Way Out West
Way Out West, a festival in Sweden’s second city, Gothenburg, is already known as one of the best music festivals in Europe despite being in only its fifth year.
For three days Gothenburg is home to the crème de la crème of national and international music. The line up for 2011 so far includes Prince, Kanye West, Pulp, Robyn, Fleet Foxes, Thåström, Explosions In The Sky, Janelle Monáe, Wiz Khalifa, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, The Jayhawks, Twin Shadow, The Avett Brothers and Warpaint.
Way Out West’s unique city based format taps into Gothenburg’s thriving music scenes, with performances at venues all over the city; rock clubs, nightclubs, churches, theaters and cultural centers are all used to showcase breaking and more established acts as part of the festivals club concept, Stay Out West.
Slottsskogen is the Gothenburgers favourite park: a wonderful green space in the heart of the city with large lawns, wooded areas, lakes, and even a zoo with elks, seals and penguins. Right in the city centre, it’s within walking distance of two of the city’s best-loved districts; the culturally diverse Linné and historic Haga, as well as a large selection of hotels and hostels in all price classes.
