LEFTFIELD are returning to Scotland to play at this year's RockNess festival on the banks of Loch Ness.
The dance stars have not played a live gig for over a decade and their appearance on the banks of the Loch is sure to be a monster hit with dance fans. Best known for their debut album Leftism, the influential duo will be appearing at the festival which takes place over the weekend of June 11 to 13 at Dores near Inverness.
They were one of the first dance acts to include guest vocalists and the hit Open Up featured Sex Pistols singer John Lydon. Their appearance is being viewed as a major coup for one of the major players on Scotland's summer music festival circuit.
Festival Director Jim King said: "We're been trying to get Leftfield to do some shows for years and now its actually going to happen. 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 bill for the weekend already includes The Strokes, Friendly Fires and 2 Many DJs.
