Leftfield are to reunite for this summer's RockNess festival, performing a live set on the shores of Loch Ness. The techno duo, who helped define British dance music in the 1990s, have not played together in a decade.
"We've been trying to get Leftfield to do some shows for years and now its actually going to happen," festival director Jim King said. "I was fortunate to see them live more than 10 years ago and if you think the Prodigy are loud then you won't know what hit you when Leftfield kick in."
Leftfield were formed by DJs Paul Daley and Neil Barnes in 1989, releasing just two albums before breaking up in 2002. Both records went top five in the UK, and hits like Song for Life and Storm 3000 became legendary show-stoppers. "Ask any electronic band who was an inspiration for them and Leftfield will always be listed," King said. "They have everything in the locker, from the pounding bass lines of Phat Planet to the pioneering and visionary beauty of Melt."
The duo have not yet released a statement, nor have they confirmed any other festival or concert bookings. RockNess takes place from June 11-13. Other acts on the bill include the Strokes, Friendly Fires and 2manydjs.
