Wasteland Weekend is a 5-day post-apocalyptic party in the Mojave desert in the California wastelands.

Costumes are required and you must be at least 18 years old at the time of the event to attend.

All tickets allow entry (with ins and outs) for all five days. We do not sell single day tickets. There are NO additional fees for parking, RVs or camping.

We will have an attendance cap in place for this year, and we do expect tickets to sell out prior to the event as it has in previous years.

Please note: TICKETS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AT THE GATE regardless of whether or not the event sells out.

LOCATION: The event will be in the same location as last year, our permanent home in the desert, outside California City (technically in Edwards, CA). The street address for the location may not show up properly in all maps apps, so it’s best to consult the “MAPS” page at https://www.wastelandweekend.com/maps .
