The Wasteland Car Cruise and car judging!
The most amazing collection of Wasteland cars you’ll find anywhere! Both on show and on the move.
If you’ve got a themed car you want part of the judging, bring it to the field behind main stage at 2pm. Cars that have previously won awards at previous Wasteland Weekends may be shown but are not eligible for awards.
3:30pm on Saturday begins the most epic car parade you’ve ever seen.
Bring your themed car to the entrance to the staging area entrance shown at the arrow at general parking in the map below. Staff will place your car or motorcycle in one of several groups and direct you to where to line up the field South of the twin hills. (This is a car parade, not a race, and speeds must be kept to 5 mph).
DEATH GUILD THUNDERDOME!
All attendees are welcome to join in at the free fire spinning area “HADES” (look for it on the MAP). Many types of fire spinning, practicing, instruction, and performance are allowed, but no mechanical fire devices. Full rules and hours will be posted on site and overseen by our fire performance safety team who are always in the area.
Open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday mornings, test your skills against your fellow Wastelanders. At the Eastern edge of the compound, near the Green Place ward. Find full info the Archery Range Facebook page:
THE FRIDAY FORMAL
Started in 2017, we bring a taste of the Wastelanders Ball to Wasteland Weekend! Friday night, at the main stage and the Atomic Cafe (and wherever else you want to wander), wear your most elegant/distressed wasteland attire. (Wasteland costume theme rules still apply, it’s just a chance for you to make them more “fancy”). Anyone may join and it is not a closed off event. Basically, it’s just a suggested costume theme for the evening, nothing else and no special requirements or tickets. Some of the tribe camps get into the spirit and throw Friday Formal events as well.
LAST CHANCE CASINO
Our very own Wasteland casino returns yet again. One of the most popular hangouts in Wasteland City. Bet your bottlecaps (only casino-issued LCC bottlecaps will be allowed) on the games of chance. Spend them on incredible (or incredibly ridiculous) prizes at the casino auctions.
THE WASTELAND FILM FESTIVAL
A showcase for the best new original post-apocalyptic shorts, plus other films to help you escape into the wasteland of the mind. All shown during the day, in an AIR-CONDITIONED tent! More info HERE and on Facebook.

Wasteland holds the world’s greatest post-apocalyptic costume competition. As always, we will have both an original and replica category. Replica costumes are anything from an existing movie, videogame, etc.
You are allowed to submit pictures to the judges (or just show them on your phone) if you are in the replica category and aren’t sure if we will know your character.
To enter, just be at the main stage a half hour BEFORE the competition begins (the judges want you gathered for PRE-JUDGING, so that awards can be handed out shortly after you all walk the stage).
POST-APOCALYPTIC SWIMSUIT CONTEST
Created and administered by the Disciples Of The Deez – It’s the end of the world’s greatest swimwear revue! In the shadow of the reclaimed wreck of the Exxon Valdez, Wastelanders design and display outfits that harken back to when the world had enough water to take for granted. (We hear if you get near the front rows, the Smokers might toss out some cigarettes, not to mention a generous splash of Aqua Cola.)
SMASHBOTZ! and the RC car Death Race!
Your favorite remote-controlled emissaries of mechanized mayhem will be back – Always bigger! With new and improved carnage!
Featuring a no-holds-barred demolition race of Mad Max-style RC cars and traditional battle robots.
Wasteland Workshops with Mark Cordory
Legendary post-apocalyptic belly dance ! The Hell’s Sirens production is organized by Saahirah Syn who offers a rotating cast each year featuring some of the most talented dancers in the world (or what remains of it). Hell’s Sirens trademark air raid sirens will sound at the beginning of their performances, so when you hear the sirens call head to the main stage!

AESTHETIC MEAT FRONT
For our momentous tenth year, AMF are returning after a 2 year absence to bring us another unforgettable ritual. (Midnight on Friday)
Aesthetic Meat Front – Body Under Attack (public ritual)
Statement from the artists:
“When the artist bleeds, it is not about pain, but catharsis and transcendence.
When the artist opens its flesh it is not about shock but evolution.
Why is it socially acceptable to destroy our body by feeding it poison, but decorating this temple with scars is not? We are all made of flesh and blood, thus we celebrate our body by exploring it.”
(Flesh Art Manifesto)
The attack of the body does not come from the artist
who opens its skin to become a living canvas.
The attack comes from those who see to take control over our bodies. The Autonomy over one’s own is one of the most basic human rights, but more and more this right is under attack. Instead of enlightenment the new century brought the rise of homophobia, anti choice fanatics, and a sexpanic censorship that erases the natural body from our digital collective unconscious.
The fear of anything natural is directly related with the destruction of our own habitat
The only way for us to survive as a species is to reconnect with our own nature.
Explore your body, transform your mind, send your flesh into oblivion!”
THE ANGELES OF RUIN
This collective of talented aerial artists have journeyed from the Reno-Tahoe radlands for their second Wasteland appearance. They’ll mesmerize you each and every night to the throbbing sounds coming from the heart of the city.
Look for them up on THE ROOST. Our aerial rig installation where our lithe and limber aerialists perch themselves to touch the sky.
Fire, drums, aerial acts, the veteran Wasteland performers from the Badlands bring it all!
RAVEN COLLECTIVE (you knew them last year as Inkllusionist).
Bringing sideshow mayhem to multiple stages!
Wasteland Tattoo Judging!
Our first ever tattoo contest! NO, we will NOT be giving or getting tattoos AT Wasteland (that’s a terrible idea for so many reasons) but we DO want to check out your post-apocalyptic and Wasteland-related tattoos! So if you’ve got one, come show it off at the Command Center at 1pm on Friday. If our expert judges like your ink, you could win a prize!
This epic fire performance group returns to the Wasteland. Previously, they’ve created amazing Fallout and Mad Max-themed performances. We can’t wait to see what they bring this year!
We have some incredibly talented solo artists coming to the Wasteland this year that you won’t want to miss! Such as…
Hailing from the east and settling into the west this lady is nothing short of dangerous, a burlesque performer, cosplayer, and costumer always ready to take you to the Danger Zone! She’ll be bringing her grinding act back to the main stage on Friday night.
THE PUPPETS OF THE APOCALYPSE
A lack of satellites sending shows means that in this new land of ours we return to old-school, analog forms of entertainment. The puppets help us ‘member! Watch them do their tell at the Wasteland side stages!
SUNDAY MORNING SERMON
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…
The sermon will take place on Sunday morning at a new location this year (to be announced) as we wait for a new Temple Of The Nuke to be constructed on our new homeland.
THE NUCLEAR BOMSHELLS
Returning from fabulous Lost Vegas and bringing burlesque, fire, and patriotic fervor. They once again have their own official side stage this year (the Bombshells Stage) where they will also be hosting other great acts, but they’ll also be doing sets at our main stage.
Some of our veteran tribes provide amazing atmosphere and entertainment as well. Such as…
WASTELAND GLADIATORS in the Battle Cage
Located near the Atomic Cafe and main stage. Check posted signs for fight times.
A truly post-apocalyptic burlesque troupe, the Molotov Mollies are no strangers to the Wasteland, having performed on our sands before with various other groups. Their world is fire… and burlesque!
BOUNTY HUNTING with the Rust Devils!
One of the most popular daytime activities in the Wasteland.
Hunt humans, make new friends, er… enemies, and win fortune and glory. What could be more wholesome?

This legendary tribe has been at every Wasteland Weekend. They’ll be playing a three-day tournament of the bloody, glorious, football-played-with-a-dogskull future sport known as JUGGER!
