Swedish comedian, Emma Knyckare in response to recent rape and sexual assault claims at festivals plans to host a Man-Free music festival next summer.
She came up with this after it emerged there were allegedly four rapes and 23 sexual assaults that took place at Sweden’s biggest music festival Bravalla last month.
According to her tweet, she said;
“What do you think about putting together a really cool festival where only non-men are welcome?”
She confirmed on Instagram this week that she would be organising a women’s only festival next Summer, after gaining a lot of support from women reaching out;
“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.”
