Aotearoa’s coolest little festival is located somewhere outside of Whanganui*. Welcome to Nowhere features both leading and up-and-coming independent artists from around the country. This event boasts 2.5 jam-packed summer days/nights of camping, music, poetry, theatre and art in a remote and idyllic setting! Organisers have curated three official stages which showcase some of Aotearoa’s finest independent music acts and up-and-coming poets and artists. Welcome to Nowhere is a small collective-run festival, visitors expect a close-knit community event where everybody looks out for one another.
