Chaos resulted after the actions of The 1975’s main man Matt Healy went viral almost immediately after Healy had ranted about the Malaysian government’s stance on the LGBTQ+ community and proceeded to make out with his band member before getting stopped.

Following his actions, the government cancelled the Good Vibes Festival, leaving many fans, vendors and other acts extremely disappointed.

To hope to bring comfort to those affected, a group of lawyers has revealed that they would be representing local artists and vendors pro bono in a class action suit against The 1975, over lost income caused by the cancellation.

In a post shared by Mathew Thomas Philip, the founder and managing partner of the law firm Thomas Philip,  he shared, “The Good Vibes Festival got canceled and I presume that the local artists who were to perform today and tomorrow will not get their full pay because of this cancellation.”

“I am happy to represent all the local artist pro bono to sue the band The 1975 for causing loss. Dear The 1975, it is not The 1975’s time or space to tell us how to run our country. You should have stuck to your scope of work as per your contract, which you recklessly breached.”

In another post, Mathew shared that the pro bono team will consist of several lawyers under the firm who would be putting “their hearts and mind” into the first working draft of the class action by the persons affected by the reckless conduct of The 1975 resulting in the cancellation of the Good Vibes festival.

“If there is any further information that you may possess and which may have a bearing on the suit against The 1975 such as the location of the assets of The 1975 please contact our pro bono team. Thank you,” he added.
