The history of Creamfields

Creamfields first appeared in Winchester in 1998, with live performances from Run DMC and Daft Punk. Since then, music lovers have danced through the festival’s doors in Liverpool and its current home – Daresbury, Cheshire. Over the course of Creamfields’ history it has grown from a one-day dance music event, to a four-day long weekend of live music and partying.

Huge crowds turn out each year to see the biggest names in global dance music over multiple stages. Past Creamfields headliners have included Calvin Harris, Daft Punk, Basement Jaxx, The Chemical Brothers and Avicii, plus iconic artists like Kasabian, Ian Brown and Primal Scream. Creamfields’ popularity has seen versions of the festival held all over Europe, in South America and Mexico, drawing the biggest names in dance music and even bigger crowds.

The iconic festival celebrates its 20th anniversary in style in 2017, with a line-up of dance music royalty. The likes of Martin Garrix, Steve Angello and The Chainsmokers are on the bill, for what’s set to be an unmissable bank holiday weekend of music. The Creamfields campsite opens on Thursday 24th August, until Monday 28th, with the live music taking place Thursday to Sunday.

The Dreamfields luxury camping

If festival portaloos and the thought of assembling your own tent are posing hesitant questions, then Dreamfields luxury camping options are the answer. Enjoy a private VIP area, toilets and warm showers, plus all the fun of the festival. Pre-pitched tents are hassle-free, house 2 to 8 people, and start from just £137. A classic cabin includes comfortable beds, a lockable door, a mirror and room lighting, and costs just £538 for two people.

The amazing live music sets

The Chainsmokers headline the BBC Radio 1 Stage on the Friday night of Creamfields, in the pinnacle of what’s been an incredible few years for the US duo. With a string of top 10 hits worldwide, and now a number 1 US album under their belt, The Chainsmokers are currently on their ‘Memories Do Not Open’ tour. Expect electric drops and endless dance beats from one of the hottest properties in modern dance.

Idris Elba’s DJ set

Award-winning Hollywood actor Idris Elba is on the Creamfields line-up for Sunday. A promising DJ before his hugely successful acting career took off, Elba still performs live music sets, having DJ’ed at Ibiza Rocks among other prestigious venues. With a string of low-key gigs on the cards in the run-up to Creamfields, live music is clearly a passion for the talented London-born actor.
