With festival season just around the corner we’re pleased to reveal the much anticipated line up from Europe’s premier electronic music festival – Creamfields which returns to celebrate 20 years this August Bank Holiday. Having pioneered the dance music genre since its humble beginnings in 1998, it has grown into the musical 4 day, 70,000 capacity behemoth it is today and this year’s line-up is a true reflection of its trail blazing journey.
Hosting over 30 stages and over 300 artists across the weekend it would be quicker to name the few artists who aren’t playing, however, the biggest and the best will be heading to the Cheshire countryside to join in the 20 year celebrations.
Featuring performances from the likes of Above & Beyond, Adam Beyer, Alesso, Andy C, Annie Mac, Armin van Buuren, Axwell & Ingrosso, The Black Madonna, The Chainsmokers, Chase & Status (DJ Set), deadmau5, Dillon Francis, deadmau5 & Eric Prydz join forces for a UK debut and European exclusive live show, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Diplo, DJ EZ, Don Diablo, Duke Dumont, DVBBS, Eats Everything, Eric Prydz, Faithless (DJ Set), Fatboy Slim, Galantis, Goldie, Gorgon City, Hannah Wants, Hardwell, Hot Since 82, Idris Elba, Jackmaster, Jamie Jones, Jauz, Joris Voorn, Kölsch, KSHMR, Loco Dice, Luciano, Malaa, Marco Carola, Marshmello, Martin Garrix, Martin Solveig, The Martinez Brothers, Mistajam, MK, Nicky Romero, Oliver Heldens, Patrick Topping, Paul van Dyk, Pendulum (DJ Set), Pete Tong, Richie Hawtin who delivers a UK exclusive with a new audio-visual performance, titled CLOSE, Sasha, Seth Troxler, Sigma, Steve Angello, Stormzy, Sub Focus, Sven Väth, Tchami, Tiësto and Vini Vici to name a few.
Having pushed the boundaries of event production over the last few years and creating some of the most ground breaking stages, this year will be no different with plans still to be revealed of what they have in store for this, their 20th year so watch this space. Having recently been voted ‘Best Major Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards, beating off heavyweight competition from the likes of Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds and Isle Of White Festival, the first time an electronic music festival has been awarded the coveted ‘Best Major’ trophy, it would seem Creamfields isn’t slowing down for anyone and long may that continue, as we raise a glass to the next 20 years.
