Life Is Noise and Matilda Bay - Redback Beer Present This is Nowhere 2012.

We are conjuring an experience... a frolic into subtle states of a musical mind, where you are free to indulge in imagination and submit to the strange.

2012 will see the doors of sonic perception in our city burst open by way of a shiny new music event, This Is Nowhere, where you are invited to indulge in the subterranean sounds of artists from home and afar.

Music lovers of many varieties will be treated to an audible buffet of musicians and performers – some familiar, some foreign; some underground and some more surface-inclined; to those you can sit peacefully and listen to and those others – who will make you want to dance.

The setting for This Is Nowhere has been carefully selected to enhance the already enchanting sounds of the line-up. Feast your ears on tasty tunes in a clearing beneath a canopy of pines, where the light only dapples, to a theatre where the audience is one with the acts on stage, and a courtyard full of giant man-made mushrooms.

Under 18’s are not invited, which means you’re free to wander with drink-in-hand. Delicious and affordable food and beverage merchants will ensure no one goes empty-stomached (or empty-pocketed). There will be plenty of toilets; lots of parking and public transport options; plus a plethora of fun things to do. Capacity is limited so everyone will have enough room for their own uninterrupted experience.

A party of like-minded music lovers will surround you, and your musical experience is all that matters. Taking place at the Somerville Auditorium, Lawrence Jackson Court and Dolphin Theatre on the campus at UWA, we have the first of two announcements ready for your hot hands. The Dolphin Theatre lineup is on its way, but for now, let us satiate your thirst by letting you in on the secrets of the Somerville and Lawrence Jackson Court. It is our pleasure to announce the following international, national and local acts:
