Swedish comedian Emma Knyckare is organising a “man-free” music festival in Sweden in response to rape and sexual assault claims at festivals.
The idea came after a number of sexual offences at Sweden’s biggest music festival “Bravalla”.
Knyckare floated the idea in a tweet at the weekend.
“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.
A day after her initial tweet, she confirmed plans for the event to go ahead, saying: “Sweden’s first man-free rock festival will see the light next summer”.
