ORBITAL

With nine studio albums and three decades of electronic dance music performances to their name, the multi award–winning ORBITAL are renowned for their legendary live shows. Brothers Paul and Phil Hartnoll have been making waves on the global techno scene for many years. The Guardian credited ORBITAL with ‘converting’ the 1994 Glastonbury Festival crowds to dance music with a performance Q Magazine has called one of the Top 50 Gigs of all time. Q magazine have had them on their list of ‘50 bands to see before you die’ while their studio work has seen them successfully remix Madonna and Kraftwerk hits and collaborate with soundtrack composer Angelo Badalamenti and Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammet. Known for live performances incorporating techno improv, they were joined on stage in Glastonbury in 2009 by actor Matt Smith for a remix of the Doctor Who theme. Expect to hear classic singles like Chime, Style, The Box, and Satan as well as songs from their latest studio album released last year, Monsters Exist. See for yourself why ORBITAL won NME Awards for Best Dance Act and Best Live Event. Support from Daithí.
