Leftfield line-up announced

May 18, 2010

Following our announcement of the return of the Leftfield, Glastonbury’s "pop and politics" tent, we’re now very pleased to reveal the stage’s line-up.

This is what the tent’s curator, Billy Bragg, has to say about it: "Leftfield is back after a year’s sabbatical and the timing couldn’t be better. Come along and take part in our daily debates, stick around to see which songwriters I can pull together from around the site for Bill’s Big Round-Up, enjoy some edgy comedy in our Get Up, Stand Up spot and to top it all off, spend the evening listening to blistering live performances from artists with an activist edge. It’s all in the Leftfield. The fightback starts here!"
