KarmaLeon - The Art Car for Nowhere 2019 playa


Hello Hippies !

First of all all the Zooasis team is sending you a huge loads of dusty love for the warm welcome you did to our beloved Artcar Leon !

We lived epic moments altogether and were super happy to bring our love for music and our talented DJs to the Playa this year…

We already want to be back next yeau our dear Leon is a bit suffering from the Nowhere hangover : dust and rain and the long road home caused him several technical issues and we are a bit short of money to fix it…

So if you love Leon, the dance, the Karmaoke, the sound, the lights, and if you can afford to, help us bring back Leon to life here !!!!



Help us build the funkiest, shiniest, most awesome (and probably the biggest) Art Car to roam the Nowhere playa altogether and in style !

This year Zooasis is turning up the volume and building an Art Car... and we need your help to build it ! 

With your help, we can we can spread some tunes (and a lot of love) on the playa.
With your help, we can let crowd of fantastical animals roam free in the desert.
With your help, we can stir up the poor, the tired, the beautiful people and help them pursue happiness
With your help, we can spread some good Karma and positive vibes in the Spanish desert
With your help, we can chameleon the s*** out of this Nowhere 


If you were able to come by the Zooasis Barrio last year, you may remember our smoothies bar, our Make-A-Wish art project, our best friends' wedding ceremony, our sunset parties...Nowhere has been an important part of our lives for the past 4 years, and we are deeply attached to what it brings us, and how we can give back and participate in making it a memorable (dare I say life changing?) experience for others.

This year, our plan is to bring an artcar with a fully fledged sound system and walk the playa spreading some funky sound and techno tunes to all the barrios and around the playa. We started from scratch with an old truck and have started building the structure around it. We've already got the sound system too and are in the process of figuring out how to attach and secure it around the DJ platform! There's still a lot of work on the decoration, the light system and the overall stylishness of the animal. 
The ArtCar's name is KarmaLeon, a.k.a Leon the Bringer of Karma a.k.a Leon King of the Zooasis a.k.a Leon the Chameleon. 
>> You can see some sketches of our plans below and check out the video of the first build weekend the Update section, we'll update regularly with the progress. 



What will your contributions go to ?
We already bought the truck, the sound system and a lot of material...but we need your help to continue!

- 2200€ to cover the 6x4m chameleon completely with lights 
- 2400€ to add some crazy visual mapping on its skin
