The small town of Rachel, Nevada, located in the middle of the desert and home to only about 50 people, could be flooded with thousands of people this coming weekend after the joke Facebook post to storm Area 51 – the top-secret military base that conspiracy theorists believe houses aliens – went viral.

“AlienStock,” one of three festivals that emerged from the joke-calls to raid Area 51, is slated to take place at the aptly named Little A’Le’Inn in Rachel.

Despite the potential crowds, a co-owner of the inn, Connie West, said she wanted to quash any comparisons to the infamous Fyre Festival.

“There’s going to be a Medevac helicopter. There’s going to be ambulances. I have 130 Porta-Johns coming,” West said, adding that law enforcement and a security team also will be on hand.
