The Generator holds some 10,000 people. It is a cavernous structure made of scaffold and shipping containers, “giving the arena an industrial feel that has more than a few surprises in store,” according to the promoters.

It’s a multi-tiered venue, with LED walls at the stage and several wall sections doubling as viewing galleries. Operators of the Live Nation-owned festival brand claim the abundance of scaffold and trussing that makes up the structure is “a production designer’s dream.”

It also promises an “abundance of lights, lasers, and pyro that will span the length and breadth of the structure.”

Creamfields won best major festival at the UK Festival Awards 2016 and has been crowned best dance event several times before that. The 70,000-capacity event boasts 30 stages that will host Fatboy Slim,

The Generator isn’t the first superstructure Creamfields UK introduced in 2018. The 15,000-capacity Silo also premieres at this year’s edition.
