Creamfields returns in all its glory to kick off another 3 day festival extravaganza on August Bank Holiday weekend, it's the time of year when Daresbury in Cheshire becomes the centre of the universe for electronic music fans as they flock from all
corners of the globe to attend the world's best dance festival - and this year Creamfields have secured quite possibly their biggest DJ line up ever for the final fling of the summer.
First up is Canadian electro pioneer deadmau5 - this stadium selling artist has well and truly transcended the superstar DJ frontier and he returns to Creamfields for his last UK festival performance of the year on Sunday's North Stage.
Headlining the South Stage on Saturday will be Avicii, Some things are worth the wait and as one of the most requested acts over recent years this Creamfields debut will undoubtedly be one that goes down in festival history.
Having attracted over 25,000 people for his performance in 2011 we're pleased to welcome back TiÃ«sto who returns to host his own Clublife stage and having secured the No.1 spot in the DJ Mag Top 100 and two Grammy nominations the mighty David Guetta takes the helm of Saturday's North Stage.
It's undoubtedly been an apocalyptic year for Creamfields regulars the Swedish House Mafia who this year are focusing on their 65,000 capacity show at Milton Keynes Bowl, however, fear ye not as Creamfields has snared them back, this time Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso return to the fields of Cream to perform solo.
Grammy award winning breakout star Skrillex performs under canvas this year as headliner of the BBC Radio 1Xtra arena, with his unique brand of dub-step, electro and glitch which has caught the imaginations of the planet's dance-floors over the last 12 months it's with great pleasure we welcome him back.
Other highlights come from the Grammy nominated and globally acclaimed Paul van Dyk who jets in from his Cream Ibiza residency just for the occasion, along with one of the most discerning trance outfits in the business Above & Beyond and the mighty Ferry Corsten.
We see the return of everyone's favourite flying Scotsman Calvin Harris who joins deadmau5 on the North stage plus a live performance from singer / rapper / musician / producer extraordinaire Example.
