Kendrick Lamar, J Hus, and Jorja Smith join Way Out West

22 January 2018, 09:56 | Written by Laurence Day

Swedish festival Way Out West has added some major names, with groundbreaking rapper Kendrick Lamar topping the list.

BRITs Critics' Choice winner Jorja Smith and Common sense star J Hus have also joined the bill.

Arcade Fire, Lykke Li, Grizzly Bear, Brockhampton, Noname, and Mura Masa are already set to play the twelfth edition of the Gothenburg-based shindig, which last year saw performances from Frank Ocean, The xx, Lana Del Rey, and lots more.

"We create the festival that we would like to visit ourselves, and one that we don’t think exists anywhere else in the world," explains the fest's Ola Broquist. "Our continued investment in providing a diverse but totally vegetarian food offering will win over even the most dubious."

As well as totally vegetarian grub, Way Out West visitors can expect a film lineup and a range of talks and conversations.

Way Out West 2018 takes place (mostly) at Slottsskogen, Gothenburg between 9-11 August. Get your tickets now.
