Creamfields / 23rd-26th August 2018
Creamfields is the UK’s biggest dance music festival, winning the ‘Best Dance Event’ award eight times. The festival has now become a four-day affair and will continue this trend this coming August bank holiday weekend. In 2016 Creamfields won the ‘Best Major Festival’ award, seeing off Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds and the Isle of Wight Festival. It is the first time a dance music festival has won the ‘Best Major’ award. 2017 saw the festival celebrate its twentieth anniversary and so it is now down to organisers to top one Creamfields’ best ever years.
Helping to cement that is 2018’s incredible roster of the world’s very best DJs and producers. Techno boss Adam Beyer, legendary DJ Armand Van Helden, garage master DJ EZ, grime artist Giggs, house duo Groove Armada and EDM star Martin Garrix all take spots on this year’s bill. Creamfields’ has an unrivalled lineup and gives dance music lovers an opportunity to see all of these artists in one place.
