Creamfields

24th-25th August

First up we have the mighty Creamfields. Undeniably one of the worlds biggest and most impressive dance festivals, Creamfields was there at the start, being one of the first big events to attempt the clubbing experience in a large outdoor area, and boy are we glad they did! With guest appearances from the zenith of dance music producers and DJs, sets from The Prodigy (in their only UK appearance this year), Avicii, Above & Beyond, Steve Angello, Eric Prydz, Annie Mac, Duke Dumont, Skream & Benga, Tiesto and Paul van Dyk to name a few, Creamfields is looking particularly tantalizing this year.
