Left Field experiences include the Co-op Cyberstation where Glasto-goers can email free photo e-cards home and sample ethical goodies. Alternatively, about a chance of 15 minutes of fame in the Amicus Diary Room? There’ll be innovative campaign messages from War on Want, Justice for Colombia, Stop the War, the International Solidarity Movement and No Sweat: keep your eyes peeled for those ‘death squad paramilitaries’ and the Human Banana’s from Bananalink.

There’s Fair Trade shopping galore from Ethical Threads and Bookmarks and of course the late night Left Field Bar. Your safety at the Left Field 2004 is assured by FBU stewards, so sipping a Che Guevara cocktail during happy hour, the message of solidarity has never tasted better!
