The Way Out West festival takes place in Gothenburg's main park, Slottsskogen, in the middle of August each year.

Way Out West also taps into Gothenburg’s thriving music scene, lining up many additional artists at various clubs in Gothenburg during the festival weekend.

The Way Out West music festival is only a few years old but has already been called one of the best festivals in Europe. Add to this the coinciding Gothenburg culture festival and those mid-August days in Gothenburg promise to be extraordinary.

An environmentally-friendly event, Way Out West is protective of the park environment, individual safety - and even offers organic foods, including fresh seafood!

It can get quite pricey, though. Alone the price of a ticket for the entire festival - with admission to all main events in the park - costs approximately SEK 1400 / EUR 150. If you want to spend less, just pick a couple of your favorite artists and check out the off-site performances in the city.

The upcoming Way Out West festival dates as well as tickets are available on the official website of this event.
