About the Mad Max Festival called Wasteland Weekend (earlier times Roadwarrior Weekend) I had blogged five years ago schonmal. Here where a bunch of confusion as figures from the Mad Max universe dress a nice short documentary about the Wasteland Weekend and do nonsense with flamethrowers and converted cars.
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.
Who likes can still watch the highlights of the past year:
