is a club festival in Gothenburg happening on the first weekend of December. The live program 2023 consists of 60+ shows with 50 bands/artists from all over happening in 12 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 55 partners all active in the world of indie. We firmly believe it's better to work together to break new ground vs working alone and be miserable. Get with it. 


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