Beth Ditto, Vince Staples and Migos are headed to Way Out West

Actress and more are also added to the line-up for the Swedish bonanza in August.

A handful of new additions have just been added to the line-up for this year’s Way Out West in August.

Joining the bill is Beth Ditto, who’ll be bringing new anthems from her upcoming album ‘Fake Sugar’ to the event. She’s accompanied (well, not literally) by rapper Vince Staples and ‘Bad and Boujee’ crew Migos. British glitch-loving producer Actress and ethereal electronic musician Kelly Lee Owens are also on the bill. There’s also a slew of Scandinavian talent, with Anna of the North, Rhys, Sarah Klang and more set for the fest.

The new additions join a line up that already includes Lana Del Rey, The xx, Pixies Angel Olsen, Perfume Genius, Young Thug, London Grammar and more. So yep, shaping up nicely then!

Way Out West gets underway between 10th-12th August in Gothenburg and tickets are on sale now.
