With our first edition of the WHY NOT festival we will transform Göteborg’s harbor into a two-day electronic music festival. WHY NOT is a new concept in the tradition of Mythos and Secret Island Nation Festival. Together with Musikverket, Goethe-Institut Schweden and many others, WHY NOT offers a well-curated international line-up not only consisting of well-established headliners, but even promising rising talents and local heroes.
As Sweden’s main export industry seems to be mostly known for its pop music scene, we’ve decided it’s time to break that reputation and introduce some much needed diversity into the mix. There are so many techno talents in Sweden, and we do know the audience is there as well. But, sadly, there are only few options to party for real, especially on Sweden’s west coast. Thus, we want to claim our own underground techno and house scene, bring it out of the dark with the hopes of promoting the scene with a touch of that well-known “Berlin feeling” - but with a Swedish twist! So WHY NOT try and change that?! So here comes a sparkling new festival, dedicated to electronic underground music in Göteborg.
Save the Planet - It’s the Only One With Beer.
We believe in practicing what you preach. Apart from seeking a bit of self-indulgence, we also take moral aspects into consideration and seek to keep WHY NOT as eco-friendly as possible; reusing materials for the build-up, art and recycling, of course. You can expect an eclectic side-program, nerdy art and some quite surprising deco-efforts.
Let the Swedish festival summer end with a grand final! Indulge your senses and come dance with us! Most welcome, Your WHY NOT team
