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

For over a decade, 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.

The programme includes the biggest stars in the world, the hottest newcomers, film premieres, challenging conversations, great vegetarian food and a robust club programme called “Stay Out West” that takes place at night in central Gothenburg.

Since Way Out West started in 2007, the festival has been blessed with stars such as Prince, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Florence + The Machine, Neil Young, M.I.A., Alicia Keys, Stormzy, Frank Ocean, Robyn, The xx, Patti Smith, Solange and The Cure, just to name a few.
