It had been billed as the worlds "first major music festival for women, non-binary and transgender" people.

The event, created after a string of rapes and sexual assaults committed at two of Sweden's largest festivals, was led by a collection of women are seeking change and launched in August.

Statement festival, which was held in Gothenburg, was organised by Swedish comedian Emma Knyckare in response to rape and sexual assault claims at festivals.

On Monday, however, Sweden's Discrimination Ombudsman found that its description of the event as "man-free" was "an infringement of discrimination law".

"It is important to point out what an infringement is. These are the statements made before the festival, what they wrote on their website", DO Class Lundstedt said in a statement. "Still, we haven't been able to prove that someone would have been discriminated against in connection with the implementation or that someone would have been rejected". The organizers responded: "It's sad that what 5,000 women, non-binaries, and transgender [people] experienced as a life-changing festival made a few cis men lose it completely".

'Otherwise, we have no comments - we are busy changing the world'.

She suggested the idea of the festival after news emerged that claimed there had been four rapes and 23 sexual assaults at Bravalla, Sweden's biggest music festival, in June 2017.

The event, called Statement, was held in the city of Gothenburg, but the country's discrimination ombudsman said it was illegal.

It is believed another woman, who filled a report, said she was forced against her will to have sex with a man after she changed her mind.

"Certain men ... apparently can not behave. So we are looking forward to trying to correct this", Lundstedt said, addressing the issue.

But allegations of widespread sexual abuses and the subsequent birth of the #MeToo movement consolidated their belief that a "safe space" was needed and that the festival would remain so "until all men learn how to behave themselves".

Ironically, the festival couldn't amputate the "problematic" part of society altogether - it turned out numerous necessary technicians, band members and workers were men.
