GIAF + Róisín Dubh presents Leftfield at the Heineken Big Top

Galway International Arts Festival and Róisín Dubh present Leftfield at the Heineken Big Top on Friday 19th July.

Formed in 1988, Leftfield was originally comprised of Neil Barnes and Paul Daley. Leftfield’s legendary live-performances paired with seminal albums, 1995s Leftism and 1999s Rhythm & Stealth (both Mercury Music Prize nominees), solidified their position as true pioneers.

The group then went on a hiatus in 2002 before returning in 2010 for live-appearances (now led solely by Barnes). 2015’s Alternative Light Source was the first Leftfield album in sixteen years. The record garnered acclaim from The Guardian, The Observer, Uncut, Mojo and more, and featured Jason Williamson (Sleaford Mods) and Tunde Adebimpe (TV on The Radio), amongst others. In 2017, the band reissued their classic album Leftism, remastering the original 11 tracks of the record and releasing 11 remixes. They then embarked on a special sold out tour in support of the reissue, playing Leftism in its entirety. At the end of last year, Leftfield released their album This Is What We Do, following the earlier release of the direct and dancefloor driven track, “Accumulator”.
