He handed over occasion manufacturing and planning duties to others, as he has no expertise throwing occasions of any measurement, and people people, together with Connie West, a resident of Rachel, NV, apparently didn’t meet their obligations.
Matty Roberts is now partnering with Downtown Las Vegas Occasions Middle for Space 51 Celebration on Sept. 19, in keeping with occasion planner Frank DiMaggio.

Learn Roberts’ full assertion beneath.
Because of the lack of infrastructure, poor planning, threat administration and blatant disregard for the security of the anticipated 10,000+ AlienStock attendees, we determined to tug the plug on the competition. The allow holder (Connie West) was given a number of alternatives to offer us with the proof that issues anticipated at this competition have been in place. Actually, she refused to offer to us, as agreed upon, contracts, proof of deposits or any paper proof of something.
We’re formally disconnecting from Connie West, Rachel NV and AlienStocks affiliation with them. We are going to not supply our brand, social media, web site or Matty Roberts likeness or scheduled look. In brief, the connection has ended completely, and AlienStock might be shifting to a protected, clear safe space in Downtown Las Vegas as a substitute.
We aren’t taken with, nor will we tolerate any involvement in a FYREFEST 2.zero. We foresee a potential humanitarian catastrophe within the works, and we will’t take part in any capability at this level.
AlienStock is a model that stands for unity and concern for like minded folks. It’s grown into way more than a location. It’s a phenomenon that may solely promise absolute security and peace, and we have to transfer the Competition to ensure that. Keep tuned for extra information… it’s BIG!
