UK’s left wing socialist Labour party makes history as it becomes first ever Britains political party to hold a music festival. Mixing music and politics, the event dubbed Labour Live drew thousands of men, women, young and old as they dance to music and lisyen to speeches.
Despite the huge critics from the mainsstream UK media and the squabbles within the party leadership on stances with Brexit, the Labour Live still proved successful with over 13,500 enthused attendees enjoy the excitement of the day.
Quashing the right wing smear media and sneering from ‘Tory trolls’, one Labour Live goer tweets,
“Ok well there’s already 50 times more people in a single tent at Labour Live than made it to the whole of Tory Glastonbury last year. 😂🍺🤗 #LabourLive you are winning! #JC4PM ” https://t.co/94NrsyR1Qs

Labour’s Jones Owen tweeted,
“They said Labour Live wouldn’t work. They sneered at it. They mocked it.

It was not all good for the image of the party and the show, as you would expect in a democratic political gathering, a handful of young labour members used the opportunity to make their views known demanding that the party stop backing brexit.
So far, Labour and its leader, Jeremy Corbyn has had another win to their belt.
