Prince, Kanye West to somehow share stage at Swedish festival Way Out West
We just received word that Prince will be joining the lineup for this summer's Way Out West festival in Gothenburg, Sweden, which already includes -- wait for it -- Kanye West, Pulp, Robyn, Fleet Foxes, Janelle Monae, Wiz Khalifa, the Jayhawks, Explosions In The Sky, James Blake, oh my god, where do we buy tickets, do I really need this computer or could I sell it for Swedish airfare?
The festival is being held in a park called Slottskogen, which is reportedly "made up of large areas of grassland, small hills, a forest and enclosed pastures with Nordic animals such as elk." Sigh.
Now, the all-important question: In a battle of pop superstardom, who will headline: Prince or Kanye? And isn't the chance to see one of them open for the other -- or one of them forced to open for anyone, really -- worth at least a couple thousand Swedish kronor?
