Billy Bragg curates Glastonbury spin-off tour

The King Blues, Akala and Sound Of Rum join Bragg's Left Field In Motion tour

Billy Bragg is set to perform alongside The King Blues, Akala and Sound Of Rum on the first ever Left Field In Motion tour, curated by Bragg himself.

The tour takes its name from the Glastonbury‘s ‘pop and politics’ area, the Left Field, which Bragg has been running since 2010. All of the artists playing the tour are vocal in their political beliefs and provide social commentary in their music. Of the tour Bragg has said:

Music helped me to make connections when I was growing up – between the situation I found myself in and the powerful people who put me there. Artists need to start engaging in this debate again and The King Blues, Akala and Sound Of Rum are inspiring examples of those prepared to push against the power.
