Manchester four-piece The 1975 have announced a headline show for Saturday 11th July 2020 at Finsbury Park, London, and the greenest show Finsbury Park has had.
With two stages of music, there's a supporting cast of Charli XCX, US singer-songwriter Clairo, indie pop four-piece Pale Waves, Phoebe Bridgers, rising star Beabadoobee, singer-songwriter Cavetown, and alt-emo star Deb Never, with more acts to be announced.
This event will be the most sustainably responsible live show ever hosted in Finsbury Park. Reducing the on-site carbon footprint by 90% the event will use sustainably sourced and traceable Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) fuel to power the entire event, as well as using hybrid powered generators with solar arrays, and reduced generator sizes.
Alongside this Festival Republic will introduce a food traffic light system that calculates the carbon footprint of each meal sold. Customers will be made aware via this coded system of the carbon footprint of each meal consumed, raising awareness on food related emissions to enable informed choices.
Working with urban tree planting specialists Trees for Cities, Festival Republic have confirmed that 1975 trees will be planted in the surrounding local boroughs of Haringey, Islington and Hackney. A range of tree species will be planted with local residents enhancing community wellbeing, increasing biodiversity, capturing carbon and improving air quality in these areas. The 1975 have also pledged with ‘One Tree Planted’ to plant a tree for every ticket sold. These trees will be planted globally in Indonesia, Peru, Brazil, the Philippines and India. Tree planting in these areas restores forests that provide much needed temperature regulation on the equator, conserving biodiversity, creating jobs and income for local communities and establishing sustainable land management practices.
To reduce waste and highlight the environmental impact of clothing The 1975 will be repurposing merchandise from previous tours, with live screen printing of a choice of The 1975 graphics. Fans are encouraged to bring old The 1975 t shirts or those of any other band to be reprinted.
Tickets are priced at £52.50, and go on sale at 9am on Friday 31st January.
