The Chemical Brothers to Play Summer Show at Castle Howard

The Chemical Brothers Featured

One of the most iconic names in worldwide electronic music, The Chemical Brothers, have announced a special outdoor show for 2022.

It’ll be in the grounds of the stunning Castle Howard in Yorkshire. And that’s sure to provide the most unique backdrop for a summer rave. The breath-taking Grade I listed residence was built upon the site of a former castle. And it’s been home to the Carlisle branch of the Howard family for over 300 years.

For over twenty years The Chemical Brothers have redefined the idea of live electronic music. In that time, their live show has evolved from humble beginnings in dank London nightclubs into one of the most in demand festival headline sets in the world. All the while, it has adhered to the same basic idea: that the gig should create its own transcendent audio/visual space where the audience can lose themselves for the duration of the set.

“Critical acclaim”

The band’s latest and ninth studio release No Geography secured a whole new wave of critical acclaim. And also two more Grammy awards.

Last year, they released the single ‘The Darkness That You Fear’. They also produced new mixes for their ‘Radio Chemical’ project for Sonos Radio and the 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.
