Way Out West’s unique city based format taps into Gothenburg’s thriving music scene, with performances at some of the best venues the city has to offer. From Thursday evening to Saturday night (or Sunday morning if you can last that long) the city’s rock clubs, nightclubs, churches, theaters and cultural centers will showcase both breaking and more established acts as part of the festival’s club concept Stay Out West.
Bands playing the club nights will not be appearing on the stages at the festival site. A 3-day festival pass is valid for admittance for all Stay Out West shows, Thursday through Saturday, but does not guarantee entrance. Please note that the capacities of the venues is limited and many of these shows will be filled to capacity early, so if there is a certain band you want to see try to get there early. It will not be possible to buy separate tickets for club gigs, neither in advance nor at the door. Make sure you exchange your ticket for a festival wristband before visiting any of the clubs, as paper tickets are not valid for entrance.
All club venues with the exception of Annedalskyrkan have an age limit of 18 years (this is due to Swedish liquor laws). The age limit at Annedalskrykan is 13 years (a 3-day youth wristband will gain you admittance). Show times and venues will be released closer to the festival and are subject to change.
