Global Gathering 2009 headliners The Prodigy, Orbital, Pendulum @ Stratford Upon Avon, UK

Global Gathering

Global Gathering has revealed the magnetic headliners set to make waves at this summer's festival.

Set to cause a commotion this year will be electronic heavy weights The Prodigy, kings of improvised techno Orbital, and bullish beat maestros Pendulum - on July 24th-25th at Long Marston Airfield, Stratford Upon Avon, UK.

Expect some heavy beats and high energy hooks at this year's Global Gathering Festival as 55,000 people congregate at the Long Marston Airfields for a two day, non-stop electronic music weekender that brings together the world's greatest live and DJ talent. The festival takes place at the height of summer and is set apart by its commitment to next generation technology with inter-galactic visuals and sound systems guaranteed to take the crowd "to another dimension".

The Prodigy

The Prodigy, renowned for classics such as "Firestarter" and "Breathe" are the ultimate rave renegades. With fans such as Prince William and Harry, this year's Global Gathering may be the first to have a royal stamp of approval. The devilish trio, Liam, Keith and Maxim are renowned for their high-octane shows. There is no doubt their headline performance will have an ocean of fans dancing and jumping together for one of those never to be forgotten festival moments.


Techno time lords, Orbital, will be celebrating their twentieth anniversary with their headline show at this year's Global Gathering. With fifteen years of active service and a back catalogue of roof-raising anthems such as "Chime" and "Belfast", Orbital are masters at building crowds into a frenzy of excitement. Mixing euphoric dance gems with perfectly placed samples of Bon Jovi, Belinda Carlisle and Ian Drury, they deliver a wicked sense of humour to their sets that never fail to impress.


Having tasted their first bit of success following a remix of influencer and co-headliners, The Prodigy's track "Voodoo People", Pendulum single-handedly conquered the world of drum and bass in their first twelve months together. The Australian trio relocated to the UK after taking the charts by storm. Their rock-fuelled brand of drum and breaks has helped win them a much broader audience than most drum and bass acts.

Global Gathering throws open its gates from Friday 24th until July 25, 2009. Electronic music aficionados and the world's most glamorous clubbing cognoscenti abandon themselves to a euphoric marathon of aural ecstasy from all ends of the dance spectrum including House, Trance, Leftfield, Breaks and so much more.

James Algate, Global Gathering Festival Organiser: "This year's festival once again promises electronic music fans a stellar line-up. With the live stage, eight musical arenas, including the Godskitchen marquee, the biggest in Europe holding a staggering 15000 people, this summer's weekend is set to be a crowd pleaser. The festival has always been pioneering in improving the customer experience and listening to feedback through the busy online community. This year is no exception and we are pleased to announce a deposit ticketing scheme for this summers festival."
