Creamfields Announce More Acts & Arenas

Posted on 26 July 2011 by Mizzle

Festival season will soon be upon us and Creamfields have announced even more acts and arenas to their every growing line up.

Having  announced an extra day for campers Creamfields are pulling out all the stops to deliver a jam packed weekend of entertainment. This year includes Strongbow who return with an impressive DJ and Live Music line up all performing under the legendary yellow roof and featuring the best cutting edge talent on the circuit which includes DJ performances from Jaguar Skills, Brodinski, Kissy Sell Out, Zinc, Goldierocks, Louis La Roche, Maxxi Soundsystem, Marc Roberts, Rory Phillips, StopMakingMe, General Jimmy and Mr Paul plus live performances from disco-house legends Retro/Grade, Balearic don Chad Valley, pioneering beatsmith Star Slinger and live dub-step from Dansette Junior. They will also be bringing their Festival Pub Build to the fields of Daresbury in the form of The Graft & The Glory Pub, a unique festival boozer which offers everything a festival reveller could ask for. So whether you want to mingle in the pub, dance stage side or kick back in the pub garden be sure to pop in for a pint!

Other acts just announced include DJ/ Producer and Tiёsto collaborator Hardwell, Dutch DJ/Producer du jour Oliver Twizt who joins Laidback Luke in his Super You&Me Arena and Italo/disco kings Serge Santiago and Tom Neville aka Retro/Grade who return on Sunday for a DJ set joining David Guetta and Afrojack on the Main Stage.

This year we welcome back the Mixmag Future Heroes Arena which will be taking pride of place in an all new ‘Igloo’ structure which offers the ultimate immersive party experience. Mixmag doesn’t just report on the biggest names in dance, they also nurture new talent and break new acts. As part of their commitment to kick-starting the careers of tomorrows headliners they have pulled together some of the most exciting new DJ’s in clubland including D.O.D, Igor Project, Ricochet Musica, Nelly, Anthony Probyn, Jemmy, Ed Mackie, James Dutton plus more.

The IglooVision Arena which first debuted at Glastonbury features a panoramic graphic environment which will be specially adapted in real time to suit the mood and music of the performance. Festival goers will be treated to a 360 degree video wall that comes alive, changing from underwater to flaming hot club scenes – this is as close to becoming ‘Tron’ as you’ll ever get and an audio visual feast not to be missed.

On Sunday IglooVision becomes the Residents Arena which will see performances from some of the UK’s best loved Resident DJ’s including H2, Tim Owen, Adam Helliwell, Anton Powers, Thomas Tuft, Steve Parry, Sean Hughes, Lee Rands, Andy Woods and more. Back by demand is Jägermeister who return with two of their specially concerted ex-military beats, the first of their beasts is the Jäger Rock Truck, which converts into an outdoor stage and will be showcasing performances from the likes of LMP DJ’s, Ellesse, Mark Mac, Paul Nunn & James Glover, Dash, Sam Rice, Zutekh, Denny Dowd, Autophase and more, whilst the second truck The Jägertruck will be the base for festival goers to enjoy an Ice Cold Jäger shot whilst watching and foot tapping to the beat.

Following the announcement of an extra day added for campers, existing 2 day camping ticket holders who wish to upgrade to a 3 day camping ticket are reminded that this is a limited offer, and available on a first come first serve basis and are being urged to contact their ticket agent to upgrade as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Creamfields – Extra day for Campers!

Posted on 21 May 2011 by Mizzle

Due to demand, Creamfields has announced a third day and will now open its gates for all you campers on Friday 26th August! Creamfields becoming a 3 day camping event will not only improve ease of access to the site for festivalgoers but there will also be an array of entertainment on offer within the main event site:

*That Mixmag Thing Silent Disco*
Scratch Perverts
Brookes Brothers
Futurebound
Clique DJ’s

*Size Matters Silent Disco*
Screening Swedish House Mafia’s ‘Take One’ Movie
Tim Mason
Third Party

Friday campers will also be able to chill out at the festival’s on-site cinema which will be showing a collection of iconic clubbing films as well as enjoying all the fun of the fair, stalls and more. Access to the event on Friday is limited and only open to festival goers camping at the event. Any existing camping ticket holders wishing to purchase a Friday ticket for £20 (standard) / £30 (hospitality) should contact their ticket agent to book.

Demand from fans to introduce a Friday opening has been high since Creamfields became a two day camping event in 2008. Selling out in record time over the last 2 years, 2011 is already on course to eclipse last year’s success.

So if I were you, I would get booking the Friday ticket so you don’t miss out on all the fun!
