The organisers of the Good Vibes Festival, held in Malaysia in June have threatened legal action against The 1975 after the band’s frontman Matty Healy made a speech about homosexuality and kissed a fellow band member onstage.
Homosexual acts are illegal in Malaysia and are punishable under federal law.
The three-day event was axed after The 1975’s performance. The festival’s other headliners, The Kid Laroi and The Strokes did not play after the incident.
The organisers allege that The 1975’s “use of abusive language, equipment damage, and indecent stage behaviour” impacted them financially.
