Swedish Music Festival Bans Men Until They โ€œLearn How To Behave Themselvesโ€

A new Swedish rock music festival has decided that it will be female-only after numerous reports of sexual assaults at other festivals. The festival is being organized by Swedish radio presenter and comedian Emma Knyckare after it was announced that Brรฅvalla, Sweden’s largest festival, would not be taking place next year after four rapes and 23 sexual assaults were reported to police at this year’s event.

Speaking on the festival, Knyckare said:

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

This announcement followed a tweet where she said:

“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?”

What do you think, is this something that you could see catching on?
