Worthy Farm may have enjoyed a fallow year but politics has been grinding on, with Big Bad Brexit taking up most of the available bandwidth for discussion. The good news is Left Field is back and focusing on issues that need talking about: the environment, the rise of the populist right, how the gig economy is pushing people to the margins of society. We’ll also be marking the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots – which falls on the weekend of the Festival – with a panel on queer liberation.
And we’re backing our arguments up with some great music from young artists who have something to say about the pressures that they live under. Left Field is all about big tent politics so come and join us under our big tent to recharge your activism!’
