Tickets for Labour Live go on sale on Monday 19 March (today).

News of the festival follows Corbyn’s appearance at Glastonbury Festival 2017, where he gave a rousing speech on the Pyramid Stage before introducing hip hop duo Run The Jewels. 

“What festivals, what this festival is about, are about coming together,” he said at the time. ”This festival was envisaged as being for music yes, but also for the environment, and for peace.”
