In the last days of July, approximately 230 participants plus 270 volunteers and workshop leaders entered the alternate world of tantra at the Ängsbacka course plaza outside Molkom in Värmland.

After the festival, more than a hundred people at the site tested positive for the covid-19 virus. The Tantra festival is ridiculed all over the country. Norway is on the Värmland red list due to increased infection rates. The media in the UK, Switzerland and France are suddenly writing about Molcom.
