The original field disco returns once again with a cherry picked lineup of the best dance music for Daresbury on August Bank Holiday weekend.

With the biggest electronic line up you’ll see anywhere this year, if beats, basslines and busting dance moves is your tipple then Creamfields is the festival for you.

Selling out in record time last year – the multi award winning festival attracted a record breaking number of revellers to the Cheshire site.

Headlining Saturday’s North Stage is The Chemical Brothers, they’re the kings of the block rocking beat, there are few acts who can rival their spellbinding, relentless, euphoric, crowd pleasing performance.

This dance festival exclusive will also be Tom & Ed’s last outdoor show in the UK this year. Returning to host his very own Clublife Stage and back by demand is Tiësto, voted the ‘Greatest DJ Of All Time’ by Mixmag readers and attracting a crowd of over 30,000 last year, expect first rate production and a dance music explosion of epic proportions for this UK Festival Exclusive.

Trance devotees unite as the Grammy nominated and globally acclaimed Paul van Dyk returns exclusively to host his very own Evolution Arena, bringing with him a truck load of production for what is set to be a spectacular performance from this dance music heavyweight.

On Sunday we are bringing together two dance titans David Guetta and the Swedish House Mafia. Following an overwhelming year, we’re excited to welcome back the force du jour that is Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso.

Determined to keep things fresh and exciting Cream HQ have introduced two new outdoor stages, to house the many headline acts performing this year, they’ve also introduced a flock of new arenas for your pleasure including one of 2010’s biggest artistes Laidback Luke who will be bringing his Super You&Me party to the fields, as he hosts his very own arena – fancy dress essential.

Steve Angello will be giving festival goers a double helping of Swedish delight as he debuts his own Size Matters Arena on the Saturday and returns on Sunday under his Swedish House Mafia moniker. Techno fans will be pleased to see the return of the Mixmag Presents Cocoon Arena, Sven Väth who celebrates 30 years on the decks this year will be joined by some of the biggest forces in techno including Marco Carola and a very special performance from Josh Wink.

Bass heads and Dub-steppers can take sanctuary in the BBC Radio 1Xtra Arena which makes its debut and features the best of the best from the D&B & dubstep stable.

Other arena hosts include Swedish DJ/Producer Eric Prydz who returns with his peers and label mates to host the Pryda Friends Arena for the second year running. High priestess of the airwaves Annie Mac makes the journey north with a cherry picked line up for her Annie Mac Presents Arena which includes Erol Alkan, Boys Noize, Fake Blood Live, Jack Beats and more.

And it doesn’t stop there, other highlights not to be missed include performances from Calvin Harris who will be making his DJ’ing debut at Creamfields, performing alfresco on Saturday and under canvas Sunday.

On Saturday Dubstep trio Magnetic Man, joins The Chemical Brothers on the North Stage along with one of Urban Music’s breakout stars Katy B, American DJ/Producer and mau5trap signing Skrillex who can claim deadmau5 as one of his biggest fans.
