Get married at Way Out West!

Last year, we had the honor of allowing three couples to tie the knot during Way Out West. Now we are pleased to announce that the opportunity to get married in Slottsskogen will be available again this year.

 

Do you and your partner have a special connection to Way Out West or any of the artists performing this year? Or maybe you’re simply two music lovers who wish to celebrate your love in an unconventional way? We now invite three couples to get married during this year’s festival, with one wedding ceremony to be held each day: Thursday August 8th, Friday August 9th, and Saturday August 10th. The chosen couples will receive one 1-Day Festival Ticket each, as well as 8 additional 1-Day Tickets for friends and family to attend the ceremony and festival. Scroll down to apply!

We encourage a diverse range of applicants in terms of geographical spread in Sweden, ethnic background, disabilities, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, religion, and music taste. We very much look forward to receiving your application!
