Just nu avslutar Alicia Keys och Disclosure festivalen på varsin scen inför världens bästa publik. De avslutar tre dagar som över 1200 personer jobbat hårt och grymt med. De avslutar en festival som nu kan presentera publikrekord med 27 752 besökare. TACK!
Det har varit otroligt roliga dagar som inte bara innehållit fantastiska spelningar med The Knife, Kendrick Lamar, Angel Haze, Håkan Hellström, Tame Impala, Beach House, Bat For Lashes, Grimes, Haim, Cat Power och James Blake för att nämna några. Utan även otroligt lyckade filmvisningar, konstutställningar, föreläsningar, music hack, fester och fina minnen vi kommer vårda för evigt. Väl mött.
Ses i natten. Nu tar vi över klubbarna. Tack för i år!
This is a fantastic victory for everyone that's been struggling with this issue. For Omar and his musician, for Way Out West and above all the audience. This shows that you can correct a wrong.
We send a big thanks to everyone who has helped out this past week. We’ll see you in Slottskogen tomorrow!
Kristoffer Triumf will visit us twice during the weekend at the Way Out West Talks. On Friday at 12:30 he will lecture and 13:45 on Saturday, he's doing a live podcast with Mariam The Believer. p>

RFID is short for Radio Frequency Identification and means that all our festival bracelets will have a micro chip on them that has a unique digital signature for each festival goer. Intellitix, who are the world leader in RFID solutions for events, have developed this secure, safe and fraud-proof technology that brings with it a host of new possibilities. Among other things this means that those who choose to opt in will have a live link to social media and social networking sites during your time on the festival grounds. You will be able to share your experiences on Facebook, publish status updates and check in at the different gigs through “Live Click Stations” that can be found throughout Slottsskogen. There will also be photo stations and other fun stuff to explore.
Register for a chance to win prizes!
As extra motivation for you to register your wristband we will be giving away some pretty amazing prizes to a bunch of lucky winners. Among the items up for grabs are a Sony Xperia Tablet Z, Spotify Premium subscriptions and tickets to Way out West 2014. (There’s also a chance to watch Miguel’s gig from the stage on Friday (at the Azalea stage at 21:15.) The winner will be notified by e-mail and SMS on Friday at 7pm.)
How to register?
From Wednesday you will be able to pre-register your wristband at welcometo.wayoutwest.se . Once you’ve exchanged your paper ticket for a festival wristband all you need to do is visit the website, enter your information and you will be all linked up and ready to go. If you don’t want, or don’t have the ability, to pre-register, you can register at the Sony service center on the festival grounds. They will also be there throughout the festival if you have any questions or encounter any issues with your wristband.
Spotify & Way Out West – A match made in heaven
Activate your “smart wristband” and Spotify will pitch in and add to the advantages by keeping track of all the concerts you choose to see during the festival. All you need to do is check in by touching your wristband to one of the many check-in stations at each stage for each artist you watch. Spotify will then keep track of what gigs you’ve been to and at the end of each day send you a customized e-mail where you get artist profiles and the setlists in playlist form – ready to listen to and enjoy with Spotify – for the artists you saw. Set lists for all performers will also be gathered on the Way out West Spotify profile, so why not follow us right now? http://www.spotify.com/wayoutwest is the address.
FYI. the RFID chips are passive which means they are not tracking people..
We look forward to seeing you in Slottsskogen, more connected than ever before!
