wayoutwestfestival  Aug 8-10 2019. Gothenburg, Sweden. #wowgbg

A #favwowgig by artist @christiankjellvander who released his seventh solo album Wild Hxmans last year.

– It must be Slint back in 2014. To finally be able to see a band you never thought you’d get to experience in real life. Perhaps a reactionary choice, I know, but with Slint nothing’s really aged. It’s the same old boring guys playing their phenomenal riffs a bit too slow in front of an audience filled with other boring guys who all have or have had their own bands. There’s something beautiful about it. A subculture to marvel at.

Way Out West, and of course all other festivals and shows, wouldn’t exist without individuals such as Luckan. He’s the site crew chief and a living behind the scenes legend. For a number of reasons. One of them is that he’s simply the best. Luckan has done this since the mid-80s, all the huge and legendary events with everyone from The Rolling Stones to Madonna at Ullevi, Eriksberg, Stockholm Olympic Stadion and the rest. He’s a master of planning, has a great team of co-workers, is good at managing people and no matter the situation maintains a positive attitude. If you need to get something done, you call Luckan and you don’t only get that thing done – you get it done right. Which certainly helps when you put up 10 miles of fence and build a 90 hectare festival area in four days.

– I saw Capernaum (by Lebanese director Nadine Labaki) with my mum the other night, and it ripped my heart out – and was a little bit too much for my mum. So much misery and sadness, and so many gut punches, but there is also great warmth and humor – and two absolutely amazing child actors! I will remember little Zain Al Rafeea's eyes for a very, very long time, and feel even more lucky that I can tuck my daughter in to a nice, warm bed at night and put food on our table every day.

Five questions for Rasmus Arvidsson, lead singer in @avantgardet_bandet who’s playing Skövde Kulturhus tonight.
__________
An album you always return to?
– A Grand Don’t Come for Free by The Streets.
__________
Your best Gothenburg experience?
– Our first Stay Out West performance at Nefertiti in 2016. It coincided with me missing The Libertines, but I had a great view of when the announcement of their show being postponed turned up on the screens. That was great as well.
__________
Dream booking at Way Out West?
– A The Last Waltz type of gig with songs written and produced by @jockeahlund. Would have to be at least seven hours long though.
__________
One thing you’ve learned from being on the road you didn’t know before?
– That all places in Sweden look EXACTLY the same.
__________
Give us a tip!
– Treat music with the same amount of seriousness as literature and film.

This week the spotlight shines on Stay Out West venue Annedalskyrkan.
__________
The glorious Annedal Church gives the festival an air of history and splendour. To our delight, the venue, situated just outside the area as you head downtown, made a comeback last year as a Stay Out West hotspot after a few years absence. The building, a mix of Jugend and historicizing forms of Renaissance and Baroque as well as Romanesque and Gothic architecture, has hosted many classic Stay Out West performances with artists such as James Blake, Mazzy Star, Susanne Sundfør and Rhye. Gothenburg’s very own Anna von Hausswolff also experienced a breakthrough here in 2009.

– I have many pleasant music memories from Way Out West, but it was really cool to see Sleaford Mods rock Hisingen to pieces at Stay Out West in 2016. The venue there had a true punk atmosphere, why Sleaford Mods was a perfect match.

Trots att scenerna blivit större under resans gång kan Daniel Norgren fortfarande göra det där som alla musiker drömmer om, sjunga för alla men ändå bara just för dig. Idag släpptes singeln "Let Love Run The Game" och 19 april kommer nya albumet "Wooh Dang". Andra helgen i augusti gör Daniel Norgren sommarens enda festivalspelning på svensk mark. Platsen för detta är Slottssskogen och Way Out West.

We still have a long way to go regarding the equality of all human beings. That is a sad, but true, fact. Few have done more in Gothenburg for creating a permissive climate as West Pride, a free entry art and culture festival in the city primarily aimed at lgbtq-people and their allies – this year held June 12–16. The vision is to live in an equitable and inclusive world free from prejudice and discrimination. On a daily basis they work for a change in attitudes and to inspire a more open society. We have collaborated with West Pride on several projects over the years and the Way Out West organization is lgbtq-certified by West Pride.

– The Souvenir by Joanna Hogg is brand new, it won Sundance’s Grand Jury Prize, but at the same time it’s the perfect British 80s movie, an amalgam of Derek Jarman and early Stephen Frears, tight, touching and with a fantastic Honor Swinton Byrne – yes, mom is famous – in the leading role. To be shown in cinemas later this year.
