One of the biggest festivals of the summer just got bigger, as the UK’s premier dance music festival announced its jaw-dropping lineup Feb. 26. Held on the last weekend in August in the rolling Cheshire countryside, Creamfields is always a tough one to beat, but it seems this year they’ve outdone even themselves.
Headliners are spread across two stages and two days, with Avicii, Afrojack, Deadmau5, Martin Garrix, and Steve Aoki on Saturday, and Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Calvin Harris, Tiesto, and Fatboy Slim topping the bill on Sunday.
While that lineup alone makes the festival an enticing prospect, the various other arenas and tents turn it into something really special. It’s a Creamfields debut for the ASOT brand, with Armin and the cream of the Armada crop–from Orjan to Rayel to Cosmic Gate–taking over a tent on Saturday, while Cream themselves will offer up Paul Van Dyk, Ferry Corsten, and Markus Schulz the following day. On top of his main stage appearance, Hardwell will also host his own Revealed stage with W&W, Dyro, and Dannic, among others. Elsewhere, Above & Beyond headlines the Mixmag arena alongside Andrew Bayer, Eric Prydz returns with his Pryda Arena, and Pete Tong goes Pete Tong with Sasha, Claude Von Stroke, and Hot Since 82.
