ORBITAL Chevron Gardens’ first act

Dance bro duo Orbital have been announced as the first Perth Festival contemporary music act for 2019 and are set to appear at the Chevron Gardens venue.

The pair will be responsible for closing the festivities on Saturday, 2 March after an extended leave of absence in the music world.

Last year marked the release of their new album Monsters Exist, which is described as drawing “inspiration from the international political landscape all the way back from Paul and Phil’s pre-rave squat-punk roots right up to the volatile tensions and erratic rhetoric of today”.

Plus 2019 will signify 30 years as Orbital for the brothers, who formed in 1989 in Sevenoaks, Kent.

Orbital play Perth Festival at Chevron Gardens on Saturday, March 2. Tickets are on sale now at the Perth Festival website
