Leftfield to make festival return at Rock Ness

Leftfield are due to make their first live performance for ten years at this summer's Rock Ness festival.

The duo, made up of Paul Daley and Neil Barnes, hit the big time following two successful albums including their critically acclaimed masterpiece ‘Leftism’.

Speaking about the announcement, festival director Jim King said: "We've been trying to get Leftfield to do some shows for years and now it’s actually going to happen. Ask any electronic bands who was an inspiration for them and Leftfield will always be listed."

"I was fortunate to see them live over 10 years ago and if you think the Prodigy are loud then you won't know what hit you when Leftfield kick in. The Band just have everything in the locker from the pounding bass lines of ‘Phat Planet' to the pioneering and visionary beauty of ‘Melt'."

Rising drum and bass stars Chase and Status and German house DJ Boys Noize have also been added to the line-up.

The Strokes have also been confirmed to headline the event with support from Friendly Fires, 2ManyDJs and Annie Mac.

Weekend camping tickets are on sale now for £149 with non-camping, day at VIP tickets also available.
