Way Out West Festival 2013


Our Malmö, Sweden-based photographer Ian Pearce (above) hit up this year’s Way Out West Festivalundoubtedly the Scandanavian country’s best annual showcase of musical and culture.

Having took place in Göteborg from 8-10 August, this year’s line-up was something else altogether. Headlined by Neil Young and Crazy Horse, the bill featured everyone from The Knife and Godspeed You! Black Emperor to Haim and Public Enemy.
