Wasteland: Mad Max Like Festival Makes Burning Man Look Like a Picnic

wasteland-1

If you ever thought that pockets of the world have been gearing towards an apocalypse by having weird parties in the desert, then you’d be 100% right.  Events like Burning Man have shown us that people not only like to get weird, primordial, and flat out barbaric, but that it’s becoming an embraced culture.  But no more so is this ideal shared than with a festival that puts any desert gathering to shame.  That festival is known as Wasteland.

Chaos is the norm at Wasteland, the “world’s largest post-apocalyptic festival” that turns the Mojave Desert into a glorious vision of hell on earth. For four days each September, thousands of survivors maraud a patch of dirt and sand east of Bakersfield, California, in wild jalopies and wage epic bungee-battles in a two-story Thunderdome.

Basically this makes Burning Man look like a fun gathering of daisies.   Can you even imagine pitting the crowds of these two festivals against one another?  All I can say is, “two men enter, one man leaves.”  These are some of the toughest looking people I’ve ever seen.   Check out more photos below:
