There were also a record number of drug arrests at the music festival in the Swedish town of Emmaboda.

COPS say four teenage girls were raped and 11 women sexually abused at a drug-riddled music festival in the Swedish town of Emmaboda.

A police report released on Sunday revealed that four girls aged 15-17 reported being raped at the annual Emmaboda Music Festival, which runs from July 24-29.

The report added that 11 other women aged 18 and older suffered sexual abuse.

South Police Region spokeswoman Ewa-Gun Westford told Expressen: “There are six suspects for sexual attacks and one for rape.”

There were also 251 cases of drug use at the festival and 113 incidents of drug possession – twice the number recorded last year.

Westford said: “Several people who have worked at the festival have been using or have been dealing drugs.

“We will evaluate the efforts of the police together with the organizer and the municipality in order to set the conditions for this festival to continue.

“It’s not just about drugs but also about safety in the area.”

Expressen was unable to reach the festival’s organisers for comment.

Last month indie band Mumford and Sons vowed to boycott a Swedish music festival after dozens of young revellers claim they were sexually assaulted.

The chart toppers said they “were gutted” after reports of five rapes and more than a dozen sexual assaults at the Bravella festival in Norrkoping, where they headlined.

Mumford and Sons performed alongside Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Rammstein and Jack Black’s band Tenacious D.

It follows 32 alleged sexual assaults on girls as young as 12 at the Putte i Parken (Party in the Park) festival in Karlstad.
