barrios
(theme camps)

Barrios aka Theme Camps are a fundamental part of making Nowhere what it is!

Let’s be honest, coming to Nowhere is a lot of work. It is fun, fantastic, interesting and quite probably a life-changing experience too – but it’s also tough. Even bringing only yourself into the desert, with all the supplies required to support yourself for a week, and then packing everything out again takes some planning. And that’s just the self-reliance part – we haven’t even talked about the self-expression part yet!

By working together with a group of like-minded people, you can divide the work so you still have some time, energy and resources left over for fun things like art projects, bars, trampolines and maybe even a ball pen (to name just a few of the great things heroic theme camps have brought out to the Los Monegros desert over the years).

Chuchichäschtli, Fuschtlifaffli, Fluffyfäschtli. Part of Nowhere since 2006. This time our name contains a dot for every barrio member. 42 in total. A complex mathematical question? The answer to everything? The amount of sails in our shade structure? Whatever. This is your favourite living room. Humble and extravangant. Home of the official DORM (Departement Of Registering Music) office! Ready for new adventures in our 15th year on the field of dirt!


APOCALYSPE NOW HERE SOON WHERE?

Now that humankind is sliding from one crisis into even deeper ones, one thing is becoming frightfully clear: the end of the world is upon us. In fact, doomsday could be any day now, as revealed by the everyday calculations of our mental state-of-the-art clock… Should we worry? Hell no, let’s go out with a banger!

We have got you covered with premium Apocalypse pre-parties, featuring exclusive catering services that needn’t be sustainable any longer, plus front row seats with sweeping views over the collapse of human civilisation.

For those who prefer a more participatory kind of catastrophe, we offer dances on the edge of the volcano and other immersive experiences that will probably leave you screaming for more final countdowns. We’re at your service to answer your prayers. Because at the end of the day, the apocalypse is always now. And in any event, the apocalypse is always here.


ARE WE THERE YET?

Are we there yet? Are you there yet? Yes, you have arrived to the peaceful but yet playful oasis on the playa: a place to rest from the craziness of it all, to be nurtured and regain forces before dancing all night! Yoga, ceremonies, workshops and healing therapies will dust your chakras and make you feel good. But beware, because this year, we are also finding our spirituality in less serious circumstances.

Pop in for our Cacaolat Ceremony or mankini yoga and you’ll understand what we are all about. After two years waiting for our return, our tribe is taking off to fly high with widespread wings of playfulness, weirdness, creativity and spice. Come join us for our Awesome Friday ecstatic dance while we wait for the end of the world, smiling and knowing this life is unique.


 ARRETE TON CIRQUE!

Our camp offers different daytime activities and games, such as yoga, dance, poi dancing, juggling, body painting, hug deli, wheel of fortune etc. Every evening, we also offer fresh punch and some snacks to warm people up for the night. On top of that, we have a chill place and multisensory dome.

CHARMING CHICKPEAS

What do you have in common with a broccoli? The haircut maybe? Or is it that you both taste yummy when covered in olive oil, salt and pepper? You are probably right but the answer we would like to propose is: the gracious shape of both your bodies!

Veggies and us, humans, share physical existence in this world and that’s what we invite you to celebrate with us: embodiment! In addition to luscious vegan delicacies, we offer a space for tasting but also for cuddle puddles, conscious touch/movement, contact-improv, acro-yoga as well a deep sensory dive in the constellation of both human and vegetable entities. If you feel like tickling your senses, come join us in this colorful and tasty exploration!

We are welcoming and inclusive towards all genders, sexualities, ages, ethnicities; and we encourage innovative sexual exploration; celebrate the beauty of intimacy; promote sex-positivity; provide sex & kink education and experience; challenge social norms in a consent focused environment.


COSTUME CAMP

Where can I find a pair of fluffy rabbit ears? Is there a flashy catwalk to strut down? Wonder where I can bling my face and nails? If these are the type of questions you are asking yourself at NW, then Boom! Costume Camp is your type of camp.

We are a medium size camp open to all event goers, with ridiculous amounts of costumes, decor, bling, random objects and silliness. A eclectic mix of shows, random flash-mobbing, workshops and parties keeps us busy and connected day and night. More is more is what we like to say.


CURIOUS CREATURES

Imagine a magical place beyond the third mushroom on the right. You can only find it by getting yourself lost. You will meet magical creatures who will receive you with open arms and hearts.

In the words of Dana International “Viva la vida”, so make your body feel good at our workshops and beautify yourselves at our make-up table!

Rumor has it we are brewing a no talent show for you to leave your talent in your tent and express yourself, don’t repress yourself! You already knooooooooooooooooooow


DONUT

Happy, happy….. joy, joy! This would have been our 10th year if it hadn’t been for you know what but we’re counting our blessings. We’ll be serving coffee and donuts on some mornings or hopefully every morning before dawn. Which mornings? Every morning? We don’t know! The deadline for submitting this barrio blurb was way back in April. We can’t plan to commit that far out. In any case, if any of you hippie rascals still happen to be wandering, or stumbling around the playa before dawn, come by and find out. If you happen to be a newcomer to this wonderful thing we like to call Nowhere, please remember, no cup…… no coffee.

We’ll still give you donuts, but it’s not the same without a hot cup of coffee goodness. Even if the threat of the coming mosquito Armageddon sunrise doesn’t distract you enough from the reality that your mouth we’ll probably get really dry and then you’ll get dehydrated and then you’ll be in big trouble because now, to top it off, you’re also constipated and there’s four more days of Nowhere left and all because you forgot to bring your cup.

Hmmm, maybe we should insist on no cup… no coffee and… no donuts for your own safety.

The Hammock Reactor is built by Salon Leobard, an European art salon based in Vienna, Austria. The reusable wood and metal structure has been to other burns since 2017. As an experiment in applied partycle pseudo physics, the scientific dream of the reactor is to gather a critical mass of hippies with a high chill energy level in a small space to ignite a hot hippie fusion plasma.

You might stumble upon a game? Will you team up for a playfight? Learn something new about yourself? Or get naked and naughty while (re)discovering your kinks? No one ever knows what’s behind our doorstep. But no one day within Loophole will ever be like the one before….


MERCURIAL RETROGRADES

MORNING GLORY OASIS

We will create a place to relax, wake up, settle down and revive. This will be a place to connect and share experiences and adventures, under the cozyness of soft music with a cup of freshly brewed coffee and some sweetness, morning hours from 9:00 to 12:00.

At night we turn into a mesmerizing dance floor with a soft spot for vintage psychedelic lighting effects and a wide variety of music styles.


MIRAGE

A safe haven to reconnect. That is what we would like Mirage to be this year. After two years of Covid, we have all lost a part of our sense of community within the confusion of self-isolation, fear and doubt. This year we want Mirage to be a place where we can safely come back out of our shells and re-learn and re-experience all the wonderful interactions that are possible between us.

A place where we can live, dance, love and have new experiences and connect with new and old friends on the Spanish playa. Come and join us in this exciting and wonderful adventure! Whether you are a new member or one of the older ones, we can’t wait to see you again in the dust!

We will be offering workshops – from quirky mooooooing to transformational regeneration of a potential you might have been seeking for a while… The herd is going to erect multiple spaces for various transfigurations – a chill out space to layback doused in music and indulgence; musical jamming; auto-shamanistic journey dome.

As our namesake indicates we will be celebrating the lunar cycle with a pre/post sunset bar with tapas and drinks, and perhaps some bovine shenanigan exchange. We are friendly to all and welcome all to be friendly with us 🙂

RED ZONE AMAZONS

Three amazons walk into a bar. The first one builds up a sound system and plays funny and weird but dancable music. The second one builds up shades and puts sofas and other fluffy things underneath it so everyone can siesta or do a workshop. The third one goes directly to the bar and shakes some tasty drinks. Do you like to dancy dance all night? Then you may turn into an amazon and join the red side!

ARRÊTE TON CIRQUE !

Our camp offers different daytime activities and games, such as yoga, dance, poi dancing, juggling, body painting, hug deli, wheel of fortune etc. Every evening, we also offer fresh punch and some snacks to warm people up for the night.

LOVE…MUSIC…DANCE…ART…CARE…CLOSER…LIGHTINING…AND YOU.


OF KHORSE

A stable fit for a horse, of khorse. Just bring yours along for some tender love and care, medicine and repair. Want to ride a stallion or mare?


OPEN AIR


PEOPLE FROM OTHER PLANETS

LEDs, robots, visuals and glitches – come to us for workshops, demos, performances and advice about maker and new media art.


PLANET PULPO

Planet Pulpo is a relaxed barrio that is community oriented and supportive for its underwater creatures. We are 30 different sea creatures: pulpos, squids, jellyfishes, turtles and the odd lake monster…

Since we are the underwater barrio, we also want to bring some cool relief to the participants of Nowhere. At least one day, we will be debuting the Planet Pulpo Spa with fans, mist, a nail salon and a hair wash station. Sit back, relax, and try to forget for a moment that you are in a 50° field of dirty. Our chilling space also provides shade, a sofa, hammocks and mattresses.


PLAYGROUND

We’re struggling with our identity, but are famous for our hospitality. Welcoming all dusty beings wandering around to come and chill with us. We like to think of ourselves as the perfect camp to come play, dance and chill in the afternoon and early evening. We host some pretty awesome workshops every year. Our infamous “Tittie Appreciation hour” for example. People from all over the playa come running up to see what the commotion is about!


RAN’DOME

Ran’Dome comes back for its 6th year at Nowhere as the place where anything happens. During the day, we host various workshops, at night we host DJs. Whatever your mood is, you’ll find here space to chill, talk, play, have fun and dance.


RETARDIGRADES

As Retardigrades we are spiralling out of control since 2016, we tend to be mostly non sensical, and mostly vegan. Do not take us too seriously, we will promise to do the same to you.


SANDY BISCUITS

The Sandy Biscuits provide a wonderful relaxed afternoon hang-out space. There is shade, there are some fine tunes, lounge spaces, exquisite company and most probably some (sandy) biscuits. We are a welcoming bunch and like hosting daytime events where you can lean & vibe with us and share some drinks, wiggles, silly banter or deep conversation until we close camp activities for the night to roam the rest of the playa.


SI BARRIO

We’re a group of people wo had a dream: going to Nowhere. Under our shaded dome, you’ll find a warm and cosy atmosphear, a bit of yoga, vegan food and the best beer on the playa.


SOLAR PUNKS

SolarPunk is a movement based around a sustainable, renewable future; free from rulers and borders. Focused on craftsmanship, community and utopian vision, we explore possible futures through art, discussion and the occasional party.


SOLONIA WILDS BAR

Our mission is to create the most welcoming and fucked up bar on the playa ! Under a very large shade structure, we’re offering wine and cold beer all day and night (well… until we run out of booze), and trying to entertain our guests with djs, a dance area, stupid drinking games, and also a very unique powertool massaging zone, the infamous “Buffer Zone”.


SSSH!

sssh! is THE place to be for massage and meditation at Nowhere. We’re really excited to continue this tradition for 2019 – our 10th year. Once again we’ll be running a mix of meditation groups from yoga to tantra to massage classes. And of course, we’ll have our annual mud bath!


THE BACKSTAGE

A call to all curious dance longing creatures of the night and morning. Come play with us and find out what really happens in the backstage…


THE ̵͉̰̮͈̬̻̮B̷͉̺̟U͓̰̬͕͢R̖̱E̷A̬͉̱U͇̞̟ ̯̳OF DEATH MANAGEMENT

Here at the B́u̥̟̺͡r̮͖̣͎͖̯͚e̠͇̠͈̼̥a̹u͢ͅ, ͈̺ͅour administrative duties and civic responsibilities to the citizens of greater nowhere are the following

  1. Provide tea to the playa each evening
  2. Assist our patrons with e͟go̴ ͞d̵e͢at͘h
  3. Remain dysentery free for two consecutive years
  4. Revel in our attachment

We are an alcohol, tobacco, and small-talk free barrio. We value curiosity, openness, silence, non-violent communication, critical thinking, introspection, play, and, of course, civic (and bureaucratic!) responsibility.


THE LOOPHOLE

Colours, Tea, Self-Exploration, Sex-Positivity, Rationality and Unicorns.


TIKIBAR

Multi-sensual ceremonial tribal-space – we are offering a stimulation of all senses with purifying energizing experience. People of all ages including families are invited to explore – very child friendly area. Come and get your surprise.


TRASH UR PLANET

Camp Trash uR Planet will bring a new light to the usage of materials in our commercial and capitalistic world. Through various art projects we will invite the people of nowhere to rethink their views on possession, waste and value. It is a place where the change of mind from simply consuming to actually using and repurposing is made visual.

Where waste is seen as raw material. Where our mother earth is seen as a closed system and therefore by definition all material is a limited edition. It is a project that the whole of Nowhere can work on, together.


TRIP ADVISOR

Life is a trip, so you better have one of our advisors to guide you though it!
Trip Advisor is the psychedelic playground of nowhere, the one place for creating connections, experiencing workshops, getting knowledge and creating a path of a responsible, meaningful, fun and mutual journeys that extend far beyond what these words here can explain.

With plenty of activities, workshops and ceremonies to fill your day time,
and our trip advisors that will accompany you at night time in our mutual sensual and creative journeys, we’ve got something extraordinary for you any time you come here.


ÜBERTOWN

Following the grotesque greed and gluttony of Übertown’s past, The Church Of Übertown will eradicate the heretical hedonism of Nowhere and bring you back in contact with the Elemental, the Radiant, the Alpha…. Uranium.


WAIT FOR EAT

We’re good at food, bodypainting, and waiting for nothing – which is the main course on our Barrio’s menu. Serving good times, lounge music, and a chill space from dawn till dusk. Our diner acts as a gallery space for neo-post-contemporary-antique-burner art and interactive installations. Stop by and wait for eat.


WAVES OF MUSIC

We are bringing the dance to Nowhere, in Waves of Music. International top DJ’s, top sound and top atmosphere for the dances of your live. Ecstatic Dance & Contact Impro, morning yoga, singing circles. When you get the choice to sit it out or dance, we hope you’ll dance like nobody’s watching.


WERKHAÜS

Werkhaüs is home for those who create the Nowhere we love and adore – the volunteers. This barrio is a NOrg project and part of NOrg’s volunteer department. Its goal is providing a social space and comfort for the people that spend a lot of time to making Nowhere happen!

Werkhaüs is the living-room of the set up crew & strike crew and it is turned into a barrio during the event. So, during the event, Werkhaüs is a normal-ish barrio, where “very involved humans” are welcome to join us.


WHY NOT?

Come and see where the comfort started – literally: Nowhere’s original and best chill out camp is back for our 11th year of giving you the fluffy Cocoon: a place to collapse and carry on enjoying the night when your legs can’t take any more but your brain is still up and about.

We’ve also got some new activities to enjoy including new workshops, reading corner and a few pop-up games to look out for. Also back this year with our sister camp Babycham, we’ll have our usual kick-arse Thursday night village party with top-notch cocktails. Or come and enjoy our latest cinema experience, whenever you see it playing.


WONDEREVER

Quite known for our chilled space and relaxing hammocks, Wonderever is pressing the reset button this year. What will it look like? Noone knows yet…

We’re trying on a small scaled the do-ocracy model, with an emphasis on wandering and wondering. Wierd art? Strange fuckery? Questioning place?


YES!

Across the dusty desert you appeared like a mirage. I was mesmerized at first sight. My family jewels jiggled a bit, but I was carrying them that day for mom. I never forgot you, or that moment. It touched me deep down ( like when I used to go to confessional).

Yes! is a positive expression and exercise in opening ourselves to the world. Full of playfulness and fun, sexiness and joy!


ZOOASIS

Zooasis is your go-to-place for a bit of fresh air and tropical vibe in this hot and sunny desert! In the afternoon, we’ll make sure to cool you off with a refreshing breeze, ice cold drinks (iced tea, smoothies, milk shakes and other refreshments) and various workshops. At night, we’ll stimulate the party animal in you with our great DJ crew.

Bread & Tomato

The catalan barrio rides into the dust again. We are bringing tons of the famous catalan tapa ‘Pa amb tomàquet’ for everyone, along with good music, art, love and smiles.


Camp Fiasco

Camp Fiasco provides: an excellent soft flooring for siestas in the shade, a sense of humour, nothing that could possibly go wrong, a Jesus Convention and a platform for your own Epic Speech on a Magic Flying Carpet. And if nobody shows up, well, it’s a fiasco.


Chuchichäschtli – Nachttischlämpli

Chuchichäschtli, Fuschtlifaffli, Fluffyfäschtli. 
We go back to the roots. The legend lives on. 
This time we celebrate: Nachttischlämpli! 
This is your favourite living room. 
Humble and extravangant. 
Expect boring suprises. Or maybe not. 
Gwäh, Gwäh!


ConnectiviTea

There is no escape. You can’t be a vagabond and an artist and still be a solid citizen, a wholesome, upstanding man. You want to get drunk, so you have to accept the hangover. You say yes to the sunlight and pure fantasies, so you have to say yes to the filth and the nausea. Everything is within you, gold and mud, happiness and pain, the laughter of childhood and the apprehension of death. Say yes to everything, shirk nothing. Don’t try to lie to yourself. You are not a solid citizen. You are not a Greek. You are not harmonious, or the master of yourself. You are a bird in the storm. Let it storm! Let it drive you! How much have you lied! A thousand times, even in your poems and books, you have played the harmonious man, the wise man, the happy, the enlightened man. In the same way, men attacking in war have played heroes, while their bowels twitched. My God, what a poor ape, what a fencer in the mirror man is- particularly the artist- particularly myself!


Costume Camp

It’s all about frilly knickers, dusty tutus and mincing your moves on our catwalk. We offer costumes, face painting, glitter slaps, and general good times to everyone anytime. xxx


Cosmik Animals

Come and dance with us! We love musik and this year we want to marry blasting dj’s with a blasting sound system. We are going nowhere with every animal that you can find inside yourself.

His immense eye, a sacred link between the infinite universe of darkness and our noisy and bright little world, will absorb all your torments and pains to leave you smug and revealed, full of this new energy that will finally allow you to live without hesitation our glorious present.

Hyper Flow

Hyper Flow Camp arrives to the Arena! This is an experimental creative camp where we will help each other to make our dreams reality!

In NOW we trust!

Tired of all the layers and layers of tags and properties that have been added over the years to your “personality”? Come play with us the peeling off of the habitual “you”, like the peeling off of an onion. After all the layers are gone what remains? NOTHING/NOWTHING! A spacious sensation where all is possible! We would like to offer a slow-down experience, where people can take vacation from their pre-conceived personality and come back to an ever-fresh and ever-new NOW.

We are tolerant and open minded, a strongly participatory camp that treasures the extreme match of being small and very active.


Playground

We’re not a circus camp as our name may suggest but we do have two giant trampolines and slack lines. We’re famous for our hospitality, welcoming all dusty beings wandering around, to come and chill with us. We like to think of ourselves as the perfect camp to come play, dance and chill in the afternoon / early evening. We host some awesome dance workshops every year, not to mention our infamous “Tittie Appreciation hour”, that has people from all over the playa come running up to see what all the commotion is about!


Psychedelephant

A diverse, inclusive, elephant shaped party space! With workshops and performances by day, DJ slots and live bands by night, our double-domed elephant offers a place to dance or a soft spot to sit down at any time. We’d describe our sound as FUNKY, if it’s cool and catchy we’ll play it so bring us those Cat Empire glitch hop mixes you’ve been working on.

We’re experienced burners and practically minded party people welcoming old and new nobodies alike. Expect a friendly, down to earth crew of jokers and a lot of late nights. All we ask is that you bring a good attitude and a desire to help us host a great space!


Ran’Dome

Ran’Dome comes back for its fifth year at Nowhere, as a place where anything can happen. During the day, various workshops happen in the shade of Ze Dome, while a variety of parties are hosted during crazy nights. Whatever your mood is, you’ll find here space to chill, talk, play, have fun and dance. 


Retardigrades

We are mostly about nonsense things, and not very serious about anything… And we carry stuff around while we play, or hum or sing haphazardly the imperial march from Star Wars… (we do not recognize their TM out of practical purposes).


Shandy Bisqwuits

Sandy Biscuits hosts a colorful and relaxed daytime destination, where we love to chill together in the shade of our excellent Lean & Vibe lounging area, hosting Nobodies who are looking for some fine music & company.

Solonia Wilds Bar

Our mission is to create the most welcoming and fucked up bar on the playa. Under a very large shade structure, we’re offering wine and cold beer all day (well… until we run out of booze), and trying to entertain our guests with djs, a small dance area, pole dancing, a powertool massaging zone, and other stupid stuff. 


Slumberland

Imagine a magical place beyond the third mushroom on the right. You can only find it by getting yourself lost. You will meet magical creatures who will receive you with open arms and hearts. Wanna play? They will lure you in and seduce you. You will feel welcome, 100% loved and seen. Then you doze off in a luxurious canopy bed and dream of having a hot threesome with Han Solo and Barbarella in space. 

The friendly folks of the small Slumberland barrio are a happy bunch, mostly from the Netherlands. We dreamed of creating our own little sex positive safe haven in a corner of Nowhere, where we can chill, connect, frolic around, enjoy the shade, each other and organize some fun workshops and rituals. This is the first year we are making this dream come true. Exciting!


Sssh!

Since 2010 sssh! has been the massage and meditation central of Nowhere. We’re really excited to continue this tradition for 2018. Once again we’ll be running a mix of meditation groups from yoga to tantra to massage classes. And of course, we’ll have our annual mud bath!


Super Barrio Brothers

Super Barrio Brothers will be returning in 2018 as a slightly smaller sound camp moving to the amber noise zone so that we can all get a better night’s sleep, we’ll concentrating on a more relaxed festival and adopting a kinky theme with some fun daytime events and a few evening parties. 


The Flat Playa Society

Despite what the so-called ‘scientists’ have been claiming for years, we possess compelling evidence that the playa is flat ! Find the truth by yourselves.  Our barrio is the main station of a magical train, the Tchoutchou Dragon Express. We serve coffee late morning before noon, and offer random occasions of Mölkky or Twister game, beer & popcorn bar, as well as unsuspected Yoga sessions. French efficiency at its best.”


Thέ Lόόphόlέ

We come to the playa to build a colorful chest full of surprises. Within our beautiful shade structure you will encounter a quantazillion of various things: Maybe you get a cup of tea and a brownie? You might stumble upon a fun game? Will you team up for a playfight? Learn how to program a strip of blinky LEDs? Run into a pop up whisky tasting? Or get naked and naughty while (re)discovering your kinks? No one ever knows whats behind our doorstep. But no day within Thέ Lόόphόlέ will ever be like the one before….

Werkhaüs

First to come! Last to pull out! Werkhaus is home for those who create the Nowhere we love and adore – the volunteers. Before the event, this is one of the first shades to go up. And after the event, this is the last oasis in the desert.

During the event, Werkhaus becomes a normal-ish barrio, with paying campers, who enjoy delicious food and drinks while relaxing under our giant shade structure in between shifts and activities.


Zooasis

Zooasis is your go-to-place for a bit of fresh air and tropical vibe in this hot and sunny desert!

Fuschtlifaffli – The Last Shank

We are a home. A place where weird and dusty explorers find some rest. The random place you stumble upon on your travels through colourful storms. The party with your neighbours in the backyard that gets out of control. The zeppelin that takes you through far away clouds. The broken plate in your Chuchichäschtli. The harbour for your castle in the sky. An alp full of carts and carriages. We are Putten. We are the Fuscht. We are the Faff.  We are the Last Shank.

Mirage

“”Why?”” has been an integral question to our existance as a camp. Over multiple dinners and discussions we have tried to understand what brings us together and why we would like to go to Nowhere together. Our conclusion is that we would like to have many more dinners and discussions about sustainablity,innovation and beauty, we would like to quench our thirst for curiousity and experience, we would like to surround ourselves with wonderors who, like us, want to experience social forms that will lead to creation of the elusive utopia and finally we would like to keep it enjoyable and spontanious.

Never Never Learn

Never Never Learn is back having learnt sweet FA in the ‘real world’. We will be throwing one last hoorah, in the name of Halloweaster, hip hop and less than desirable organisational skills. 

Orphans

Orphans – Hugs and chill out space.

Playground

In the late afternoon and early evening, when people have emerged from their heat induced coma but aren’t yet seeing unicorns, our DJs will be playing the finest chilled out sets accompanied by a fanciful selection of dusty tapas, cocktails and more. 

Palomas Naranjas

With a penchant for absurdity, and a passion for love birds, Palomas Naranjas will be a space where you can finally get the marriage of your dreams. We will provide the music, rings, a sinister minister, and of course plenty of wedding attires to choose from.  You just have to show up and bring someone to marry… lover, friend(s), yourself, or even your phone (we don’t judge!). At night you can expect a space with some sweet tunes from our DJ’s and plenty of dancing.

Planet Pulpo

In Soviet Russia party comes to you. In Planet Pulpo you can go to party but the party won’t come to you 🙂

Planet Pulpo is a relaxed barrio that started 4 years ago as a drama-free chilled space and has become more community oriented and more supportive for its underwater creatures. 

Ran’Dome

Alternative to joining a barrio: freecamping

Did you know that you don’t have to join a barrio? Some Nowhere participants prefer to camp alone or with a small group of friends and organise their own food, water, and shade. We call it “freecamping”.

It gives them the freedom to do camping just the way they like. You can’t reserve space in the freecamp areas, you won’t know exactly where you’ll be camping until you find the space, it is settled on a first-come-first-camped basis. Alternately, if you have some big ideas, you can form your own barrio.

Check out the Freecampers Facebook Group to pool resources, ask tips and meet other freecampers!
