Featuring former Welwyn Garden City man and now anonymous dubstep and drum and bass sensation Jaguar Skills, the dance festival descends on Daresbury, Cheshire, this August Bank Holiday weekend to celebrate its 15th anniversary with three days of pure and unrivalled electronic music.

The festival’s biggest line-up yet includes Saturday headliners The Prodigy.

As one of the most influential dance acts on the planet, The Prodigy will be headlining the North Stage on Saturday, August 24 for their only UK performance this summer.

Headlining the South Stage on the Saturday will be Swedish phenomenon AVICII.

While AVICII enjoys the fresh heights of fame, one DJ who has been at the top of his game for the past two decades is Tiësto.

A performer who has transcended musical genres, Tiësto continues to be one of the world’s top DJs and he will be returning to Creamfields on the Clublife South Stage on the Sunday.

Continuing Creamfields’ world-class line-up, the festival welcomes back David Guetta, who continues his global domination with one million sales record for his track Titanium ft Sia.

David will be bringing his full scale production and vast music catalogue to close Sunday’s North Stage.

Size Records has become the starting block for many a DJ/producer over the past few years and at its helm is Steve Angello. As one of the most successful electronic producers, Steve’s sets at Creamfields are always epic and this year will be no different.

If that wasn’t enough, organisers have also got his partner in crime, Sebastian Ingrosso, hosting his very first ‘All Mixed Up’ arena on the Sunday.

Headlining the Cream Arena on the closing night will be Paul van Dyk. Paul is a Cream legend, having played for the festival nearly every year since its inception and also maintaining a successful residency at Cream Ibiza.

Further highlights this year include Eric Prydz, aka Pryda, whose February Essential Mix is still a constant on the Creamfields office speakers, plus the ferocious Knife Party who will take to Saturday’s South Stage to treat revellers with their heady cocktail of sounds from dubstep and electro to drum and bass.

They will be joined by the DJ with the Midas touch, Nicky Romero, who recently celebrated his first UK number one with the track I Could Be The One featuring Avicii.

Organisers have also booked Grammy-award winner Afrojack, DJ Mag Top 100 #6 Hardwell, wonderkid Porter Robinson and Refune prodigy Alesso, who is back after that amazing set on last year’s South Stage.

Festival-goers should also listen out for Groove Armada as they will be sure to debut some new tracks in the Nation Arena, as they recently announced that they are heading back into the studio.

Ensuring the stages are kept booming across both days, promoters have put together a delectable line-up of stars including NERVO, Zane Lowe, Zedd, Tommy Trash, Feed Me, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Borgore, Alvaro, Major Look Tom Staar, and Pegboard Nerds.

Shaking things up for this year will be Pete Tong and the new The All Gone Pete Tong Arena, with Sasha ready to drop tracks from his new Involv3r compilation release.

From All Gone Pete Tong to All Mixed Up, the new arena presented by Sebastian Ingrosso, which features himself and Refune artists Alesso and Otto Knows as well as very special guest Armand van Helden.

Whilst Steve Angello and the Size Matters posse will be raising the roof once again with acts Benny Benassi, AN21, Max Vangeli, Third Party, Tim Mason, Quilinez and Wayne & Woods.

Creamfields’ first lady, Annie Mac, has pulled it out of the bag once again with the line-up for the Annie Mac Presents Arena which includes a live performance from the BBC’s coveted Sound of 2013 number two act AlunaGeorge.

The über talented duo will also be joined by breakthrough house producer Julio Bashmore whose infectious melodies are certain to provide the perfect summer festival vibe, and the extremely talented Eats Everything and his cohort Justin Martin.

In addition, Duke Dumont will not only be kicking the party off on Friday in the Snatch Arena but will be keeping it going on Saturday when he joins the Annie Mac Presents Arena bill.

The mighty Richie Hawtin will bring his unique ENTER. Arena concept to Creamfields, providing a Balearic atmosphere on Sunday, complimented by the beats of Loco Dice, Seth Troxler, Gaiser, Paco Osuna and Hobo.

The Pryda Friends Arena will be offering up sets from renowned techno producer Marco Carola, Maya Jane Coles and a debut appearance from Maceo Plex.

When it comes to bass, beats and solid grooves there are two people who never let you down and Skream & Benga have been asked to curate a new arena for Saturday.

Skream & Benga present will feature sets from the men themselves as well as a few of their friends including Ram Records founder Andy C, Redlight, Rustie, Jack Beats, Alvin Risk, Just Blaze, Zinc, Bondax, Clean Bandit, Kidnap Kid, Woz plus many more.

If seven arenas and two stages weren’t enough for Saturday, Mark Knight will also be bringing his Toolroom Arena imprint to Creamfields for the first time, bringing together some of the biggest house stars of the moment including Rising Music’s Chris Lake and his Black Thong collaborating partner Michael Woods, plus Luther star Idris Elba (Driis).

Above & Beyond will present the Anjunabeats Arena in association with Mixmag for the first time at Creamfields, offering plenty of euphoric, hands in the air moments with a little help from Cream legend Paul Oakenfold.

Topping up the trance on Sunday will be the Cream Arena, the festival’s longest standing arena.

Prepare your superhero costumes as Laidback Luke returns with the SuperYou&Me Arena.

And the party doesn’t stop there. Eddie Halliwell will be making sure revellers are fired up.

Whilst Skream & Benga ensure the bass is covered on Saturday, Mistajam will show festival-goers what his Speakerbox imprint has got on Sunday with a headline live performance from Sub Focus and a Creamfields debut for London boys Modestep.

After last year’s success, the Nation concept will go undercover with the Nation Arena in association with Mixmag headlined by Groove Armada, with return performances from Fake Blood and Jaguar Skills.

Providing beats on the harder side of dance is the Goodgreef Xtra-Hard Arena, while Hed Kandi return as hosts of the Hospitality Arena.

Just added to the festival is the new Cream Friends Stage across Saturday and Sunday filled with the hottest rising talent from across the UK.
