RACHEL, Nev. — Despite a lower than expected turnout and an ongoing legal battle, it appears Alienstock is preparing to return.

The event stemmed from a viral Facebook group called Storm Area 51, which encouraged members to go to the military site and "see them aliens." The group went viral and organizer Matty Roberts partnered with Connie West, owner of Little A'Le'Inn in Rachel, Nevada.

However during the planning process, the two split ways and West went on to create Alienstock. The event took place in Rachel near Area 51 but turnout was less than West hoped for.
Despite the ongoing issues, it appears the event is scheduled to happen again. The website announced Alienstock 2020 is scheduled to return Sept. 10-12.
