Residents aren't too enthused about this according to their website. Aliens might not be the most interesting part of this story.
"This event will undoubtedly attract crooks trying to capitalize on the chaos. Be on your guard and always lock your vehicle. And stay away from the residential part of Rachel. Most residents do not like where this event is going and will respond accordingly.
WARNING: A dubious group claiming a connection to chaotic events like Burning Man and the Las Vegas Electric Music Festival has taken over this event. They threaten to "take over Rachel" and claim that the residents are "on board". The residents were not asked and are not on board and will certainly not allow their town to be taken over. Law enforcement will be overwhelmed and local residents will step up to protect their property. This is not a good time to visit and experience Rachel."
LEAVE NO TRACE
We love this aspect of Burning-Man, so we're going to honor their efforts by extending this movement. We want to respect the Earth and residents of Rachel, NV. So please help us in our efforts to leave this place cleaner than we found it! We believe this needs to be implemented more in festival-culture. Feel free to stay on the 23rd and help us collect all the leftover trash!

Those involved have already given permission,
If some have given permission seeing the tourist $ benefit - how would that constitute "forcing themselves"
I wonder if they'll open their gas station up...
If any weapons are found during inspection, you will be forced to turn-around and leave.
Due to the lack of infrastructure, poor planning, risk management and blatant disregard for the safety of the expected 10,000+ AlienStock attendees, we decided to pull the plug on the festival. The permit holder (Connie West) was given multiple opportunities to provide us with the proof that things expected at this festival were in place. In fact, she refused to provide to us, as agreed upon, contracts, proof of deposits or any paper proof of anything.
We are officially disconnecting from Connie West, Rachel NV and AlienStock's affiliation with them. We will no longer offer our logo, social media, website or Matty Roberts likeness or scheduled appearance. In short, the relationship has ended permanently, and AlienStock will be moving to a safe, clean secure area in Downtown Las Vegas as an alternative.
Downtown Las Vegas is the place to be on September 19th, 2019! Music starts at 8PM with doors opening at 7PM. You can expect EDM artists and some unique art being displayed for an 'out of this world' gathering!
