Celebrating it’s 10th anniversary in 2017, Sweden’s premier alternative music festival takes over Slottskogen, Gothenburg’s largest park in every August.

Way Out West showcases numerous world-class artists of rock, pop, urban and electronic music. Just to give you a hint of what you can expect, Pet Shop Boys, Ellie Goulding, Kygo, FLorence + The Machine, Neil Young, Disclosure and Kendrick Lamar have all graced the WOW stages.

In addition to the wonderful musical lineup, WOW also features independent film screenings, lectures, art exhibitions and completely vegetarian food policy, demonstrating the festival's keenness to promote sustainability.

Don’t worry when the festival closes for the night, numerous clubs and bars open their doors around Gothenburg for late night-owls as part of the Stay Out West after party program.

Check out the festival that has been chosen by MTV's as the ‘Most Innovative Festival’!
