SWEDES DO IT BETTER

Way Out West, Sweden’s Chicest Music Festival, is a Fashion and Music Utopia

Kimberley Ross

Neighboring a zoo and a botanical garden, Gothenberg, Sweden’s Way Out West music festival is something of a lush utopia, far away from New York’s The Meadows festival (in the parking lot outside Citi Field) or the Bahamas’s Fyre Festival (in your imagination). Audiences were blessed by sets from Perfume Genius, Vince Staples, Lana Del Rey, and Frank Ocean, who arrived with a full string ensemble to accompany his performance—though Brad Pitt was notably absent from the festivities this time. Attendees didn’t disappoint, either, arriving in their best Gucci, Off-White, and Balenciaga, because nobody told these Swedes designer digs might not fare so well on festival grounds. But this is Way Out West, so the usual rules probably don’t apply, anyway. See all the most gorgeous sights and killer looks from Sweden’s chicest festival, here.
