Formed in 1990, the outfit is widely considered a pioneer in dance and house music, and have collaborated with the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Underworld, and John Lydon. Their two studio albums — 1995’s Leftism and 199’s Rhythm and Stealth — both earned critical accolades and charted #3 and #1 respectively on the UK charts.
The Rock Ness appearance will mark Left Field’s first performance in nearly a decade.
“We’re been trying to get Leftfield to do some shows for years and now its actually going to happen,” explained festival director Jim King. “Ask any electronic bands 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 won’t know what hit you when Leftfield kick in. The band just have everything in the locker from the pounding bass lines of ‘Phat Planet’ to the pioneering and visionary beauty of ‘Melt’.”
King added: “Get on line now and reconnect with the band that unquestionably defined the music of a whole generation.”
Leftfield joins The Strokes, Hadouken!, Friendly Fires, Club 75, Boys Noize, and 2manydjs as acts currently scheduled to perform at Rock Ness. The festival takes place on the shores of Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands from June 11-13.
