As one of the most renowned electronic music festivals already, Creamfields isn't resting on its laurels in 2016 as they've confirmed there will be an extra day on the bill and a mammoth 28 stages to explore across the four day event. Last year saw the festival sell out for a seventh consecutive year and this summer they're putting on their biggest party to date, making them the biggest electronic music festival in the world. With over 70,000 people in attendance, 2016 is shaping up to be one massive party you wont want to miss.
So exactly who is playing? Among the stage additions you've got the likes of Andy C Presents RAM Records, Sexy By Nature and Cream Classics joining Creamfields main stays such as Paradise, MK Area10 and Mistajam Presents Jam Packed. With so many stages to fill it's no surprise there are over 200 acts playing across the four days with such artists as Calvin Harris, Tiestö, Avicii, Axwell & Ingrosso, Alesso, Jack Ü, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Hardwell, Sasha, Above & Beyond, Martin Garrix, Fatboy Slim, Oliver Heldens, MK, DJ EZ, Chase & Status, Annie Mac, Hannah Wants, Steve Aoki, Eric Prydz, Knife Party, Mistajam, Armin van Buuren, Andy C, Roni Size, Jamie Jones, Tchami, Pete Tong and Kurupt FM - and that's just a small sample.
It's undoubtedly a huge step forward and a real sign of intent from this legendary and award winning festival and Idle HQ couldn't be more excited to take on four days of full frontal bass. Hold tight and keep those eyes peeled for a ticket giveaway coming soon! But, for now, take a glance down the lineup to get yourself fully prepped for what's in store from Thursday 25th to Sunday 28th August.
