DEAD BY WEDNESDAY
Playing Main Stage Friday, September 30th.
AL1CE blends elements of electronic, dark wave, and progressive rock (think Daft Punk, the Cure, and Pink Floyd), with surrealistic and fantastic imagery, to create a dreamy, intimate, dark yet cathartic experience for fans. Inspired by Alice in Wonderland’s concept of embarking on a journey “through the looking glass”, AL1CE’s music explores universal themes of the sacred feminine and masculine, yin and yang, challenges and transcendence… the Unity of Opposites.
Check out their music video “FOR DEAD”
Electrifying neo alternative rock artist Élishia Sharie effortlessly synthesizes elements of 80s classic rock with 90s grunge to create an aggressive, cross-generational sound that she contrasts with an unapologetically gritty, soulful vocal.
DEAD ANIMAL ASSEMBLY PLANT
Welcome to the Sweetmeats Slaughterhouse – home of Dead Animal Assembly Plant. This horrorshow car crash wrapped in an atom bomb – the butchers are here to thrill (or kill) ya with their industrial metal noise and bombastic frenetic stage show. So come in and sit a spell – in the end we’re all a little dead here.
Coming to play for a record TENTH year at Wasteland Weekend (a record that may never be broken) AHTCK will be closing out our Friday night on September 30th with a special extended set!
Assaulting our main stage once again – bringing that industrial energy to the Wasteland.

The ultimate threesome: 2022 AltStar Hall of Fame winner, Masuimi Max and her Chaos Rites fire troupe bring sexy thrills and danger like you’ve never seen before! The perfect trifecta of wild, wicked women, coming to our main stage on multiple nights!
Her real name is Max, and, yes, she’s probably mad! Masuimi is a hellraising fetish icon who eats fire for breakfast. Some like it hot, but Masuimi likes it hotter.
Don’t let the name fool you, Saint Anique came to raise hell. Hailing all the way from Sin City, this fire spitting, metal grinding, glass walking, hardcore burlesque babe wreaks havoc wherever they go.
A fire wielding priestess. Havoc causing yet compassionate towards animals and children. A karmic judiciary. Can use any weapon when appropriate but prefers old magic.

The RaVen Collective THE DANGER SHOW Possibly funny, sometimes sexy, always DANGEROUS ! Sideshow? Kinda. Comedy? Not exactly. Burlesque? Maybe. It’s knife throwing and entertainment like you have ever seen. The knives of The Spectre fly almost as fast as the quips from the motormouth madman of impalement perfection… as the always sexy Lady Violet attempts to keep the show on the rails. Coming all the way from NYC to bring you a show you have to see to believe. PUTTING THE FUN BACK IN FUNERAL
We’re excited that Wasteland veterans The RaVen Collective will be bringing their popular sideshow-style extravaganza back to our stage for 2022!
