Former frontman of The Smiths, and solo superstar Morrissey jets to Way Out West in August. The outspoken star is one of the most iconic lyricists of his generation, and one of the most fascinating artists to ever come out of the British music scene. With a slew of revered studio albums under his belt, including Viva Hate, Bona Dog, Kill Uncle and Your Arsenal along with his acclaimed 10th studio album World Peace Is None of Your Business, Way Out West fans are in for a very special show this summer.

Like its new musical addition, Morrissey, Way Out West Festival focuses on environmental issues–and was the first festival in Sweden to become KRAV-certified. Citing environmental reasons, the festival announced during the 2012 festival season that all food served to artists, staff and visitors during the festival would be vegetarian. This year the festival will also eliminate milk, offering oat substitutes as a welcome alternative in pioneering steps to save our planet.
Way Out West will be returning to its home in Slottskogen Park from 11th – 13th of August for one of Europe’s biggest celebrations of music. Tickets are now on sale for 2016, with weekend tickets costing around £168 as well as a number of reduced price tickets on sale every month, incrementally increasing by £10 each month.
