Mumford And Sons boycott Swedish festival over sexual assault reports (7girls raped-5 under 15) Time for open carry in Europe

Folk-rock band Mumford & Sons have said they will no longer play at Bravalla music festival in Sweden, after a “disgustingly high” number of sexual assaults were reported at the event.

Over the three-day festival, 17 women reported incidents of sexual assault at the event in Norrkoping. The band described the reports as “hideous.”

Five of those cases were rapes, and three of the victims were under 15, with the majority of victims under 18.

The group made the announcement in a Facebook post after the concert. “We are appalled to hear what happened at the Bravalla Festival last weekend,” it read. “Festivals are a celebration of music and people, a place to let go and feel safe doing so. We’re gutted by these hideous reports.”

“We won’t play at this festival again until we’ve had assurances from the police and organizers that they’re doing something to combat what appears to be a disgustingly high rate of reported sexual violence,” they added.
