Organisers of Creamfields have announced more artists as the renowned dance festival prepares to return to Daresbury, Cheshire, over the 2021 August Bank Holiday weekend.

The festival will welcome huge names from across the electronic music scene, including Swedish DJ Eric Prydz with his innovative Holosphere, Canadian producer deadmau5, acclaimed Dutch DJ Martin Garrix and British house and techno pioneer Carl Cox.

The line-up will also welcome German happy hardcore stars Scooter, English singer, producer and rapper Example, and British house DJ Hannah Wants, among others.

Creamfields first began in 1998, welcoming headliners Sasha, Paul Van Dyke and Daft Punk to its initial Hampshire location. A year later the festival moved to Cream’s home of Liverpool with Pet Shop Boys and Basement Jaxx taking headline duties.

The festival eventually moved to its current home in Cheshire in 2006, having since seen the likes of Fatboy Slim, The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Swedish House Mafia and Tiësto take top billing.

Consistently growing in size, the festival has become firmly established as one of the premiere electronic music events across the globe, welcoming artists from all corners of the scene plus regular friends of the genre.

Since launching in 1998, Creamfields has spread globally, with outings in South America, mainland Europe, Australia and New Zealand. The festival has taken home many awards celebrating its vibrant atmosphere and eclectic line-up.

Creamfields Festival takes place from 26-29 August 2021 in Daresbury, Cheshire UK.
