Live Nation Entertainment has launched Electronic Nation, a new division focused on expanding offerings of all electronic genres across the UK. 
Electronic Nation will be led by Scott Barton, the MD of Cream, one of the biggest players in the electronic live event field.
Barton has over 25 years’ experience in the game, handling the likes of Creamfields and Steel Yard festivals, as well as UK touring for some of the biggest names in dance music. 
The new division will be based in London and will encompass all electronic music at Live Nation UK, from Creamfields to artist tours, clubs and shows.
It will be Barton’s role at Electronic Nation to increase Live Nation’s footprint in the electronic arena. 
With Cream, Barton has been growing a club business that is today responsible for multiple tours and club shows across the country, with artists such as deadmau5, Marshmello, Porter Robinson DJ Snake, Above & Beyond, Skrillex, Swedish House Mafia, Calvin Harris, and others.
Creamfields has established itself as one of the biggest electronic music events in the world with an attendance of 70,000 per day. 
The 2019 edition takes place Aug. 22-25 in Daresbury, Cheshire, which is located between Liverpool and Manchester in England. This year’s lineup features UK exclusives by Swedish House Mafia and Calvin Harris. Also on the bill are Tiësto, Annie Mac, deadmau5, Eric Prydz, Carl Cox, The Chainsmokers, Skrillex, The Chemical Brothers, and many more, covering a wide range of electronic genres.
