Way out West Posted by on Aug 12, 2010 in Culture

One of the biggest Swedish live festival kicks off today in Gothenburg in Slottskogen. This event puts once again Gothenburg on the Nordic map because of its international guests. The lineup is usually very mixed and up-to-date. The only negativity is the price of the ticket (140 Euros for adults and 105 Euros for people under 18). That is of course for two days. The other thing is that you can´t be there two days in a row like at other festivals. Well, on the other hand I am not sure that I would stay anyhow, because I need my bed & shower every day. But it used to be fun putting up the tent for a few days when I was in my early twenties. If you want to know more about the artists attending click here

With the festival card you can also visit many clubs in the city. The range of clubs and what they offer increases every year. You have to be in time and be lucky if you want to squeeze yourself in these clubs. It can be quite frustrating to be at a packed place or push oneself through (trängas or knö sig). Knö sig it is typical city slang in Gothenburg by the way.

Have fun and don´t do drugs as Robyn and Dr. Alban sang for us in 2009. 😉
