Electronic pioneering duo Leftfield return after a decade to this summer's Rock Ness.

Leftfield
Rock Ness have announced that dance duo Leftfield will return for the first time since their self imposed four year hiatus with a live exclusive performance at the festival staged on the shores of Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands.

The duo of electronica artists and record producers, Paul Daley (formerly of A Man Called Adam and the Brand New Heavies) and Neil Barnes, formed in 1989 and had a memorable seminal performance at Glastonbury Festival in 2000 with 'Song For Life' and 'Storm 3000' from their debut album, 'Leftism' which became one of the highlights of the festival. The band were one of the leaders of electronica and hopefully will be allowed to play 'phat' at this summer's festival. Festival Director Jim King seems to be hinting at a loud festival performance at Rock Ness.

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 Band just have everything in the locker from the pounding bass lines of 'Phat Planet' to the pioneering and visionary beauty of 'Melt'. Get on line now and reconnect with the band that unquestionably defined the music of a whole generation."

Tonight's announcement also includes the confirmation that drum and bass outfit Chase & Status and German electro house act Boys Noize are also appearing at the festival held at the edge of Loch Ness, Scotland on Friday 11th to Sunday 13th June 2010.

Leftfield, Chase & Status and Boys Noize are the latest act confirmed for the festival which has already announced The Strokes, Hadouken!, 2manydjs, Soulwax, Friendly Fires, Club 75 (featuring Xavier de Rosnay, DJ Mehdi, and Busy P), Annie Mac, and Rob da Bank, with many more names still to be added.
