The agenda for the popular 'pop and politics' tent includes the referendum on our membership of the European Union, with the results due to be declared during the Festival, the Leftfield will be trying to make sense of what the outcome means for Britain and its people. Whether the vote is to leave or remain, the issue of how we respond to those who come to our continent seeking asylum will not go away and Leftfield will be addressing the issue of our responsibilities to those who come seeking our help.
