Orbital at bluedot festival 2017 at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre, Macclesfield 7 — 9 July 2017 Tickets from £129.00 — Book now

Perhaps the most anticipated performance at this year’s bluedot will come from Orbital, aka brothers Paul and Phil Hartnoll, who have reformed following a five-year hiatus. The duo have held a well-cemented place in the hearts of dance music fans since their mid-1990s breakthrough album Orbital, going on to create numerous euphoric electronic anthems.

In 2017, they make a welcome return to the live music arena – and, reportedly, have a new album in the offing too.
