The 1975 are arguably the biggest British band of their era, so it’s entirely fitting that they’ve lined up a huge outdoor gig in one of London’s largest parks. The genre-hopping four-piece led by Matty Healy will blast out bangers such as ‘The Sound’ and ‘Love It If We Made It’ on Saturday July 11, a few months after they drop their fourth album ‘Notes on a Conditional Form’ on April 24. They’ll be joined in N4 by a frankly incredible list of support acts, including Charli XCX, Clairo, Pale Waves, Cavetown, Phoebe Bridgers, Beabadoobee and Deb Never. There will be two stages on the day, so the whole shebang should feel a lot like a mini one-day festival.
The 1975 collaborated with actual Greta Thunberg last year and we’ve heard they’re aiming to make their Finsbury Park gig a super environmentally friendly and sustainable affair. Anything else? Oh yeah – you might want to keep your eye out for ‘Loose Women’ legend Denise Welch, Healy’s mum, who hung out with Jared Leto during The 1975’s Coachella set a few years ago. Amazing.
The 1975 play Finsbury Park on Jul 11 and tickets go on sale this Fri (Jan 31) at 9am.
