Thank you all for making Nowhere 2012 so incredibly special!
We had more people, from more countries, with more barrios, more art, more art cars, more music and more creativity. And that’s all down to YOU!
And while it’s sad to wash off the dust, we have our wonderful memories and our new friendships to remind us of the magic of Nowhere... Don't be a stranger!
With much love and dust,
Lady Belle and the Nowhere crew xx
Bigger and better
Our community grows wider and stronger every year, and we now have amazing Decoms and Burns all across Europe. Check the website for details as events come up, and we’ll still send you the odd email throughout the year… Things coming up to keep an eye out for include the first-ever Danish Burn Øtopia, Irish Decom, London Decom, Paris Decom and Italian Burning Weekend. Our freaky family is never far away!
Would your mum approve?
You guys are amazing at respecting each other and our community, but it’s always good to be reminded – please be considerate when uploading photos to our gallery, Facebook and other sites. That includes checking with the people in the pic and making sure there isn’t accidentally someone in the background who might be unhappy being plastered all over the internet! If you see a photo of you on the internet you’d rather wasn’t there, just ask to have it taken down – if you’re not sure who’s put it up, email
and we’ll see if we can figure it out.
Made new friends but never quite got round to exchanging details? Welcome to Nowhere! Your best chance of tracking people down is to post on the forums and on our Facebook page. We also have a network of regional reps who might be able to help you track people down. Good luck!
Every year has challenges – some things work well, some don’t. To make next year’s Nowhere better, we want to know what you think worked and what didn’t. Feel free to post your thoughts on the forums or you can email
We’ll be emailing you our 2012 census shortly, so we can find out more about you and you can tell us what you liked (and didn’t) about Nowhere this year. Keep your eyes peeled!
Camera? Goggles? Favourite steampunk monocle? Check the lost and found thread on the forums to see if someone has found them... Unfortunately your lost innocence and the plot are unlikely to be returned.
You’ve lived it, now blog it

Can’t say it enough, you guys are all superstars! See you next year!
