Veteran dance act Orbital will draw a close to their 15 year career by making their final ever live appearance at this summer's (04) Glastonbury FESTIVAL.

The brother partnership, Phil and PAUL HARTNOLL, have promised to play a greatest hits set at the legendary British music festival, where they performed some of their most celebrated shows.

Paul says, "I think we feel that Orbital has run its course. We're both pursuing different avenues with our music. And we've been sat, as brothers, in the same room for 15 years now - and studios are always confined spaces - I think it's time for a change.

"It's nice to know that we're finishing, it's not many bands that do that. They tend to just fade away. And it's nice to have our last gig at Glastonbury.

"It's gonna be a party set, a best of Orbital. We're not gonna sit there and try and promote the new album. I think if we're gonna do a last gig we should do distilled set of all the best stuff we've done.

"And that's what we're gonna do, play all the stuff that's stuck around for all this time because they are the favourite ones."
