One of the UKs biggest festivals has launched the hottest lineup since its debut in 1998 as it is set to star over 300 global artists to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

This August Bank Holiday, Creamfields will return to the Cheshire countryside of Daresbury for a four-day frenzy, holding up to 70,000 ravers across 30 unique stages.

Recently being voted as ‘Best Major Festival’ by the UK Festival Awards, outdoing Glastonbury, Reading and the Isle of Wight Festival, Creamfields will surely reach zenith this summer after releasing what is a stunning lineup.

Having pioneered the dance music genre since 1998, with its first performers being the likes of Run DMC and DJ sets from Daft Punk, 2017 will see Martin Garrix, Fatboy Slim, Galantis, The Chainsmokers…and 300 more live sets and DJs.

A Creamfields representative said: “Having pushed the boundaries of event production over the last few years and creating some of the most ground breaking stages, this year will be no different with plans still to be revealed of what they have in store for this, their 20th year so watch this space.”

Exclusively to Creamfields 2017 will be a UK debut and European live show performed by six-time Grammy Award nominee, deadmau5, and UK chart topper, Eric Prydz, who was formally part of Swedish House Mafia.

Considering Mr Prydz has a fear of flying, and mainly uses tour buses, folks going to Creamfields should appreciate his attendance, especially coming from LA!

If you thought this wasn’t enough, Creamfields will deliver all festival-goers with another exclusive set.

Titled CLOSE, Richie Hawtin will present a UK exclusive with a new audio-visual performance unlike any other.

Presumably to be a follow-up from Hawtin’s summer of 2012, where he first presented ENTER, his experimental event at Space in Ibiza, CLOSE will surely be a spectacle.

Creamfields are currently offering a monthly instalment payment for the summer festival, and all information and ticket prices can be found at
