On the amusement park's smaller stage, four female acts have currently been presented, a total of nine women. On the main stage, all 14 acts are male, and a total of 27 men are there.

In social media, sharp criticism is directed at the uneven gender distribution.

"I understand that you might get upset when you see what the distribution looks like now. But I want you to wait, because we haven't released our entire concert schedule yet and we have many artists left, both male and female, says Annika Troselius, head of information at Gröna Lund in Stockholm.

Will book more artists

She believes that Grönan Live has tried to book several female artists without success and that there has been fierce competition between the bookings of female touring artists.

Can you understand the criticism?

"We are obviously self-critical in the sense that we have to work harder on these issues.

Correction: An earlier version of this article stated the wrong number of acts booked.
