Sexual Assault: Sweden Is Getting a Man-Free Music Festival ‘Until Men Learn to Behave’

Sweden’s music festival scene has been blighted by a string of sexual assault allegations, with a major festival cancelling over the issue. On Saturday, the country’s largest festival, Bråvalla, announced it would not be holding an event in 2018, after police said they had received reports of four rapes and 23 sexual assaults following this year’s outing.

Now, a comedian from the country thinks she has the answer: a man-free music festival.

Emma Knyckare, a Swedish comedy performer and radio presenter, floated the idea in a tweet at the weekend, The Local reported.

“What do you think about putting together a really cool festival where only non-men are welcome, that we’ll run until ALL men have learned how to behave themselves?” she wrote.

Knyckare subsequently confirmed via her Instagram account that she’d gained enough support to get plans in place for a festival in 2018.

“Sweden’s first man-free rock festival will see the light next summer,” she said. “In the coming days I’ll bring together a solid group of talented organizers and project leaders to form the festival organizers, then you’ll hear from everyone again when it’s time to move forward.”

As well as Bråvalla…
