The 1975 aim for Glastonbury


Matt Healy of Indie Pop band, The 1975, has made the aspirations of the band very clear declaring ‘”I want to headline Glastonbury!”
“Not next year, but soon. I never used to say stuff like this – I’m not a mental, insane narcissist – but there’s so much faux modesty in music now. It’s transpired that we get to play arenas all over the world, so why now would I not want to headline Glastonbury?”
Whilst some might see this as a little arrogant, others will find it refreshing to see such an ambitious young band setting their sights high. As Matt keenly points out, it is not unlikely that they would be up there on the line-up, if not headlining: “I’m not being a d***head, but who is it going to be? If you want a young guitar band to headline Glastonbury in the next few years, The 1975 are the only real option… If Arctic Monkeys can do it on their second album, I can do it, no problem.”
