    Even though there is almost no difference between these two words. I would say that "из-за" used more often. But you can find "вследствие" used mostly in formal writing.
    Examples:
    Я плохо спал, из-за этого у меня болит голова.
    Из-за тебя мы опоздали на поезд ! Не из-за меня, а из-за моего сломавшегося будильника!
    Ты не проверил свой будильник, вследствие чего ты проспал.
    Вследствие вышесказанного, я отказываюсь принимать в этом участие.

    mostly stylistic when saying about situation, but when you say about subject position you have to use из-за.
    Из-за горы показался город. the city has been shown from behind a mountain
