The 1975 announce rescheduled 2021 date for major Finsbury Park concert


The 1975 have been forced to postpone their huge outdoor show at London’s Finsbury Park because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The show, which was due to take place on 11th July with a huge line-up set to support the indie-pop juggernauts, has been moved to on July 10 next year.

All tickets being paperless as one measure the band is employing to try and off-set the carbon footprint of the show.

Other measures include sustainably sourced HVO fuels being used as the fuel to power the event which will bring the carbon footprint down by 90%.

Festival Republic will also be plating nearly 2,000 trees in the surrounding boroughs and The 1975 pledging to plant trees globally.

Arriving at Finsbury Park in 2021, The 1975 will be joined on the day by Charli XCX, Clairo, Pale Waves, Phoebe Bridgers, Beabadoobee, Deb Never, and Cavetown, with (somehow) even more acts to be announced/

Discussing the rescheduled show, the band’s label, Dirty Hit, said: “We found a date that works for July 2021. If you have a ticket for the cancelled July 2020 show your ticket agent will be in touch – you can have either a refund for your July 2020 ticket or you can transfer to a ticket for July 2021.”
