Sunshine, a new audience record and a Slottsskogen full of beautiful people. Way Out West 2022 became so much more than we ever dreamed to hope for. From the bottom of our hearts – thank you so much for making Way Out West 2022 into one of the best editions of the festival ever, and a magnificent return after two years of total darkness.


At the time of writing, Thåström has just finished his massive closing set at Flamingo, and he is just one of many musical highlights this year. Tame Impalas mind blowing light show, Nick Cave’s charisma, First Aid Kit’s harmonies, The energy during Fred again.., Jamie xx’s dance bonanza, Daniela Rathana’s dance moves, Burna Boy’s star quality, Girl in Red’s charm and Little Simz – just wow. 2022 will never be forgotten. Never ever.


Even though we’re not quite ready to leave Way Out West 2022 yet, we still want to announce that we will be back in Slottsskogen Aug 10-12 next year. A limited amount of very reasonably priced Blind Bird tickets to Way Out West 2023 go on sale tomorrow, Sunday at 11.00 and will be available for two weeks. Artists and more info will follow during autumn. Go get em’!


Once again – thank you thank you thank you. What came next did become marvelous in the end.


See you in 2023 <3
