Creamfields is an electronic music festival, bringing global superstars from the worlds of house, EDM, trance and more to the UK for August bank holiday weekend.
The festival takes place less than 30 miles from Liverpool, the spiritual home of the Cream clubbing brand, whose 1990s club-nights gave rise to the annual outdoor festival that has since gone on to become one of the most popular and renowned electronic music festivals in the world.
Its success has attracted worldwide attention and has led to the festival being staged internationally since 1999. To date, Creamfields has visited 18 countries across the globe.
Year-on-year the festival develops and fine-tunes its spectacular production; and the epic stage constructions, visuals, light-shows and pyrotechnics have now become a integral part of the overall festival experience.
deadmau5 and Eric Prydz will headline Creamfields 2017 by collaborating on an exclusive live show.
The full lineup will be announced in February – 2016's edition featured Calvin Harris, Avicii, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Martin Garrix and Jack Ü.
Deep in Cheshire's idyllic countryside sits the Daresbury Estate, where Creamfields has called home since 2008. Lying midway between Liverpool and Manchester, the venue has quick and easy links between the two cities.Expand Map
