The band was also included in Q’s 2002 list of ‘50 Bands to See Before You Die.’ The have also won NME Awards for 'Best Dance Act' and 'Best Live Event.'
Paul and Phil Hartnoll’s diverse hits include remixes of Madonna and Kraftwerk and collaborations with soundtrack composer Angelo Badalamenti and Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammet.
Heineken Big Top audiences can expect to hear classic singles like ‘Chime,’ ‘Style,’ ‘The Box,’ and ‘Satan’, as well as songs from their latest studio album, Monsters Exist, released September 2018.
