Do you remember how I explained Thirty Seconds to Mars has an island? And that they “jokingly” call the gatherings there a cult? Well, pack your bags and empty your bank accounts, because the next meeting of the Not-A-Cult-Cult-That-Is-Thirty-Seconds-to-Mars Fans starts next week.
Beginning on September 7 and continuing until the 9th, Thirty Seconds to Mars is celebrating the 10 year anniversary of their album “This Is War” with a three-day party in Santa Monica.
Camp Mars is a two night, all-inclusive festival experience. Relax and restore with hiking in the Santa Monica Mountains, take a dip in the pool, enjoy outdoor activities like archery and rock climbing, and catch two intimate performances with Thirty Seconds To Mars.
Celebrate the 10 year anniversary of This Is War as Thirty Seconds To Mars performs the entire album live (at least as much as they can remember).
Rates start at $999 for two nights of camping where you provide your own tent and they give you a 9’ by 9’ plot to put it on. Dorm-style cabins can be had for $1,299 (Night of the Hunter Cabin) or $1,699 (Alibi Cabin). A shared room at Hurricane Lodge is $2,599 and you get “priority entry to Church of Mars concerts”. (Remember, the cult thing is supposedly A JOKE.)
For only $6,499 you can get the VIP experience that includes alone time with Jared Leto, priority entry to the weird Church thing, priority seating for any “band activities,” and air conditioning. Like, wow.
Those of you not fully committed to sparkle motion can get tickets to Saturday or Sunday only for $349 or just the two Church of Mars concerts for $75 each. None of the packages appeared to have the white robes included and it did not specify whether Leto would force you to wash his feet or kiss his ass.
Now, if you cannot make it to the celebration, you will be most pleased to know that you can buy special merch. Where? I don’t know, but here is Leto wearing a new shirt and… a bath towel around his ass?
Jesus Leto commands you to find the merch on your own by ascending to a higher plane of consumerism, my friends. Tickets still available for camp too.
