 is a club festival in Gothenburg happening on the first weekend of December. Our live program consists of 40+ shows with bands/artists from all over happening in 10 venues within walking distance from each other. Everybody, anybody interested in music is welcome to be part of it. And oh, we're also inviting folks working the international indie circuit for an intimate music conference with amazing networking opportunities.

The event is produced by Westside Music Swedena small company shouting about the (indie) music community, the businesses and the artists, from Gothenburg and the region of Västra Götaland. Formed as a platform Westside is built on 49 partners all active in the world of indie and we firmly believe it's better to break new ground instead of breaking your back. Let's work together. 


"Another stellar effort from Viva Sounds, a festival that continues to punch well above its weight."
