The 1975 consists of four childhood friends from Manchester who have played together since their teens. After many attempts, this resulted in The 1975, a name they got from a poetry collection. The singles ‘Sex’ and ‘Chocolate’ and their support acts for Muse and the Rolling Stones quickly opened the door to great success. Their untitled debut reached #1 in the UK, as did their latest album ‘Being Funny in a Foreign Language’ (2022), for the fifth time in a row. They are perfectly on course to make their dream come true: to become one of the greatest bands on Earth. The 1975 is definitely one of the most diverse bands. There isn’t really any genre with which they aren’t associated. They themselves most enjoy comparisons to My Bloody Valentine, The Streets and Talking Heads. Fun fact: 1975 was the first year Rock Werchter took place.
