Cream Of The Crop
The latest confirmation is Creamfields, which will feature performances from The Prodigy, Goldfrapp, DJ Shadow, Paul Van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Gnarls Barkley and dozens more August 26.
Creamfields is moving to a new location for its ninth anniversary, at Daresbury in the northwest English countryside.
The main stage lineup will feature The Prodigy, Goldfrapp, Gnarls Barkley, and The Zutons. Van Dyk and Oakenfold head up a lengthy list of DJs in the Cream & Goodgreef Arena that also includes Armin Van Buuren and special guest Tiesto.
The Subliminal Sessions and Chibuku arenas will once again fill with house and techno beats from the likes of Erick Morillo and 2 Many DJ’s, and even more DJs will descend on the Tidy Arena, now in its third year.
Several new venues are on the bill, including the Circus & Cream Audio Deluxe Arena – featuring Roger Sanchez, Timo Maas and more – and the hip-hop-oriented Scratch Perverts: Beatdown, where DJ Shadow will be joined by Andy C, Planet Pendulum & MC Verse and more.
Also on the schedule are Coldcut Live, Erol Alkan and more at the Strongbow Ciderhouse Arena, Hacienda & Cream Classics presenting Peter Hook and more in the Hospitality Arena, and still more music at the Aftershock Arena, Galaxy Outdoor Stage, and Gurn.net Classic Camper Outdoor Stage.
Last year’s Creamfields attracted a good 40,000 fans and organizers are expecting attendance to grow at the new expanded site.
