Brighton Music Conference: Orbital To Play DJ Set @ The UK's Foremost Electronic Music & Networking Event

Brighton Music Conference (BMC), the UK's foremost electronic music and networking event has teamed with Brighton nightclub The Arch for a special event on Sunday 27th June 2021.

The event will feature a special 30 Years Celebratory Dj set from electronic artists Orbital with support from Justin Robertson, Steve Mac and more tba. 

The event is part of the open-air series of events in Brighton called Life in the Park, which will take place from 12pm to 8pm at Brighton Rugby Club, Waterhall, Brighton. 
 
With 30 years passing since Chime was released, 30 years of rave, and 30 years of Orbital parties, The Arch and BMC are delighted to have the Hartnoll boys performing a special 30 year DJ set to mark the occasion.


Orbital are a British electronic dance music duo from Sevenoaks, England, consisting of brothers Phil and Paul Hartnoll. 

The band's name was taken from Greater London's orbital motorway, the M25, which was central to the early rave scene and party network in the South East during the early days of acid house. 

One of the biggest names in British electronic music, they are particularly known for their live improvisation during shows, a rarity among techno acts. 

Orbital are both critically and commercially successful, ready to cement their status as icons of the scene with a celebration of their 30th anniversary, but equally looking forward to an exciting future of new music and opportunities.

Life in the Park launches on 20th June featuring eight specially handpicked events will take place in partnership with Cream, Garden Project, Renaissance, BMC and Take x Other World with a capacity for 2000 people at each event and featuring world class DJ's including Orbital, Jamie Jones, Maceo Plex, Denis Sulta, Nightmares On Wax, Crazy P, Cinthie, Sally C, Cassy and more.

Written in 1888, Miss Julie - which comes to New Venture Theatre, Brighton - caused outrage when it opened and was banned by the censors — yet over 130 years later, it's no surprise that this powerful drama still retains its shock factor.

Showcasing Goodnight Louisa aka artist-producer Louise McCraw's icicle-clear vocals and stiletto-sharp writing smarts, visceral dark disco track Get Your Hands Off My Girlfriend dramatically contrasts euphoric 80s driven drum sounds and nostalgic synths with troubling lyrics on a little-talked about experience – the harassment and assault of gay women in what were thought to be safe spaces.
