The With Every Heartbeat hitmaker is hosting the inaugural Tekla festival in her native Stockholm in conjunction with tech giants Google and Spotify.

A statement describes the event as "a festival for girls, in which they get to sample different areas of future technology in what I believe will be a fun and imaginative environment".

The day is aimed at females aged 11 to 18 and will be held at Sweden's KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

In 2013, Robyn was awarded the Institute's annual Great Prize, which is handed to Swedes who contribute to the country's development in the arts and sciences.
