The Chemical Brothers, one of the biggest names in global electronic music, will headline an outdoor show at Yorkshire’s Castle Howard on Sunday, June 26. Tickets for the show will go on sale at 10am GMT on Friday February 11.
Since their formation in 1989, Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons have been responsible for shaping the big beat genre with nine studio releases, several Grammy Awards and uniquely transcendent rave-like concerts.
The iconic pair began their careers as DJs for acts such as Primal Scream and The Charlatans before releasing their debut album Exit Planet Dust in 1995. Next spring marks the 25th anniversary of their second album Dig Your Own Hole.
Throughout the 2000s, The Chemical Brothers have garnered critical acclaim and popularity in the electronic and dance scene. Perhaps their best known hit, 2005 single “Galvanize” secured them a Grammy, along with the album Push The Button.
With a European tour sweeping through Barcelona, Milan, Rome and Berne, the beat manufacturers are far from slowing down. In 2019 they collected yet another Grammy with their latest album No Geography winning Best Dance/Electronic Album.
Last year, they released the single “The Darkness That You Fear”, and produced new mixes for their Radio Chemical project for Sonos Radio and the bold, multi-sensory centrepiece of ‘Electronic – From Kraftwerk To The Chemical Brothers’ – the most successful exhibition in the history of London’s Design Museum – along with live visual creators Smith & Lyall.
After playing TRNSMT and Creamfields last year, fans will once again experience the audio and visual magnificence of The Chemical Brothers’ set as they headline their outdoor show at Castle Howard this June. The grade I listed residence was built upon the site of a former castle and has been home to the Carlisle branch of the Howard family for more than 300 years. It has appeared on-screen in the 1981 and 2008 adaptations of Brideshead Revisited, and more recently in the Netflix series Bridgerton.
