Leaving only our footprints

Nowhere 2014


Everything's returned to dust again (thanks to our amazing Strike crew). And we're gearing up for 2015. If you want to be involved be sure to stay posted on Facebook or via our No News newsletter.

What a ridiculous rollercoaster ride it was...

  • 300 odd Nobodies helped build and take down the Nowhere we all loved 
  • 1200 odd Nobodies roamed the dusty streets of our new site. Tell us more in the Census.
  • We remembered old friends and made new friends from all around the world - plus new friends in the area
  • We talked love, compassion, the future of Nowhere, Leave No Trace, and - as always - toilets
  • We worked up a sweat and danced the night away
  • and oh, the Temple...
 

We played the giant drum, jumped Wild Encounter's trampolines, massaged those tired muscles away at Shhh!, danced to bass and flames at Ubertown, had late night giggles at Gate, hugs at Greeters, more hugs at the Hug and the Snug, fluffy time at Babycham, wizard love at Orphans / Endorphins, cool refreshments at Poolhaus, felt our hearts beat at Cor, drank bubbly with Bubble 'n' Bass before slirping cocktails with the Flamin' Merkin...

Our memory may fail us...but yours may help us to put the full picture together.

Nowhere 2014 theme

The Ridiculous Roller Coaster Ride

Screen Shot 2014-01-27 at 23.45.03

The Nowhere community casted their votes and Nowhere 2014 was themed "The Ridiculous Roller Coaster Ride".

"The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question: "Is this real, or is this just a ride?" And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, "Hey, don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride."  - Bill Hicks

 
 
Sickness report

1-e-coli-and-shigella-sp-bacteria-stephanie-schullerNowhere sickness report


A lot of people got sick at Nowhere in 2013, so we've had an expert team looking into it, including an epidemiologist/biostatistician specialising in infectious diseases and a research fellow/scientific study programme leader. We’ve also been working with a French medical epidemiologist who is investigating similar outbreaks at other festivals.

You can read the full report here, including recommendations

The report has a lot of technical language so our translators are currently translating the recommendations and we'll be publishing these as they become available.
