Postapocalyptic Partiers Get Dirty in the Desert at Wasteland Weekend 2016

Postapocalyptic Partiers Get Dirty in the Desert at Wasteland Weekend 2016

After enduring entry lines of more than five hours — Wasteland Weekend's stand-in for the misery of a nuclear bomb blast — survivors did battle in Thunderdome and Jugger matches, roared around in car parades, danced the dust and partied like it was the fake end of the world. It was "the world's largest postapocalyptic gathering," an event straight out of Mad Max, held Sept. 22-25 in the SoCal desert. All photos by L.J. Williamson.
