Musician Billy Bragg is to curate his own stage at this summer's Glastonbury Festival, organisers have announced.
The 52-year-old will book the bill for the Leftfield tent, which returns this year after being axed in 2009.
Bragg said his role would be "a bit of everything - curator, MC, performer, guitar roadie [and] juggler."
The stage will aim to bring a political dimension to the event, described as "the original activist festival" by the Barking-born veteran.
Glastonbury, said Bragg, "has always had that political edge since its rebirth in the 1980s as a gathering for dissidents and dancers".
"Leftfield's mixture of red and green politics aims to reflect the way activism plays an important part in the festival as a whole."
No Leftfield acts have yet been announced, though Bragg said he had started "sounding people out".
He said there would be "daily debates" and discussions on the stage, with music performances in the evening.
Past performers on the stage have included Brit-nominee Seasick Steve, Dirty Pretty Things and Kate Nash.
Last month, Bragg announced he would act and perform in a London stage production looking at the pressures on a white working class community.
The show, entitled Pressure Drop, runs at the Wellcome Collection from 19 April to 12 May.
