blatant disregard for the safety of 10,000+ … attendees.” Looks like no one will be seeing strange lights in the Nevada desert after all. The “AlienStock” music festival, which was being organized in conjunction with the viral “Storm Area 51” Facebook event, has been cancelled. “We are not interested in, nor will we tolerate any involvement in a FYREFEST 2.0,” reads a statement posted yesterday on the festival’s website, citing “lack of infrastructure, poor planning, risk management and blatant disregard for the safety of the expected 10,000+ AlienStock attendees.” The festival was being organized in part by Matty Roberts, the creator of the original joke Facebook page. It was set to take place Sept. 20-22 in the town of Rachel, Nevada. The small town with about 70 residents has just one business, a motel called Little A’Le’Inn.
