Higher Ground Festival. STAY TUNED FOR 2024

Go back


Since forming in the deep underbelly of West Yorkshire, The Orielles have traversed several sonic planes; from their early DIY lo-fi origins to creating a new and modern brand of avant-garde, jazz-influenced expressionism, their latest body of work, Tableau, is their most ambitious and contemporary work yet. Voted Yuck Magazine’s #1 Album of The Year and Rough Trade’s Top 20 Album, Tableau presents “a rich feast of musical ideas” (Guardian ★★★★) with holistic jazz practices, oblique 21st century electronica, experimental 1960s tape loop methods, otherworldly autotuned vocal sounds, the downer dub of Burial, Sonic Youth’s focus on improvisation and feedback, and Brian Eno’s legendary Oblique Strategy cards.

The Orielles will be performing Tableau live, along with favourites from their back catalogue, with an accompanied string-led section.


Please only book your tickets from official ticket sellers in our dropdown menu, and not secondary market sites, to avoid disappointment.


Join us for Higher Ground, a festival celebrating an all-female line-up of singer-songwriters, genre defying acts and contemporary sounds. Expect impressive live performances from leading international names, DJ sets and more across the day and night at Roundhouse.
