The Law



  • All participants are reminded that despite ‘going nowhere’, you are bound by the local and national laws of Spain. Please check the local laws before you leave home.
  • If you are planning on driving while in Spain, you should check that your insurance and license are valid in Spain. You can get advice on this from the Spanish embassy in your country.
  • Nowhere does not condone illegal drug use and strongly advises against individuals taking risks with their health in a harsh, remote environment. Please bear in mind the limited medical support on-site before you consider placing yourself at risk.
  • Please be safe, be smart and have lots of fun!

Art installations, theme camps (Barrios), vehicles, events and performances are not owned or operated by Nowhere (Europe) Ltd and/or Nowhere España (‘NOrg’) and therefore the Participant also assumes any and all risk of injury or loss associated with or arising from their operation or occurrence and release NOrg from any claim arising from this risk. The Participant agrees to hold NOrg, its officers, directors, members, employees, volunteers, representatives, agents, contractors and subcontractors, and other participants, harmless from any damages, injuries, losses, liabilities and expenses relating to, resulting from or arising out of the participation in any programme, event, activity or service at the Event.

Any conduct that is contrary to the Participant Code of Conduct and to the Law, will not only lead to expulsion from the event without possibility of re-entry, but will be notified to the competent authorities, Norg declines any responsibility for these acts.

Entering the event without a ticket or a valid wristband and/or helping other people to enter the event without a ticket or a valid wristband, and/or being found on the event premises without a ticket or a valid wristband will lead to immediate expulsion from the event and notification to legal authorities. Entry to the Event is a revocable license that may be revoked at any time for any reason in accordance to law.

  1. 4. Early termination of the Event

The amount of the ticket is non-refundable even if the Event is terminated early, due to harsh weather, acts of nature, governmental regulation or other conditions beyond NOrg’s control.

  1. 6. Updates

Please see the Nowhere 2017 Survival Guide for the final version. The Event and entry, and the present conditions are subject to the applicable Spanish law. In case of dispute with NOrg, the Participants with express renounce to its own or applicable jurisdiction, accept to be bound by the Courts and Tribunals of the city of Barcelona.
