The event is also set to include open mic sessions, comedy, surprise live bands as well as a host of guest DJs still to be announced.
Speaking about the unique show Glastonbury Left Field director, Geoff Martin, said: "We thought that rather than just doing a one off gig as a Glasto warm up we ought to pull together a bit of a mini-festival and that's what we're doing.
"A bunch of people are getting the train down from London on the Friday morning and then heading back on the milk train first thing Saturday just to be part of this unique event. And it's all for Rock Against Racism, what more could you want?"
The Rock Against Racism event will take place at various venues around Brighton, East Sussex on Friday 13 June. For the full Left Field stage line-up at Glastonbury click HERE.
