LEFT FIELD GLASTONBURY ANNOUNCES THURSDAY LINE UP
It's official....Pama Intl are once again performing at the Leftfield stage at Glastonbury this year. After last years show stopping performance Pama Intl have not only been asked back but they've been asked to co-host the stage for the Thursday evening as part of Leftfield's 'Anti-slavery night'.
As part of the programme, Pama Intl will be bringing their label mates along; The Pietasters (from Washington DC, the band that backed James Brown), The Slackers ("Americas premiere interpreters of Jamaican music") and Scotland's No.1 sound system Mungos Hi Fi. All four acts will have new albums out on Pama Intl's Rockers Revolt label (dist.by Universal).
Geoff Martin, Left Field Director, said:
“We will be getting the party started on the Thursday morning with some very special guest DJ’s and PA’s alongside our house band The Krak before we move in to our famous Thursday Latin American fiesta which will get people moving.
We are delighted to be hosting the finest young talent from Liverpool in our “Glastonbury vs The Capital of Culture” segment and then it’s a full on ska/reggae spectacular hosted by our good friends from Pama International before the Levellers top things off with a set for Anti Slavery International.”

To conicide with the tour, Rockers Revolt (dist.by Universal) are releasing new albums by all four acts.
