Elon Musk Opens Tesla’s Texas Gigafactory With EDM-Fueled “Cyber Rodeo” Event
No one knows how to throw a company party quite like Elon Musk.
An event called Cyber Rodeo marked the grand opening of Tesla's new Austin-based Gigafactory, a site which is expected to employ 10,000 people.
The factory, located in Travis Country, will play a key role in the future of the company. It will serve as the new corporate HQ for Tesla, and Musk himself expects the site will become the biggest cell factory in the world, according to the Austin American-Statesman.
A development of this significance needs an equally epic opening party, which is exactly what the company delivered. The livestreamed event, which saw Musk showered in neon lights as he took the stage, was precluded by a shimmering show of coordinated drone technology.
