After a rape has been reported during the ongoing festival, next year's Bråvalla Festival will be cancelled, the festival announced in a press release.
"After Friday's festival, a rape was reported in the festival area and police are investigating what has happened. Several sexual assaults have been reported. There are no words for how incredibly sad we are over this and we want to apologise and condemn it in the most serious way. It's not okay and we do not accept it at our festival," writes the organizer FKP Scorpio Sweden in a press release.
- I've had enough. Violence kills the festival experience, the love of music and, above all, people are injured. One is too much, says Folkert Koopmans, the founder of the Bråvalla Festival, Sweden's largest music festival.
In addition to Friday night's suspected rape in the audience in front of the stage during Håkan Hellström's concert, eleven cases of sexual assaults were reported, according to the police.
