Another of the 90s dance legends – Leftfield – have reformed and will be playing a live set at RockNess 2010.
RockNess festival Director Jim King was quoted on STV as saying: Ã¢â‚¬Å“WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been trying to get Leftfield to do some shows for years and now itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s actually going to happen. Ask any electronic band 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 wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know what hit you when these guys kick in.Ã¢â‚¬Â
It is not yet known what other live appearances Leftfield will be playing – but it’s worth bearing in mind that Glade festival organiser Nick Ladd told Ravetalk on 12 January: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Yes, we have already confirmed the main headliner and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s at least as big a name as last yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s [ Underworld].Ã¢â‚¬Â
Leftfield are known for playing loud and famously caused dust and plaster to fall from the roof of the Brixton Academy at their 1996 gig, prompting a ban on their sound system from ever returning to the venue.
