For twelve years, the multifaceted festival Way Out West – that attracts visitors from all over Sweden and large parts of the rest of the world – has filled Gothenburg and Slottsskogen with three days of music, festivities and culture. The programme includes the biggest stars in the world, the hottest newcomers, film premieres, challenging conversations, award-winning vegetarian food and a robust club programme called ‘Stay Out West’ that takes place at night in central Gothenburg.
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.
