YUNGBLUD is known for his rebellious and progressive nature. Whether he's standing up for LGBTQ rights or addressing gun violence, he's always been outspoken, and that didn't change during his set at this year's Rock Werchter Festival. The English rocker wore a dress during his performance and painted a rainbow flag on his cheek to celebrate PRIDE month. "division is old fookin fashioned ... 🖤" he captioned a photo on Instagram taken after he finished his set. He also posted a video showing the sea of people there to see him during the Belgian music festival with a caption of disbelief of his quick come up.
