"If you believe you are a citizen of the world, you are a citizen of nowhere." - Theresa May
"Oh, go away." - Leftfest Inverness
Join your favourite politically-aggro hipsters Leftfest Inverness for a sensory feast on Brexit day – well, apparently at least – as we drink ourselves into a hazy cocoon of despair and dance in the ashes of what has been wrought on our once-outward looking country.
Get It Together
Central Scotland’s finest uplifting hardcore punk noisemakers make their Inverness bow as Citizens of Nowhere headliners. Expect fury, sweat, tears and waves of catharsis. How appropriate for Brexit day.
Table For Four
The Inverness pop-punks return to Leftfest after tearing the roof off the Claw at Never Mind the Monsters. Bratty, hooky and more infectious than the insidious encroachment of far-right rhetoric that led to this utter shitshow we’re trying to forget about.
Monsters In The Ballroom
Wildcard Tooth and Claw Battle of the Bands finalists, these fresh-faced rockers have not so much burst onto the scene as exploded, leaving a big fuzzy mess everywhere they’ve been. Expect big things from them. Yes, even bigger than a Leftfest fundraiser – somehow.
On the Black
We just couldn’t have a celebration of Europe and all its wonders without bringing On the Black’s world of folk fusion sounds back for a second round of belters. Flamenco guitar, gypsy fiddle and ethnic percussion take you on a journey where French chansons meet Scottish trad and jazz. They played Bella Ciao at the last Leftfest, so they’re also VERY on brand.
Fresh from spellbinding slots with both Sofar and the Porch Sessions, the city singer/songwriter brings her gossamer-light folk-tinged musings to the Claw to open musical proceedings.
SPOKEN WORD courtesy of Bastard Wordiness. The vaguely anarchic collective have been quietly doing great things with their new open mic events at the Tooth and Claw, and a programme of performers will be sharing their poems, prose and patter.
STAND-UP courtesy of Braw Bricht Comedy. The new kids on the block, the female-fronted comedy cavalcade have been offering up barrels of laughs as individual performers and as a collective. Needles and thread will be available behind the bar should you need to stitch your sides back together.
EXHIBITION featuring some of the works and pieces from Highland Migrant and Refugee Advocacy's Stories of Movement. Created to encourage the wider community to think in new ways about migration, the exhibition offers people an opportunity to reflect on the many and varied ways in which movement occurs and how, fundamentally, everyone has a story of movement.
Leftfest Inverness aims to be a safe and inclusive space for EVERYBODY who turns up We want to make sure that anybody who comes along can enjoy themselves at our wee jamboree, so please talk to one of the Leftfest crew if you have any issues and we'll be happy to help sort them out!
