Way Out West

If we’re comparing the many summer music festivals of the world using the simple metric of musical diversity, I daresay that the 2016 edition of Way Out West is far ahead of the pack.

This Gothenburg, Sweden festival, happening from August 11th through the 13th has a staggering range of artists arriving to play one of their three stages. Space jazz courtesy of Kamasi Washington, cut-and-paste jams from The Avalanches, futuristic funk from the queen Grace Jones, and the politicized post-punk of PJ Harvey…all are represented, as is a wealth of electronic music, hip-hop, rock, and punk acts from around the world. I’m getting all tingly just thinking about it.
