GLASTO LEFT FIELD LINE-UP REVEALED

Babyshambles man loves music but hates racism...

Babyshambles and The Others will head up the just-announced LEFT FIELD at GLASTONBURY this year.

One of the festival’s many smaller stages, the Left Field is organised by Battersea and Wandsworth Trades Union Council and is a centre for social and political campaigns at the festival.

The Friday night (June 24) promises Sonic Audio, The Beat, British Sea Power and The Lovegods.

Saturday night sees urban meet indie in the latest in the series of Love Music Hate Racism shows, and features Babyshambles and The Others alongside Lady Sovereign, Skitz and Rodney P.

And Sunday’s Global Solidarity night is headlined by Billy Bragg, joined by Steve Earle and Alison Mourer.

Geoff Martin, from Battersea and Wandsworth TUC said: “This stunning line-up of talent will have the Left Field buzzing this year. We’ve got a bigger tent, a bigger area and we’re cooking up a programme that will pack the place to the rafters. We’ve also got some very special guests in the pipeline along with a film premiere, campaigning initiatives, a Cuban Fiesta and the infamous Left Field happy hour.”
