Way Out West 2024

One of Europe’s best festivals takes over Slottsskogen city park!

The music and film festival Way Out West – that attracts visitors from all over Sweden and large parts of the rest of the world – has filled Gothenburg and Slottsskogen city park with three days of music, festivities, and culture since 2007. The festival is a must for all music-loving, culturally oriented young minds.


The programme includes a line up of Swedish and international acclaimed stars, such as Fred Again.., Queens of the Stone Age, PJ Harvey, Pulp, Icona Pop, The National, and Susanne Sundfør. It also offers film premieres, great vegetarian food and a robust club programme called “Stay Out West” that takes place at night in central Gothenburg.


You can book tickets in all categories on the Way Out West website. Choose between one, two, or three days.
