The Internet joke that went viral has spurred two rural Nevada counties to draft an emergency declaration, with local law enforcement planning to team resources with the state and neighboring counties ahead of Sept. 20-22 events.
Roberts visited the town of Rachel over the weekend and told FOX5 at the time that the Facebook event he created never was expected to snowball into something this big. At the time, he said he was still looking to be involved in the Alienstock event.
“I’ve never been more stressed in my life, but I’ve also never been this happy,” he told FOX5 on Sunday. “It’s insane, but it’s exciting.”
“We are not interested in, nor will we tolerate any involvement in a FYREFEST 2.0,” the statement continued. “We foresee a possible humanitarian disaster in the works, and we can’t participate in any capacity at this point.”
The town of Rachel posted on its website Monday that the “Alienstock event in Rachel just became Fyre Fest 2.0 as we had predicted.”
“The creator of the Storm Area 51 movement pulled out because he feels the event is not safe and lacks organization. With a week and a half to go no preparations have been made and no bands have been signed,” the town’s website states. “If any event still happens it is going to be a pretty sad affair with no bands, very little infrastructure and a lot of unhappy campers.”
The inn owner said that organizers have already supplied a down payment for security, medical services, water, entertainment and clean-up services. She said that 20 bands and two comedians are scheduled, and her plans for the festival more than 100 miles north of Las Vegas are still on.
“I’m going to do it on my scale,” West said. “I’m going to do it the way I know how and what I’ve been planning for because I know no other way to do it. But it’s still happening.”
As for Roberts, he said he is now taking Alienstock to downtown Las Vegas the same weekend where it will be in a “safe, clean secure area.”
