Unlike the other festivals I’ve previewed, Creamfields is specifically tailored to a specific audience and doesn’t necessarily cover a lot of genres like rock or rap. It does however have the most diverse range of electronic music you can ask for, from pop heavy EDM stars like Avicii and Tiesto to heavy hitting bass artists like Breach or Chuckie.
Otherwise known as Electronic Dance Music, EDM is where you will find the more pop savvy mainstream music of the festival, king of poppy/dance music at the moment; Calvin Harris, is set to headline the Sunday, with the likes of Alesso, Tiesto, Hardwell, Duke Damont and Afrojack all looking to echo the massively popular sound hitting the charts all year round.
Looking to cement his stranglehold on the world with yet another headline spot, Avicii marks his return with a second consecutive place at this year’s Creamfields Festival. The timeless Eric Prydz is another big name of dance ready to get the crowd stomping, as well as Otto Knows and Sub Focus.
Carrying on with the theme of big name acts, the energetic long haired DJ that is Steve Aoki brings his flamboyant colourful set to Creamfields, at the hope of living up to the North Stage headline spot from the elusive Deadmau5.
Like last year, Creamfields has once again assembled a lineup of the world’s biggest stars from established pioneer Fatboy Slim to the one hit wonders like Martin Garrix and Route 94.If you like your dance music you won’t find a better lineup than at this year’s Creamfields- this is as good as it gets.
