With Stereophonics, Ne-Yo, Jess Glynne and Travis all set to perform on the Rock, the Gibraltar Music Festival has just added a flurry of top artists, including HEATHER SMALL (The Voice of M People), who will belt out hits like ‘Proud’, 'Moving On Up' and 'How Can I Love You More?'.

Last weekend Way Out West pulled out all the stops for its 10th anniversary welcoming over 33,000 fans a day descended upon the festival each day for its most successful outing to date, with a record number of visitors!

Armed with arguably one of Europe's most impressive musical line-ups, it was business as usual for Sweden's Way Out West. Known for booking talent from both sides of the Atlantic, this year's festival played host to three days of unforgettable performances from legends and rising stars. The first day saw revered heavyweights DAUGHTER, M83, CHVRCHES, THE LAST SHADOW PUPPETS and Gothenburg's ANNA VON HAUSSWOLF set the bar, while former Smith's frontman MORRISSEY delivered a world-class performance. His voice just as strong as ever, the musical icon was backed by harrowing visuals of police brutality for Ganglord and animal slaughter for Meat Is Murder, an apt song choice in the meat and dairy-free setting of Way Out West.
