For every hour lost through the advent of British Summer Time over the past weekend, you can bet your bottom Euro that a Festival line-up will get announced and Creamfields has done just that with a bit of a jaw-dropper, truth be told. David Guetta, Deadmau5, Armin Van Buuren, Paul Van Dyk and Tiesto head up the big boys this year.
Taking place over the late August Bank Holiday weekend, 28th and 29th to be exact, Creamfields will fire it up in Daresbury, halfway between Runcorn and Warrington and tickets will cost £100 for earlybird Standard Weekend Camping Earlybird Ticket (Sat morning to Monday morning), or a Two-Day No Camping Ticket.
There are other Day tickets available (Sat only for £59 and Sunday only for £55) as well as Hospitality tickets allowing you access to the hospitality, arenas and luxury camping areas (£185). There is even an option to have a supplied tent erected for you so you can head straight on over and party (Tangerine Fields option) - sure, it's extra but hassle-free.
The line-up starts the party at 4pm on Saturday. Times are to be confirmed but the main names above plus trance-legend Ferry Corsten, Audio Bullys, Calvin Harris, Sasha, Sven Vath, Dubfire, Axwell (part of the Swedish House Mafia area) and Leftfield occupy the two main stages across the two days, while elsewhere on Saturday you will have Plastikman, Eric Prydz, Funk D'Void and Pete Tong heading up the dance areas and Andy C, High Contrast, Switch and Mad Professor playing out in the APE and Mixmag tents.
Sunday welcomes an 'Annie Mac Presents' event with the lady herself plus Zinc, Ms Dynamite and Major Lazer and also a 'Goodgreef' hard-house spectacular with Lisa Lashes, Showtek and Anne Savage as part of the line-up.
Tickets are on sale now.
