Wasteland, Another Roadside Attraction
For Mike Orr, a.k.a. “Sweet Lips,” escapism comes in the form of Wasteland Weekend: an annual four-day post-apocalyptic festival held in the Southern California desert that attracts thousands of people from around the country. It’s basically a giant celebration of end-of-the-world culture, where, per Sweet Lips, “people can do whatever they want.” This includes everything from hand-to-hand combat to burlesque to bonfires that set the night sky ablaze.
But most of all, people come to Wasteland for the cars — DIY war machines that look as though they’ve rolled right out of Fury Road.
Take a trip to another world where anything goes, from wild hedonistic parties to post-apocalyptic Camaro’s pimped out with a harpoon and a modified machine gun.
Once you take a look at this festival you’ll be stinging to have your own end-of-the-world mecha party.
