Swedish activists prepared to stage women-only music festival

HELSINKI (AP) — A crowdfunding effort to organize a ladies just music celebration in Sweden as a reaction to detailed assaults and rapes at past celebrations in the Nordic nation has surpassed its objective.

The Kickstarter site page on Monday indicated gifts from more than 3,300 individuals worth 533,000 Swedish kronor ($66,000) to set up the Statement Festival one year from now as a message against sexual manhandle.

Swedish comic Emma Knyckare said she thought of the thought subsequent to catching wind of the cancelation of one year from now’s Bravalla Festival because of a few detailed rapes this year at Sweden’s greatest music celebration.

Coordinators said setting for the sans male, two-day celebration next summer was not yet clear but rather “thousands” are relied upon to go to hear every single female act.
