Gothenburg is gearing up for this year’s music festival called WAY OUT WEST 2019. The three day musical event will take place in the park and woods at Slottsskogen by Linneplatsen. The city’s billboards and advertising spaces are filled with the adverts of the event.
SLOTTSKOGEN: At the venue in the greens of grass and trees of Slottsskogen, there will be five stages for the musical performances from early day to late evening. ‘Slottsskogen is the mother of all festival sites’ says the festival organizers. ‘The world’s best festival site? At least one of them. Slottsskogen, the lung of Gothenburg, is a lush forested park in the heart of the city. The unique site makes Way Out West the urban yet idyllic event that it is. At the festival site, with an endless supply of nooks and crannies, there’s always more to discover, whether it’s the wide range of musical acts you may never have heard of before, a screening of film premiere, world class vegetarian food or great places to hang. Flamingo, Azalea, Linné, Dungen and Höjden. Five stages packed with handpicked quality performances.’

WAY Out West festival is promising to come ‘with a food offering out of the ordinary. Slottsskogen will be full of food trucks and small establishments with tasty bites – evertything vegitarian with a large vegan offering. Have a classic Smålands roll, a juicy burger or enjoy a seated four course menu at the Michelin-starred resturant Agrikultur. Way Out West has something to suit all tastes.
‘The festival is vegetarian and has been completely meat free and largely dairy free since 2012 and has been certified in accordance with ISO 20121 since 2013, a testament to the festival’s sustainability efforts, which have seen it reduce its carbon footprint year-by-year.’
