THE LABOUR Party is to stage a one-day music festival in London this summer.

Labour Live is set to take place at Tottenham’s White Hart Lane recreation ground on 16 June and feature artistes such as Rae Morris, the Magic Numbers and Jermain Jackman, with more to be announced.

Following his success with a speech from the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury (cap. 140,000) last year, party leader Jeremy Corbyn will also be appearing, along with shadow chancellor John McDonnell and secretary of state for international development Kate Osamor.

Other political and literary speakers are set to join the programme. Tickets cost between £10-35.

In the early-1980s, artistes such as Paul Weller, Billy Bragg, Kirsty MacColl and Labour formed campaign group Red Wedge in an attempt to engage young people in politics, putting on a number of tours.
