Creamfields festival 2017 guide

Join the dance music massive for four days of beats at one of the UK’s biggest festivals

By Alexandra Gerrity

First things first: when is Creamfields festival 2017?

It takes place from Thursday August 24–Sunday August 27 – the August bank holiday weekend – in Daresbury, Cheshire.

Who’s on the Creamfields festival line-up?

The bumper line-up features dance music moguls Deadmau5 and Eric Prydz performing together in the UK for the first timeSeth Troxler, Goldie, Pendulum (DJ set), Chase & Status, Stormzy, Fat Boy Slim, Diplo and Loce Dice will also perform.

What’s the vibe?

Creamfields is basically the Glastonbury of dance music – so don’t forget your wellies. Every year the Creamfields line-up groans with heavyweights, and dance music fans from across the country make the yearly pilgrimage to worship at the altar of DJ demigods, underground spin-masters and slinky house producers. Those who make it through to the Sunday curfew are members of an exclusive club, and since the fest has stretched to four days, there’s an extra-elusive gold star in it for you.
