If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to party with Elon Musk, wonder no more. Tonight, Musk is throwing a launch party for Tesla’s battery-making Gigafactory in Nevada, and you'll be able to join in — albeit via livestream.

To be there in person, you would have to be a Tesla owner who referred five other buyers or just be a very important person of some sort. So for those who don’t qualify, you’ll just have to mosey on over to to be a part of the celebration.

The Gigafactory will be the new home of Tesla’s battery production, and when it’s up and running, it’s expected to furnish batteries for more than one million Model 3 cars per year. Given that close to 400,000 people have reserved a Model 3 at last count, Tesla is going to need it.
