Once again there will be Thunderdome fights for your entertainment. And this year they’re doing everything bigger and better. More fights! Fire and belly dancers in the dome! Flaming sword combat and more!
Last Chance Casino:
Our very own Wasteland casino returns, bigger and better. Bet your bottlecaps (only casino-issued bottlecaps will be allowed) on the games of chance. Turn them in for incredible (or incredibly ridiculous) prizes at the casino auction on Saturday night.
Remote control machines of destruction battle in the bullet proof cube of carnage. Like THIS.
Duel At Dusk Combat:
Hailing from the wastelands of Lost Vegas comes DADC. They have traveled and performed in the farthest corners of this great world. Their combat is dangerous, unexpected and never ordinary. Fire and steel are their weapons of choice, so when the sun goes down, just listen for the ringing of steel.
The Nuclear Bombshells
The Fabulous Lost Vegas Nuclear Bombshells Post-Apocalyptic Burlesque Revue and Variety Show is known wasteland-wide for being the performance troupe with the longest name in show business. Hailing from Fabulous Lost Vegas, the Nuclear Bombshells blend post-apocalyptic grit with old Vegas glamour. With their unique blend of satire and sexiness, the Bombshells prove that even cannibals can have class.
Coming to a campsite near you: a bizarre collection of characters, with a soft spot for clowns. But don’t let their jovial nature and good humor fool you; amidst the hoops, bells, and whistles are other, not-so-cute toys…
Venturing out from Las Vegas, NV, Sorex Circus has an odd mix of post-apocalyptic stage theatrics, Kevlar toys of various sizes, and an assortment of explosive lungs in their bag or tricks.
Just add fire.
Some of our favorite fire performers from 2011 are returning for more!
Death-defying knife throwing with the world-renowned Jack Dagger:
(Jack Dagger and Mr. Dark will also be creating the Circus At The End Of The World – more info on that soon!)
Post-apocalyptic bloodsport from the Juggers on both Friday and Saturday:
Sunday morning sermons by Brother Justify, the Wasteland Preacher. Each year, his radiation sickness gets worse, but his faith in the holy power of the atom grows stronger…
And in addition to staged entertainment, there are always a lot of activities happening, like the Wasteland Games, costume contests (aka The Wasteland Style Awards), Vehicle Cruise on nearby dirt roads (Saturday), Dagger & Dark’s Circus At The End Of The World, Tours of the Wasteland, and more!
