Sweden’s Way Out West confirms 11 new acts for 2024

Way Out West Festival Sweden 2024

With less than two months left until Way Out West takes over Slottsskogen in Gothenburg from August 8th – 10th, it’s time to announce new artists. Today’s release includes 11 new acts that will perform both in Slottsskogen and in the club program Stay Out West. Among them are the Swedish streaming sensation ARC DE SOLEIL, dance-pop duo ICONA POP, former The Knife member OLOF DREIJER accompanied by experienced percussionist DIVA CRUZ and multi-artist ALBA AUGUST.

Additionally, the festival has released its schedule for Slottsskogen today. FRED AGAIN.. will perform in the August night, THE SMILE at dusk and TEMS in the afternoon sun!

Besides the aforementioned, there are, of course, additional gems. AYLA has long toured with CLEO and simultaneously released her own music – this fall, her highly anticipated new album Pussel will be released. MRCY is a British duo that blends the warmth and consciousness of Marvin Gaye with influences from new talents like SAULT or Anderson. Paak. This is the future, but here and now. Stella Explorer’s musical landscape is a mix of ambient pop and dark rhythms that together create a loosely connected landscape with a clear red thread. Earlier this year, Absolute Music 2/5 was released, which unites and contextualizes her previous works in the best possible way.

NEW ACTS IN TODAY’S ANNOUNCEMENT:

Arc De Soleil / Stella Explorer Mrcy [UK] / Olof Dreijer & Diva Cruz / Alba August / Icona Pop / Joshua Idehen [UK] / Diane Emerita / Jackie Mere / Full Body 2 [US] / Ayla
