Glastonbury Left Field: The Tony Benn Years

PROTEST singer-songwriter Billy Bragg unveiled the line-up for Glastonbury’s only left-wing stage yesterday, saying its agenda “has been set by the Tories.”
Bragg has curated the festival’s Left Field stage since 2010. It was launched in 2002 by the RMT’s Geoff Martin, then Battersea and Wandsworth TUC organiser, in a bid to tackle political apathy and promote left-wing views.
“This year at Left Field, our agenda has been set by the Tories,” said Bragg.
“No, we’re not turning into Right Field, we’re simply responding to the challenges that people will face under the new administration.”
This music video from Britain is called The Buzzcocks Live 1981.
PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka and GMB organiser Elly Baker will join a debate on workers’ rights while representatives of Greece’s governing party Syriza and Spain’s left-wing Podemos will discuss the rise of radical movements across Europe with Cat Boyd of Scotland’s Radical Independence Campaign.
A Feminism Without Borders discussion will be chaired by journalist Reni Eddo-Lodge and feature E15 mum Jasmin Stone, who has become a staunch housing activist after being evicted from her own hostel.
“We round it all off with a discussion about how to begin the fightback against the new Tory government on a panel that will include Labour’s Ken Livingstone and Scottish commentator Pat Kane,” added Bragg.
The Glastonbury festival takes place over the last weekend of June at Worthy Farm, Pilton.
The event, which has its roots in the free festival movement of the ’70s and was organised by the CND in the ’80s, has faced criticism in recent years for becoming too corporate.
