Gay kiss by The 1975 lead singer shuts down music festival

Published

on

The Good Vibes Festival in Malaysia has been called off after British band The 1975’s lead singer, Matty Healy, criticised the country’s anti-LGBTQ laws and engaged in an on-stage kiss with a bandmate.

The incident, which occurred during their headline performance in Kuala Lumpur, led to the cancellation of the remaining two days of the event by the Ministry of Communications.

Homosexual acts are illegal in Malaysia, carrying penalties of fines and up to 20 years of imprisonment.

In a passionate speech, captured on social media, Healy expressed his frustration, questioning the point of inviting his band to a country that dictates who they can have relationships with.

He acknowledged that the young audience was likely diverse, with many progressive and LGBTQ individuals among them. He also revealed that the band had considered canceling the show but chose not to disappoint their fans.

The Good Vibes Festival released a statement expressing regret and stating that the cancellation was a result of Healy’s controversial conduct and remarks.

The festival emphasised its adherence to the Ministry’s directive against any actions that challenge or ridicule Malaysian laws. They apologised to ticket holders, vendors, sponsors, and partners for the inconvenience caused.

The Communications Minister, Fahmi, reportedly mentioned Malaysia’s commitment to supporting creative industries and freedom of expression despite this incident.
