About The Orb

Tickets available from 9am on Wednesday 18th July 2018 via festival ticketing partner Ticketweb

The Orb virtually invented the electronic genre known as ambient house, resurrecting slower, more soulful rhythms and providing a soundtrack for early-morning ravers once the clubs closed their doors.

Founded in 1988 by Alex Paterson and The KLF member Jimmy Cauty, membership of The Orb has been fluid over the years, with Paterson remaining the only constant throughout.

1992 saw the single ‘Blue Room’ reach number 8 in the British charts (despite its playing time of almost 40 minutes). The Orb promoted this single by performing on Top of the Pops playing a game of chess wearing space suits with footage of dolphins whilst an edited version of Blue Room ran in the background.

Longplayers ‘The Orb’s Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld’ and ‘U.F.Orb’, are often cited as seminal classics and the latter reached number 1 in the British album charts in 1992. Paterson also co-wrote the peerless ‘Higher Than The Sun’ by Primal Scream.

The Orb released their fifteenth studio album, ‘No Sounds Are Out of Bounds’, on 22nd June 2018 via Cooking Vinyl.

These fifteen albums plus EPs, singles, compilations and live recordings have influenced countless other musicians along the way.
