When the last tone is played in Slottsskogen and the area becomes silent, the festival continues in venues all over central Gothenburg. It accelerates and moves on with concerts long into the morning hours under the Stay Out West flag. This is a chance to experience big artists on smaller stages with an atmosphere that feels like nothing else.

"Let the festival evening last forever – become one with Stay Out West"

Some venues are familiar from earlier years, but there is always a wind of change blowing. Bananpiren can now be regarded as a Way Out West classic and with its four stages the capacity is very welcoming. Here you’ll find a festival within a festival and a wonderful hub for people, party and different styles of music.


Stay Out West has an 18+ age limit and the program is included in the festival ticket. Some of the venues lie within walking distance from Slottsskogen. Others (Bananpiren for example) are a tram- or bus ride away. If you’re planning on spending lots of hours at Bananpiren during your Way Out West weekend, we recommend you to buy our Bus Wristband, either via or at the Info desk at the festival area.

When looking at our posters, you’ll find the Stay Out West acts in thin font, and the Slottsskogen acts in bold. It’s also listed under each artist bio here.
