The Left Field stage has always been one of the most eclectic and interesting stages at Glastonbury with political music and speakers like Tony Benn- a corner of the mega festival that is still beating with a counter culture heart.

The tour picks up on this spirit with all the artists on the tour playing a political pop with a social commentary.

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.’
