Creamfields has blazed the trail for electronic dance events over the last two decades. Born in 1998, the original dance festival set out to provide the clubbing world with a bespoke large-scale outdoor event putting DJs centre stage for the first time, and its flagship UK festival has grown from a 25,000-capacity one-day show to the four-day camping behemoth it is today attracting sell-out crowds of 70,000. The success of Creamfields has attracted worldwide attention which has led to the festival being staged around the world since 1999, and has gone on to become one of the few festivals to have successfully established itself in the global market. To date Creamfields has been staged in 22 countries with a series of new territories planned over the next 12 months. The Creamfields line-up for 2020 includes the Grammy Award-winning duo The Chainsmokers who headline on Friday 28 August in a huge UK festival exclusive, along with performances from Armin van Buuren and Pendulum Trinity on Saturday. CamelPhat is headlining the Steel Yard on Sunday, with many more exciting music acts playing across the weekend - view the full line-up so far here. Renowned for attracting the biggest names in electronic music, huge production and iconic staging, each year features over 300 artists performing across 30 stages over the four-day weekend. Some of the big name artists who have performed over the years include Swedish House Mafia, Eric Prydz, Calvin Harris, deadmau5, The Chemical Brothers, Tiësto, Carl Cox, Martin Garrix, Fatboy Slim, Faithless, Annie Mac, Armin van Buuren, The Prodigy, Pete Tong, Sasha, Peggy Gou, CHIC, Daft Punk (DJ set), The Black Madonna and Stormzy, to name a few. Covering every genre under the 'electronic music' banner it's no surprise that Creamfields has won an array of awards over the years including best dance event and best major festival.
