The Orb celebrate their 30th anniversary with a special all-day event.

When Alex Paterson, The Orb’s founder, considered where to celebrate 30 incredible years of music he wanted somewhere special, something unique. So, he’s devised OrbFest at the Roundhouse, an all-day Orb curated festival bringing together some of the most important, exciting and current acts in electronic music.

The celebratory Orb gig will feature a 30th Anniversary Greatest Hits set highlighting the best of The Orb, alongside debuting tracks from their brand new album, No Sounds Are Out Of Bounds, which is set for release the day before (22 June).

The day will also feature the classic Orb line-up that includes “Fluffy Clouds” by co-originator and producer Youth along with Roger Eno, Michael Rendall and some very special guests on the night. A scintillating array of support performances will come from Leftfield, Gas (Wolfgang Voigt), Ulrich Schnauss, System 7 and Chocolate Hills.

Ulrich Schnauss will be joined by Nat Urazmetova, a London-based visual artist who integrates the cross-disciplinary approach and lens media in her work.

The Roundhouse goes to extraordinary lengths to provide opportunities for young people to be heard.
