The 1975 have announced a huge outdoor London show for later this year.
The band will put on their own one day event in Finsbury Park on 11th July, with a massive supporting cast including Charli XCX, Clairo, Pale Waves, Phoebe Bridgers, Beabadoobee, Cavetown and Deb Never.
As well as a packed line-up, the show is set to be “the greenest Finsbury Park has ever seen”, according to a press release. A number of measures are being put in place to make it more environmentally sustainable, including:
- For the first time ever in the UK, planned, traceable sustainably sourced HVO fuel from Europe will be used to power an entire event – bringing down the carbon footprint by 90%
- It’ll be the first paperless show in Finsbury Park – all tickets will be digital
- The 1975 sustainable merch range available at show – fans are encouraged to bring old The 1975 t shirts (or those of any other band) to be reprinted with new designs
- Festival Republic will plant 1,975 trees throughout the surrounding boroughs of Haringey, Hackney and Islington in partnership with Trees for Cities
- The 1975 have pledged to plant trees across the globe for every ticket sold through One Tree Planted initiative
- Hybrid powered generators with solar arrays will be deployed, along with reducing generator sizes from extensive monitoring carried out in 2019
- Food vendors will operate a traffic light system highlighting the carbon footprint of each meal sold
So there we go.
Tickets will be priced at £52.50 + booking fee and go on sale Friday 31st January at 9am.
The 1975’s new album ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’ is set for release on 24th April, with a full UK tour kicking off next month. You can hear their most recent single, ‘Me & You Together Song’, here.
