Way Out West has filled the city park Slottsskogen with music, film, talks and fantastic vegetarian food since 2007. The three-day festival attracts visitors from all over the world, and continues to surprise us every year.

In 2024, the line-up includes artists like Fred Again.., Queens of the Stone Age, PJ Harvey, Pulp, Icona Pop, The National and Susanne Sundfør. The concerts take place both in Slottsskogen and on live stages around Gothenburg as part of the unique Stay Out West club concept. Read more at wayoutwest.se.

Climate talks and vegetarian food

Way Out West has an ambitious sustainability work and all food served has been vegetarian since 2012. There are food options for all tastes, from pop-up restaurants with star chefs to loads of food trucks and local eateries moving into the area. Read more about the food selection at wayoutwest.se.
