The 1975's Matt Healy: "There's so much faux modesty in music now"

"Somebody Else" hitmakers The 1975 are very keen to headline England's Glastonbury festival.

The band's frontman Matt Healy told Q magazine that it might seem a little narcissistic to discuss such lofty ambitions, but he wants to put it out there that he's very interested in taking the Pyramid stage at some point in the near future:

"I want to headline Glastonbury! Not next year, but soon. I never used to say stuff like this - I'm not a mental, insane narcissist - but there's so much faux modesty in music now. It's transpired that we get to play arenas all over the world, so why now would I not want to headline Glastonbury?"

He went onto add that he believes that if the Arctic Monkeys can headline the iconic musical extravaganza, his band can definitely follow suit:

"I'm not being a dickhead, but who is it going to be? If you want a young guitar band to headline Glastonbury in the next few years, The 1975 are the only real option... If Arctic Monkeys can do it on their second album, I can fucking do it, no problem."
