Creamfields 2012 Is Fast Approaching

With this years Creamfields Festival just around the corner it's nearly time to prepare for your weekend of madness!


By Spotlight

The time has come and now you can really begin to get excited for the UK's biggest and most talked about festival... Creamfields! In exactly one month's time thousands of people will be flocking to the renowned camp site in Daresbury, Cheshire armed with a ticket, tent and a pair of wellies - oh and a fist pump practised to perfection of course!

If you haven't jumped onboard yet then you still have time... but only a little, so don't hesitate for too long. The three day event will not only be ram packed with amusements and laughter but it will also be busting at the seams with music from world class acts. The jaw dropping line-up will start from 6pm on Friday 24th August and finish on the evening of Sunday 26th August at 11pm. With performances from the likes of Chase & Status, Skrillex, Richie Hawtin, Avicii, Sebastian Ingrosso, Alesso, David Guetta, Example, Gareth Emery, Pete Tong, Eric Prydz, John Digweed, Sébastian Léger, Maya Janes Coles, Annie Mac, Skream, Benga, Calvin Harris, Paul van Dyk, Laidback Luke, Loco Dice, James Zabiela and Seth Troxler and many more amazing acts it is no great surprise that Creamfields 2012 is selling out fast! 

Now that the final ticket alert has been issued by Cream themselves, they expect the festival to be sold out within a matter of days. However you can still grab 'Hospitality 2 and 3 day camping tickets' - we recommend that you do so as soon as possible. Luxury camping is also available for those with a weekend camping ticket for any of you that fancy partying in style... check out the Creamfields' Website for more information and options.

With so many acts to choose from here at Spotlight we have selected a few from each day which we would highly recommend... Although there is still no harm in frantically running from stage to stage to grab a bit of all the action!

FRIDAY 24TH AUGUST

UNION - SILENT DISCO

Kissy Sell Out
UNION
Engine-Earz Experiment

Check out the UNION SILENT DISCO ARENA which will see Cream favourites, UNION take over one of the festival's Friday night silent disco parties with the diverse sound of eclectic electro to edgy Dubstep performed by a new generation of live musicians. UNION will be joined by Ibiza regular Kissy Sell Out who will bring his electro beats and remixes to the Creamfields' crowd alongside deep Dubstep group Engine-EarZ Experiment who will perfectly pave the way for a weekend which also features dubstep acts such as Benga and Skream. 

SATURDAY 25TH AUGUST

We have chosen not one but two pretty epic picks for the first full day of Creamfields' madness... Size Matters and Pryda Friends

Size Matters

Steve Angello - Exclusive
Pete Tong
AN21 & Max Vangeli
Third Party
Tim Mason
Qulinez
Special Guest: Benny Benassi

Since the news of Swedish House Mafia's split hit the tabloids, internet and gossip columns alike sets from the guys as a collective or on their own are in high demand. So, with Steve Angello giving an exclusive set for Size Matters alongside BBC radio 1 star (and overall global legend) Pete Tong plus AN21 & Max Vangeli, Third Party, Tim Mason, Qulinez and special guest Benny Benassi I think we all know that the Size Matters tent will be rocking from start to finish. 

Pryda Friends

Eric Prydz
John Digweed
Joris Voorn
Maya Jane Coles
Scuba
Sébastien Léger
Jeremy Olander
Fehrplay

As if we couldn't recommend Pryda Friends as one of our top picks... With the likes of Maya Jane Coles, John Digweed, Joris Voorn and Sébastien Léger - just to name a few, on the line-up any of you deep house, tech-house and techno fans will be in musical heaven. 

SUNDAY 26TH AUGUST

The job of choosing a few must sees simply gets harder and harder as the weekend progresses and the final day of Creamfields is definitely going to go off with a bang. We have two more selections for you to check out for Sunday's event...

Cream

Paul van Dyk
Ferry Corsten
John O’Callaghan
Simon Patterson
Jordan Suckley
Adam Sheridan

What Creamfields festival would be organised, partied and enjoyed to the fullest without an arena dedicated to Cream? Well, Trance god Paul van Dyk will jet over from his residency in Ibiza with Cream and entertain the masses in the Cream Arena alongside some of the biggest names and pioneers of thumping, body surging, ear engulfing, fist pumping trance! Ferry Corsten, John O'Callaghan, Simon Patterson, Jordan Suckley and Adam Sheridan will complete the Cream Arena line-up... wow-wee!

M-Nus Presents Enter

Richie Hawtin
Loco Dice
Seth Troxler
Gaiser (Live)
Paco Osuna

Our second choice again caters to the Tech house, Techno and minimal fans as Creamfields welcomes Richie Hawtin and his M-Nus gang as they present Enter. for the first time. After a very successful debut season in Ibiza this summer, Richie Hawtin's new night has created an Enter. era on the White Isle so it is definitely worth checking out what M-Nus and the party will bring to English soil; and with the likes of Loco Dice, Seth Troxler, Gaiser and Paco Osuna teaming up with Richie himself this is going to be insane... Sake's on you!
