Way Out West takes a wild collection of rock, pop, urban and electro stars and hosts them all in a beautiful, intimate setting.

Together with the evening concept Stay Out West, this unique festival lights up the musical calendar in Gothenburg – a city which was crying out for an event like this until its inception in 2007.

And having grown and developed year upon year since then, Way Out West is now one of the most respected festivals in Scandinavia.

The beautiful Slottsskogen is a huge, luscious park space in the south-west of Gothenburg city centre.

The park is almost 150 hectares in size, and contains several large ponds and lakes, as well as spacious open grassland.


Address

Slottsskogen, Gothenburg, 41319, Sweden

FAQs

Göteborg Landvetter Airport is east of the city centre, with the easiest way into Gothenburg being the Flygbussarna bus service. Buses depart three times per hour, take just under half an hour and cost 7k KR (roughly €8).

The Slottsskogen can be reached by a 15-minute tram from the city centre. Lines 1, 2 and 7 depart from Göteborg Brunnsparken every five minutes, and the Göteborg Botaniska Trädgården stop is at the south end of the park.

Way Out West starts at 12:00 on Thursday 13 August and continues until late on the night of Saturday 15.
