Following reports of disappointing ticket sales...

Unite have stepped in to bolster the inaugural Labour Live festival.

The one day event will take place in Tottenham, London on June 16th, featuring live sets from Rae Morris, Reverend & The Makers and more.

The initial line up roll out was criticised for being a little flat and lacking big names, and this was perhaps reflected in ticket sales.

If reports are to be believed then around 2500 tickets have been sold for the event, which has a capacity of 15000.

Now Unite has stepped in to show support. The trade union will provide 1000 tickets for free on a first come first served basis, while also providing free travel.

Could it save the event? The Guardian reports some Labour insiders fearing the event has the potential for a seven figure loss - meanwhile others dismiss this.

Labour Live takes place on June 16th.
