Sweden? YES! Way Out West? No.

There's been lots of speculation whether or not Arcade Fire will play Way Out West in Gothenburg, Sweden following the confirmation from Arcade Fire's manager Scott Rodger the band is coming to Sweden and that an announcement should be made sometime early this week. Well, tomorrow Way Out West are announcing the latest batch of bands and Arcade Fire are NOT among them.

This is so awesome I don't know what to do with myself because this should mean Arcade Fire are going to do a proper outdoor show (not a festival show) somewhere in Sweden. Stockholm has been ruled out.

Lately they have been looking at outdoor parks, city squares and fields in other countries where about 2-3,000 people could rock out. Would imagine something like that would be the case here too.

Bring on the announcement! Will probably happen when the new website is relaunched.

Dalhalla?

The source for this is the Way Out West organizers themselves.

Very hard to say where they will play. I've got no clue, just guesses.

Oh man..! This is like the day before christmas... I'm so excited and kinda nervous in a good way. Dalhalla would be cool, but i'm doubting they'll play there, and if they would be able to sell that place out. But, no one knows atm. It's gonna be awesome to see them somewhere else than Stockholm though, and i'm looking forward to go on a trip in "sommarsverige" to see them =)

Do you still think it's gonna be an august date?
