The 1975 announce "greenest show Finsbury Park has ever seen"

As an outfit that have been at the forefront of environmental and social activism these last few years, The 1975 have now announced their plans for an incredibly eco-friendly gig at London's Finsbury Park this summer.

Set to take place on the 11th July, the group have also announced a stellar support line-up, which includes Charli XCX, Clairo, Pale Waves, Phoebe Bridgers, Beabadoobee, Cavetown and Deb Never, as well as an impressive list of efforts aimed to make this the "greenest show Finsbury Park has ever seen". These include:

- For the first time ever in the UK, planned, traceable sustainably sourced HVO fuel from Europe will be used to power an entire event – bringing down the carbon footprint by 90%
- First paperless show in Finsbury Park – all tickets will be digital
- The 1975 sustainable merch range available at show – fans are encouraged to bring old The 1975 t shirts or those of any other band to be reprinted with new designs
- Festival Republic will plant 1,975 trees throughout the surrounding boroughs of Haringey, Hackney and Islington in partnership with Trees for Cities
- The 1975 have pledged to plant trees across the globe for every ticket sold through One Tree Planted initiative
- Hybrid powered generators with solar arrays will be deployed, along with reducing generator sizes from extensive monitoring carried out in 2019
- Food vendors will operate a traffic light system highlighting the carbon footprint of each meal sold

Tickets for the event go on sale from the 31st January at 9am, and can be found here. For more information, visit www.festivalrepublic.com
