The organisers of the Left Field at this year's Glastonbury's festival are aiming to bring Michael Moore, author of Stupid White Men and director of Bowling for Columbine, down to Somerset to inject some serious agitation into the event!
[r-zone2]The Left Field is the newest area on the Glasto site and kicked off last year but promises to be back “bigger, better and angrier” for 2003. It will kick off on the Thursday night in anti-Nazi style with a set from Love Music Hate Racism.
[l-zone3]Other confirmed Left Fielders this year are veteran Labour politician Tony Benn and his musical accomplice Roy Bailey, hard-hitting comics Mark Thomas, Mark Steel and Jeremy Hardy, Glasto stalwart Billy Bragg and a whole stack of other names to be announced. There will also be a tribute night to the late Joe Strummer supported by the Fire Brigades Union.
[r-zone1]Geoff Martin, union organiser and Left Field promoter, said:
“Anyone who seriously thinks that young people aren’t interested in politics should get over to the Left Field at Glastonbury for the last weekend in June and we’ll nail that lie before their very eyes.”
