Pussy Riots in actionRoskilde Festival are generally about music and fun, but there is actually a more serious part of the Roskilde Festival. Therefore Pussy Riot has been invited to this year’s Roskilde Festival. They are going to talk about their case and their activist actions.

Friday, July 4th at 17:30 enter the two previously imprisoned members Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alyokhina up at the Gloria stage to highlight their newly founded organization ‘Zona Prava’ (Rights zone), which aims to monitor detention conditions for prisoners in Russian prisons and focus on the suppression of human rights, writes the Roskilde Festival in a statement.

It is actually very natural that Roskilde Festvial supports the activists, because it has a long tradition for focusing on human rights. The festival spokeswoman Christina Bilde tells, that they are very happy that Nadya and Masha from Pussy Riot has decided to accept our invitation to visit the festival.

The two artists and political activists have gained some personal experiences where they have been deprived of their artistic freedom and civil rights. The kind of relationship can be difficult to understand in a safe and secure society like Denmark. But all the more reason for us to draw attention to the seriousness of the situation may be beyond our borders – Christina continues.

300000 DKK/ 55000 USD will be donated from the Roskile Festival to the newly formed orginization.
