Where do I even begin? If you haven't been to Way Out West yet, do yourself a favor and slap yourself in the face while evaluating your life and purpose. Apart from Tomorrowland, Way Out West is thee festival to be at. The lineup is average, the beer is expensive, festival food and regulations are horrendous, alcohol prohibition is extreme in the Nazi sense BUT the scenery is amazing! Imagine a conference of only beautiful people spanning over 4 days filled with expensive alcohol, late nights and strobe lights. Sure we enjoyed great acts and performances like Common, Miike Snow, Florence + the machine, De La Soul, Bon Iver, Gnucci, Spoek Mathambo and others but the highlight is the amazing talent. I'm sure that even if you were to stay in the same hotel as all the Miss Universe contestants, you still wouldn't be able to match the superior beauty and talent Göteborg offers during Way Out West
Everyone everywhere is sporting sunglasses but not necessarily to protect their eyes. Oh no my friend, this is for scouting or self-preservation reasons. Depending on your relationship status, one of those two options will suit you just fine. Then again, can your spouse/partner really be pissed at you for admiring the beauty around? In the wise words of a great French man I know "c'est bon ca". The aforementioned French man literally lost his mind when he saw all the stunning ladies in the city
In church you always hear about how beautiful heaven and paradise is. How there is only lovely people, everyone is young, healthy and you feast forever. Well Way Out West is heaven because all of your dreams come true and the streets are lined with gold!
I enjoyed it so much that the sad reality only struck me as I got on the train back home. I was still in party mode and thought that all the other passengers were too, besides, they still had their festival tags on. To my (not so surprised) amusement, they weren't. For this was the train back to Stockholm. Back to the beautiful unfriendly capital
