    Forget panzy-ass Burning Man. Im going to WASTELAND! 🗯

    Mad Max meets Burning Man: Thousands of people in hand-crafted costumes gather for post-apocalypse festival 'beyond the grip of so-called civilization' in California's Mojave Desert


    Full article: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...d-Weekend.html


    -The Weekend Wasteland is an annual festival in California's Mojave Desert inspired by the film Mad Max

    -Started in 2010, it's known as being the largest post-apocalyptic festival in the world

    -In September, 4,000 attendees flocked to the event with their best hand-crafted warrior-like costumes and modified vehicles for the five-day festival that also resembles Burning Man



    Thousands of revelers flocked to California's Mojave Desert for the biggest post-apocalyptic festival in the world called Wasteland Weekend.

    The annual event, which is inspired by the Mad Max film series combined with dystopic fantasy books and video games, was created by Karol Bartoszynski, Jared Butler and James Howard in 2010.

    Sporting hand-crafted warrior costumes while driving customized and tricked out modified vehicles was a requirement for the event that was just hosted from September 26 to 30. Attendees also set up campsites to live 'beyond the grip of so-called civilization,' according to the event's website.

    There was even a 'battle cage' called the Death Guild Thunderdome where attendees faced off with each other using life-like weapons. They could also swing about while being suspended by elastic straps and hit one another with padded sticks.

    Each evening, festival goers gathered for bonfires and danced to the beat of live music being provided by a number of bands and top DJs from around the world.

    Below are a collection of awesome images showing the surreal scenes from the event this year.

    Burning Man has more to offer than wasteland. However, it doesn't matter which one you go to, all your going do is eat sand.

    I forgot about that. I made friends with a fabricator who built trophy trucks and 1000hp sand rails for a living, he would build something new for this event every year for he and his wife. He asked me to attend, but I told him I already experienced that growing up in Detroit.

    I’d do anything to break away from my monotony. I just need a break.
