On its debut, the festival was unanimously hailed as the best event in Sweden by both audience and critics and sold out well in advance. This three-day, multi-genre festival is located in the idyllic park of Slottsskogen, the leafy and lush heart of Gothenburg. In a green and intimate setting, the common denominator is quality music. From here, pretty much everything in the city is within walking distance, and if your legs are tired there’s always trams, buses and boats to get you where you want in no time.
All of this becomes evident when the Slottsskogen area closes down for the night and the festivities continue in venues around the city as a part of the unique club concept, Stay Out West (which is included in the 18+ festival ticket). Long into the early hours, you can see upcoming artists and established favourites in an intimate setting. Stay Out West has an age limit of 18+ and first come, first served applies for all the venues.
