Man behind 'Storm Area 51' sets up alien-themed festival

The man behind the 'Storm Area 51' Facebook event is setting up an alien-themed festival.

The event's creator Matty Roberts gained worldwide attention after two million people signed up to allegedly raid the top secret military base in Nevada - which many conspiracy theorists believe holds extra terrestrial life and technology - on September 20.

However, after receiving a warning from the US air force about the campaign, the organiser has now teamed up with event producer The Hidden Sound to put on music festival - dubbed Alienstock - in the nearby town of Rachel next month.

The website says: "We're aiming to establish something unique here, a meeting place for all believers. Come out to the desert to dive into a world full of live music, arts, and camping under the stars."
