Swedish event expands...

Part of a new wave of festivals putting Scandinavia on the map, Way Out West is continuing to impress.

This year already possesses a bumper crop, with organisers now confirming a slot from seminal shoegaze group Slowdive.

Much loved, the band's return this year sparked a wave of nostalgia from fans with tickets for their London comeback show selling out within three minutes.

Playing a handful of festivals this summer, Slowdive will fly out to Way Out West for a no doubt special set.

Elsewhere, Conor Oberst will return to Sweden for a Way Out West performance, while Mapei is also due to perform.

Don't forget, the festival's line up also includes OutKast, Queens Of The Stone Age, The National, Brody Dalle and many more.

Way Out West runs between August 7th - 9th.
