Creamfields Brief History
Creamfields 2019 This world-renowned festival is just around the corner, so let us start this preview with a little bit about how the Creamfields name has grown to become the behemoth it is today.
It all started in 1998 in Winchester, sponsored by Liverpool’s Cream Nightclub and hosting a modest 25,000 attendees. Between 2004 and 2016, Creamfields took the title of the UK’s Best Dance Festival/Event nine times. And now we are seeing the results of two decades of hard work and revision.
Today, Creamfields has expanded its reach far beyond the British isle and hosts festivals across the globe including events in Chile, Spain, China and Taiwan!
This year at Creamfields the lineup is nothing short of exceptional. Having become such a massive name has its perks; one being the ability to bring in top names in dance music.
Expect to see some of the best including Amelie Lens, Carl Cox, Jamie Jones, Calvin Harris, Tiesto, The Chemical Brothers, Eric Prydz and so many more!
To put this simply, the 2019 lineup is absolutely stacked. Covering a diverse selection of genres like House, Techno, Trance, Big Room, Hardstyle, Drum & Bass, Electro, and even some Dubstep/Trap, fans from all lengths of the electronic spectrum are sure to be satisfied.
This lineup is the epitome of the UK’s thriving EDM scene; don not sleep on the wonder that is Creamfields. We cannot wait to see what comes out of the sets labeled as “UK Exclusive” from deadmau5, Calvin Harris, Swedish House Mafia, Tiësto, and the alluring duo of Adam Beyer ◻ Cirez D.
Did we mention that Creamfields is only one month away?
The daily lineups have been released so now there is far more information to go on when planning out the weekend. For those EDM lovers out there who only want to see specific performances, now’s the time to make the move. Tickets are going fast and the festival weekend is closing in.
Here are a few sets we are excited for each day:
Cedric Gervais – Fan or not, nearly everyone has heard Cedric Gervais’ enormously successful remix to the “Summertime Sadness” by Lana Del Ray in a collaboration with CID which landed him a grammy for ‘best-remix’ in 2013. This house DJ will surely keep attendees dancing at Creamfields.
Thomas Gold – This producer has built a reliable name for himself in the dance music industry over the past decade. He has made appearances at huge festivals like Tomorrowland, Ultra, and Coachella. Prepare for the show and check out his 2017/2018 mix under Armada.
Chocolate Puma – Legends amongst the DJ community, this Dutch duo has been wrecking the game for nearly three decades. Having produced under various names, the most recent Chocolate Puma has grown to be their final evolution. Find this pair regularly playing at top clubs/festivals.
Eric Prydz – The world has waited with anticipation for the chance to experience the long-foretold VOID performance at the Steel-Yard by Eric Prydz. The Swedish DJ has released under multiple aliases – one being Cirez D who will be making an appearance as well at Creamfields playing back-to-back with Adam Beyer on Sunday. Both sets qualify as a must-see.
Deadmau5 – Pronounced (Dead-Mouse) is one of the most prominent and albeit recognizable figures in dance music, and not just because he wears a mouse helmet. He will be headlining Creamfields this year and premiering his awaited production: Cube v3, at Arc stage, which will be an unforgettable experience.
Amelie Lens – Belgian producer Amelie Lens is a techno goddess and will undoubtedly steal some souls at Creamfields this year. She is relatively new to the game yet already has her own label, Lenske; check out her recent EP “Hypnotized” and get excited for her set at Silo stage.
Calvin Harris, the Scottish producer, whose name is known around the world for his countless hits like “Summer” and “This Is What You Came For,” will introduce his return to the festival circuit as. Saturday’s headliner at Creamfields this year at Arc stage, thus this will be an explosive, UK exclusive performance to set the bar for his continued dominance.
Above & Beyond, british trio and founders of the widely successful Anjunabeats record-label will be performing with a substantial group of their “Anjuna-fam” on Saturday including Ilan Bluestone and Gabriel & Dresden. These trance legends will bring a magical performance to the Steel-yard, with their own stage no-less, so be sure to stop by.
Rez, “Space Mom“, as she is commonly referred by her loyal, and rapidly growing fan-base, will be performing at Creamfields this year on the Generator stage. Also, this Ukrainian producer is going to spice up the festival by bringing her unique genre-defying sounds. Furthermore, many have tried and failed to label her style from techno to space-bass, and as a result, in a 2017 Tweet she responded, “I guess you can just call it ‘rezz.'”
Swedish House Mafia is back. The largely famous trio comprised of Axwell, Steve Angello, and Sebastian Ingrosso will be performing all year on their reunion tour. Also, those going to Creamfields who lucky enough to see them headline on Sunday are in for an amazing experience. It will be a high-energy, UK exclusive set on the Arc stage; after such a long hiatus, this tour will be memorable.
Tiësto, also known as the “Godfather of EDM,” Dutch DJ Tijs Verwest aka Tiësto has been living amongst the stars for quite some time now, and he broke the charts recently with pop-banger “Jackie Chan.” A veteran in the industry with the ability to win his crowds consistently, Creamfields will see a wicked, festival-exclusive, performance on Sunday at Horizon stage.
Fisher, few artists bring the same carefree energy to each performance as Australian tech-house producer Paul Fisher (aka Fisher). His 2018 single “Losing It” became an international house-staple, and his recent banger “You Little Beauty” satisfied his anxious fans. Also, with a huge personality that can be simply described as ‘fun,’ be sure to go wild for Fisher’s Sunday set at Generator.
This is a safe-space and will provide counseling on anything from sexual health to advice on potential drug-use. Furthermore, this amazing offering will be available to all attendees 24 hours every day of the festival.
These places will act as a great resource both for group meetups and for providing general information. They will also be staffed 24 hours/day.
