Way Out West 2022 Festival

Music festivals are a bit like expensive restaurants. Sure, they’re everywhere. But only a few are worth your time and money.

Al77 is determined to help you make the best of your finances and time. With the Summer music festivals upon, we’ve decided to focus on the best live events on offer.

This page will highlight the events we find most interesting and supply you with the necessary details.

Highlighted Festival: Way Out West 2023

Location: Gothenburg, Slottsskogen Source

Performers: Blur, Tove Lo, Devo, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Håkan Hellström

Price: 2,295 SEK

Info: Way Out Way Festival, hosted at an idyllic outdoor location in Slottsskogen, Gothenburg. It has quickly become one of the world’s favorite cultural celebrations, drawing music and art lovers of all nationalities to come to enjoy its diverse performances and creative displays.

I attended Way Out West 2022 and was generally impressed with its setup. There’s a bit of an “everything for everyone” attitude to booking the performers that may rub some people the wrong way. Still, the line-up always seems to include some well-known and up-and-coming performers that make it memorable.

Way Out West is typically attended by Swedes and people from Nordic countries. However, we recommend you travel to it regardless of your location.

Sziget Festival held anually in Hungary is one of the most treasured outdoor rock festivals in the whole of Europe. Historically, Sziget is known for playing host to some of the most important musical artists in alternative rock, punk, and even pop.
