Festivities planned for Sept. 20-21, 2019 at the Storm Area 51 Basecamp were born of a cultural movement to bring greater transparency around what many believe to be decades of government secrecy surrounding UFO technology.

A meme along with a Facebook event created by a kid who saw Bob Lazar and Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell on Joe Rogan’s podcast determined the date. But, it was Corbell’s Netflix documentary Bob Lazar : Area 51 & Flying Saucers that reignited the movement. That movement began in 1989 when Bob Lazar came forward on the news with Las Vegas investigative reporter – George Knapp. Lazar disclosed his account of attempting to reverse-engineer alien spacecraft for the United States military. Lazar’s whistleblowing is what made Area 51 a household name and it’s the reason the secret base has become associated with UFOs.

Today, ‘Storm’ Area 51 has become a powerful cultural movement driven by the digital-savvy youth in America, and it is mobilizing people of all ages around the world to demand UFO transparency.

Artists, musicians and filmmakers are collaborating to shape the desert experience this September, coordinating with local businesses and establishing authorized locations for people to come together, not to ‘Storm’ Area 51 but, instead, to have a moment of music, presentations and celebration. There will be no misguided ‘storming’ of an active military installation that defends our national security; rather, the goal is to provide a microphone for the movement while offering a safe, organized platform for education and awareness for both believers and the uninitiated to gather and learn more.

The movement is gathering mainstream momentum and many believe this is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for the global public to learn more about the truth behind the UFO secrecy.
