"Every time I play it, it’s like I might as well have just been there in the pit, jumped over the barrier and grabbed the mic"

The 1975‘s Matty Healy has spoken of his band’s position as headliners of Reading & Leeds 2019 – declaring that it’s something he ‘needs to do’.

Healy and co were alongside Foo Fighters, Post Malone and Twenty One Pilots in being announced to top the bill at next yer’s festival this morning. As they prepare drop their acclaimed third album ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships‘ before a huge UK and Ireland arena tour, the frontman of the Manchester band have said that their slot fulfils a childhood dream, having attended Leeds Festival so much in their teens.

“The reason we’re doing it is I need to headline Reading and Leeds festival, because we went there as fans when we were kids,” Healy told NME. “Every time I [play] it, it’s like I might as well have just been there in the pit, jumped over the barrier and grabbed the mic.

“That’s how I feel at that festival. It’s sick. We went to Leeds like 10 times when we were kids.”

Also on the bill for Reading & Leeds 2019 so far are Bastille, Pale Waves, The Distillers , The Amazons, Billie Eilish, Blossoms, Bowling For Soup, Camelphat, Crucast, Denis Sulta, G Flip, Hayley Kiyoko, Juice WRLD, NOT3S, PVRIS, Stefflon Don, Sundara Karma and Yungblud.
