because this party ain't free
Everyone needs to purchase a ticket
Unlike many commercial festivals, Nowhere is a not-for-profit organisation and nobody gets paid or receives free tickets, including artists, performers, volunteers and organisers. Tickets are our only source of income to pay for event costs as well as funding grants for artists, performers, and innovation projects.
However inclusion is one of Nowhere’s 10 principles, so we offer discounted tickets for people in the situations below:
To make it possible for parents to participate, we offer low tickets prices for children.
- 14 to 18 years old: TBD
- Under 14 years old: TBD
You can purchase these along with the purchase of the adults’ tickets, no additional steps are required.
For those who live with hearing impairment, physical disability or other conditions that require additional consideration, we offer concessionary tickets for their companions. A companion is any person who, by attending the event, enables another person to participate.
To apply, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to the huge demand for Low Income tickets this year we’ve done some juggling of ticket allocations and opened up 150 more Low Income tickets. The application process is open from the 2nd of May at 9:00 a.m until the 15th of May at 17:00 inclusive. It will take us a few days to process all the applications and then we’ll notify all successful and unsuccessful applicants.They will only be valid until the 2nd of June.
We ask that everyone pays what they can afford, but if you don’t have paid full-time work, you might qualify for a low-income ticket. To request a low-income discount, you’ll have to fill in this form.
Since 2019, We created an high income tickets, priced around €100 over the standard ticket. It’s the opposite of a low income ticket. If you are feeling extra financially comfy this year, you can chip in to support the event even more by buying a high income ticket. These tickets will help us expand our offering of low income tickets, our arts funding, and other basic infrastructure for the event. What perks, privileges, special gifts and VIP status do you get if you buy a high income ticket?
None. Zero. Zip. Zilch. But you’ll be helping Nowhere be a more equitable and better-run event. If you can afford it, do consider buying a high income ticket. We would love you forever and ever (though we already do anyway.)
If you have any questions about Nowhere finances or want to see a breakdown of Nowhere’s accounts, you can find it here.
What do I need to buy a ticket?
Each person is limited to purchasing 2 tickets. Every participant’s identification will be checked when entering the event, and the name on the ticket must match a government-issued photo ID (passport or European ID card). When you make the purchase, you will need to provide the name(s) that will appear on each ticket you are purchasing, as well as the email addresses of each ticket holder. (Children are exempt from having to provide email addresses.)
We accept nearly every type of card. You will need to provide the full name of the cardholder as well as the security code on the back of the card. We do not keep this data, its only used at the time of purchase by the purchase platform
If you applied for a low-income discount, you should receive notification of whether your application was approved before ticket sales, and if approved, you will receive a discount code that you will need to provide when purchasing the ticket.
Low-income discount recipients get an extra perk: your ticket will be reserved for you to purchase up until the expiry date stated in your discount confirmation email. You don’t need to rush to purchase your discounted ticket to secure your ticket. See below for additional details about low-income discounts.
I bought my ticket! What happens next?
You’ll get an email from our ticket agent with your ticket details. If you can’t find this, or need to change anything, then log into their website with the details you used when purchasing the ticket and update your account.
The Nowhere Survival Guide will be emailed to you a few weeks before the festival, but don’t wait until then to start preparing! Nowhere is a harsh environment where each person needs to be self-reliant.
Additionally, all of the art and creative elements, barrios, support and infrastructures are made by the participants, including YOU! That’s why we recommend you start planning quite early what you will contribute to the event and how you will take care of your food, water, shelter, and other personal needs.

No, however if you plan to bring a vehicle to Nowhere, you will need to register your vehicle through a separate process.
You will be allowed to park on site within your barrio limits or next to your tent in the free camping area, however you will not be allowed to drive around the site during the event or leave the site and park in your camp again after returning.
If you plan to leave and return with your vehicle during the event, you will need to park it in the car park next to the Gate.
If you’ve read this entire FAQ page and your question isn’t addressed here, then send an email to our amazing Tickets Team volunteers at email@example.com.
We will accept tickets on mobile devices (e.g. smartphones and tablets) as well as in printed form. We recommend you bring it in both printed and digital formats to have a backup in case one of them fails (for example if you lose your printed ticket, or your phone battery is dead by the time you arrive).
Whatever format you decide on, don’t forget to bring:
- Your ticket, either digital or on paper. Make sure it has a barcode!
- Your government-issued photo ID that matches your face and the name on the ticket.
No. When you first arrive at the gate, you’ll get a wristband that allows you on and off site whenever you want.
