Billy Bragg - Mermaid Avenue
Billy Bragg - Mermaid Avenue

Since taking over the running of the Left Field at Glastonbury Festival in 2010, Billy Bragg has made an effort to showcase young artists who are mixing pop and politics.

The Left Field in Motion Tour will take that concept on the road, with a ticket price pegged lower than usual in an attempt to connect a new generation to the power of music with something to say.

Bragg follows that call to arms by bringing together a brace of contemporary artists whose songs are full of social comment on the Left Field In Motion Tour: ska/punk radicals The King Blues will be joining him for selected dates bringing their acclaimed righteous sense of ire and fervour, frustration and celebration.

For the remaining dates and in recognition of what is currently the most political music scene in the UK, MOBO Award winning hip hop artist and founder of The Hip Hop Shakespeare Company Akala will also be joining the tour.

Support for all the shows will be from the astounding genre defying hip hop poetry of Sound of Rum as they continue to attract endless superlatives in their unshakeable quest to make everyone "hear what we are doing".
