While Way Out West, Oya, and Flow each offer a unique experience, but the overlapping dates, preferred musical genres, and (relatively) close proximity mean that artists usually book more than one - if not all - of the festivals.
It thus comes as no surprise that Outkast will be headlining literally every one of the Scandinavian festivals this year, in addition to Roskilde Festival earlier in the summer.
Denmark's Roskilde Festival (June 29-July 6) will be first, followed by the overlapping Oya (Norway, August 5-9), Way Out West (Sweden, August 7-9), and Flow (Finland, August 8-10) festivals.
Roskilde Festival has also confirmed Chance the Rapper to join its impressive lineup, with headliners Damon Albarn, Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Psyched Up Janis, Interpol, Moderat, Major Lazer, Rob Zombie, Trentemoller, and Deerhunter. Scroll down to check out the full lineup so far. Tickets are on sale now.
Outkast will headline Flow Festival alongside The National, Janelle Monáe, Die Antwoord, and DARKSIDE. Blood Orange, Charli XCX, Slowdive, Mac DeMarco, Kavinsky, and Bonobo are also among the festival's first round of confirmed acts. Passes to Flow have just gone on sale; grab them while they're still available.
If you're trying to get a four-country Outkast fix, Way Out West passes are also on sale, as well as passes to Oya. Outkast eurotrip, anyone?
