Local News

PIOCHE, Nev. — Lincoln County Commissioners are expected to consider whether to allow organizers to go forward with an event that grew out of a hoax social media posting encouraging people to storm Area 51, a top secret military installation.

“Alienstock” which is a festival planned to take place in Rachel, Nevada is supposed to happen Sept. 20 – 22 and could bring as many as 40,000 visitors to a remote desert location.

Lincoln County commissioners are expected to vote on a permit for the event.
