Raindancing at Way Out West

Despite being completely drenched in rain and mud, hobby-ravers, fomo-moms and spray tanned social media influencers happily danced and chased pokémons.

This weekend, Swedish music festival Way Out West celebrated its ten year anniversary. Four years ago the festival went completely vegetarian, only to go full-on vegan this year. As if saving the planet one falafel at a time wasn't enough, the festival also wanted its attendees to rethink their alcohol consumption by limiting its alcoholic beverage sales and widening the selection of non-alcoholic drinks.

This year's edition was not only the perfect place for lovers of animals and mental clarity, but also for lovers of ponchos. No one could have guessed that a place with so many sober people could get this wet.
