Wasteland Weekend is described by its co-founders on its website as “a world straight out of the Mad Max movies and other post-apocalyptic films and games, beyond the grasp of so-called civilization”.

Thousands of people flocked from across the United States to attend the five-day festival.

Events taking place throughout the weekend include a burlesque show, a drinking relay race, a game called ‘Jugger Match’ based on the film ‘The Blood of Heroes’ and a ‘fight to the death under Thunderdome”, based on the Mad Max film trilogy.

Bands and DJs from all over the world also provide the soundtrack of the festival.

The festival also has its own cinema, which hosts a Wasteland Film Festival.

According to the festival’s website, costumes are required for the weekend.

Mad Max’s first fan event, Roadwar USA, took place in 2004.

Various events took place in the years that followed.

In 2009, the first fully immersive weekend event called Road Warrior Weekend was held.

Then, in 2010, Karol Bartoszynski, Jared Butler and James Howard brought the first official Wasteland Weekend to life.
