We didn't realize it was possible to love Robyn any more than we already do, but her latest endeavor just puts our obsession completely over the top.

The singer announced that she will partner with Sweden's Royal Institute of Technology to launch a one-day festival dedicated to promoting women in the technology world.

The festival, which has been named Tekla, will take place on April 18th. Robyn will headline the event with a performance, but there will also be speeches from motivational speakers and workshops for women as well. 

The singer aims to use the festival as a way to reach girls aged 11-18 and let them know that despite its male-dominated history, there is a huge need for women in technology.

"Tekla is a festival for girls," Robyn said in a press release about the event. "They get to sample different areas of future technology in what I believe will be a fun and imaginative environment."

We love it! Now, spend the rest of the day watching some epic Robyn videos.
