Thåström is always in motion. That’s been the case for over four decades now. Always curious, always relevant, and always with an absolute presence.


In a career full of milestones, 2022 feels like a record year. During the spring he toured his latest album ‘Dom som skiner’ throughout the Nordics, a tour that become his biggest so far and was crowned with big shows at Avicii Arena, Scandinavium and Malmö Arena. The tour was almost completely sold out and the reviews were raving across the board.


Thåström isn’t touring this summer, but you can still see him as a Special Guest for The Rolling Stones, a band he’s always loved, at Friends Arena in July. Recently we also received the news that he’ll be immortalized as a cartoon next another one of the world’s most respected artists – Nick Cave. You can easily say that Thåström is better, bigger, and more vital than ever before. And then we’re talking about an artist that has fronted both Ebba Grön and Imperiet


We’re proud and honored to be able to welcome Thåström to Way Out West, to in a grand manor both finish off his own summer and the first Way Out West in two years. The scene will be the festival’s biggest stage Flamingo on its final day. Rarely has an artist felt so perfectly placed anywhere.


Thåström is set to close the festival on Saturday August 13th.
