When is Labour Live and who is in the line-up?
The Labour party is staging its Labour Live festival on Saturday with headline acts including Clean Bandit, Rae Morris, Reverend and The Makers and The Magic Numbers.
Jeremy Corbyn will make an appearance on stage, along with shadow chancellor John McDonnell, shadow international development secretary Kate Osamor and Owen Jones, a prominent Corbyn cheerleader.
The 20,000-capacity White Hart Lane recreation ground will play host to the festival, dubbed a “mini-Glastonbury”, with Labour hoping it will recreate the success of their general election rallies last year.
Last summer saw Mr Corbyn appear at Glastonbury festival, where crowds chanted the Labour leader’s name.
Despite the line-up ticket prices have been slashed
How much are the tickets?
The party has slashed the price of tickets for their so-called “Jezfest” event by more than 70 per cent in a last-ditch effort to secure sales.
Tickets were originally priced at £35 for adults, £30 for concessions and £10 for children.
They are now £10 and free for under 14s with just a day to go before the big event.
Tickets have also been given away for free, along with complimentary travel, through constituency Labour parties and the Unite union.
