The 1975 spoke out against discrimination and said ‘the world should be more like a music festival’, during their first ever major festival headline slot at Latitude last night. Check out photos, footage and the setlist below.

Not only was it their first ever festival headline set, but it was also the last night of their current tour for their acclaimed second album ‘I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It’ – NME’s album of the year for 2016.

Introducing ‘Loving Someone’ during the set, frontman Matty Healy delivered an emotional speech, in which he said that ‘the world should be more like a music festival.

“If the world was like this [Latitude], everything would be fine,” Healy told the crowd. “There might be a few too many drugs, but that never hurt anybody. We’re gonna play a song that is about universal love and compassion. I’m sorry if I ever said anything about religion or about anything that ever offended anybody – I don’t wanna offend anybody, ever. My intention is to spread love and unity.

“In particular, I wanna shout out all f the communities that are misrepresented and maligned. So, the Muslim community, the black community, the LGBTQ community. I wanna say that we stand with you and we fucking love you. We love every single person in this field. So who’s ready to get compassionate? Get them flags up!”

“If you look at third albums, ‘OK Computer’ or ‘The Queen Is Dead’, that’s what we need to do,” he said. “I want a legacy. I want people to look back and think our records were the most important pop records that a band put out in this decade.”

Latitude Festival 2017 continues with sets from Mumford & Sons, Fleet Foxes and many more.
