Way Out West, the scenically attractive Swedish festival, welcomes artists from the worlds of rock, pop, urban and electro into its idyllic parkland setting in south west Gothenburg. 

Spread over five stages, a huge variety of food stalls, bars and a duck-filled lake, festival-goers spend their days kicking back in the sun, before spilling out into the city's bars and clubs for the infamous Stay Out West afterparties.

Way Out West isn't just about music though, with the festival also playing host to film screenings, art exhibitions and lectures to feed your minds as you recapture your energy before the party starts again.

Almost 150 hectres, the huge, lush park of Slottsskogen in the south west of Gothenburg is home to several large ponds and lakes alongside 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.
