Last month, the Internet went in full meltdown mode when it was announced that a big event was planned to infiltrate Area 51, the top-secret military installation long-rumored to hold alien secrets. Days later, it morphed into an alien-themed festival, Alienstock, hosted by the small town of Rachel, Nevada to celebrate and congregate around all things alien and alien conspiracy. Now, the festival organizers are at odds on what is really going to happen this weekend with two million Facebook fans pledged to invade this remote locale and many logistics still not yet announced.

Will the event be more like Woodstock or the Fyre Festival? Time will tell.

And YOU will get a front row seat! We’re packing up and hitting the road with The UFO Bros to capture the day for an all-new special, Storming Area 51 that will air September 29. The UFO Bros, Joe and Emmett Hayes, will pack up their RV and road trip from Northern California to Nevada to take a hard look at the history, mystery and wonder of Area 51, meet all the colorful characters and various experts on UFOs and immerse themselves in quirky alien experiences as they roll into the dusty destination, just two hours outside of Las Vegas.

But before the special airs, don't miss the on-the-ground, live digital coverage from the Rachel, Nevada event on Travel Channel's Facebook page hosted by veteran of live paranormal experiences James McDaniel. A series of Facebook Lives will take fans right in to the center of the action as fans will be able to watch the event throughout the day on Sept. 20.

Storming Area 51 premieres Sunday, Sept. 29 at 10|9c. Follow The UFO Bros on Instagram and James McDaniel on Twitter and Instagram for live updates. Join the conversation by using the hashtag #StormingArea51.
