Philosophy and music festival announces The Orb and The Correspondents
HowTheLightGetsIn – the world’s largest philosophy and music festival – has announced its headliners.
Taking place from 25 – 28 May, the original pioneers of ambient house music, English electronic music group The Orb will headline the mainstage at this year’s festival. Inspired by the ambient and electronic artists of the 1980s, most notably Brian Eno and Kraftwerk, and dubbed the ‘Pink Floyd of the ‘90s’, The Orb’s psychedelic prog-rock sound has influenced drum & bass, house and hip-hop music, worldwide.
British electro swing duo, The Correspondents, who have gained a rapid reputation for their energetic and infectious beats, combining old jazz classics with modern rhythms, not to mention their flamboyant stage presence are also confirmed for 2018. Billed as the ‘kings of hip-hop swing’, this multi-genre force have performed at Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party and Bestival. Included in the Daily Telegraph’s top 10 moments of Glastobury highlights two years running, their set is sure to be a festival highlight.
Also appearing on the bill is classical-popular singer Laura Wright and singer-songwriter, Nerina Pallot, who was recently nominated for Best British Female Artist and Best Song.
With 500 events and artists across 12 stages, HowTheLightGetsIn brings the world’s leading thinkers together with a programme of music, comedy, culture and performance - set on the edge of the Black Mountains, alongside the river Wye.
