Lykke Li disses Sweden at Glastonbury

Star has some harsh words for her homeland

Lykke Li took a pop at Sweden and the Glastonbury crowd during her set on the Park Stage today (June 28).

The star’s comments came after a lack of dancing in the audience.

Glastonbury is like Sweden because nobody is dancing. Why aren’t you dancing?” she asked.


Playing tracks from her debut album ‘Youth Novels’ – including ‘Breaking It Up’ and ‘Let It Fall’ – the singer played a high-energy set.

Before ‘Window Blues’, she asked if the crowd were “sick of love songs”, adding: “Enough of the love songs. This is a song about love, tainted love.”
