With nine studio albums and three decades of electronic dance music performances to their name, ORBITAL are known for their legendary live shows in front of huge festival crowds.
Paul and Phil Hartnoll recorded their 1989 single ‘Chime’ on their father’s tape recorder. It went on to become a rave anthem, and the brothers from Kent have been making waves on the techno scene ever since, whether performing together as ORBITAL or as individuals. The Guardian credited ORBITAL with ‘converting’ the 1994 Glastonbury Festival to dance music with a performance Q magazine would call one of the top 50 gigs of all time. The band was also included in Q’s 2002 list of ‘50 Bands to See Before You Die.’
ORBITAL's diverse hits include remixes of Madonna and Kraftwerk and collaborations with soundtrack composer Angelo Badalamenti and Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammet. Known for live performances incorporating improvisation, they were joined on stage in Glastonbury in 2009 by actor Matt Smith for a remix of the Doctor Who theme.
With support from Daithí and his live band. Daithí will also be joined for part of the set by Bell X1’s Paul Noonan, Sinead White and Elaine Mai ahead of what’s sure to be an extraordinary live show from the legendary ORBITAL.
