Of course. But that's the case when the event is visible. If it's not, 
there still needs to be some security and fencing, but not to the

That's the more interesting point: I don't see why you don't want to 
build such an place in a more urban area. Actually, one of those places 
I know of, is located in a city (unfortunately in Dutch only):

  "Een van de bekendste projecten van Atelier Van Lieshout is de 
  oprichting van AVL-Ville, 2001, een culturele vrijstaat in de haven 
  van Rotterdam, met een eigen grondwet en een eigen zelfvoorzienende 
  economie, met landbouw, medische zorg en een restaurant, maar ook een 
  werkplaats voor wapens - de vrijstaat had immers ook een leger nodig."

That's located in Rotterdam-West, far from being remote.
