Creamfields 2016 Lineup: Avicii, Jack U, Tiesto, Calvin Harris Headline
One of the UK's largest EDM festivals, Creamfields, has announced its 2016 lineup. Now that Global Gathering has shuttered its doors, Creamfields has the cream of the crop for late summer EDM festival artists and even expanded to a fourth day. Among those headlining the 2016 lineup are Avicii, Calvin Harris, Jack Ü, Armin van Buuren, Axwell /\ Ingrosso, Tiësto, Above & Beyond, Eric Prydz and many more.
Thursday will start with just four stages, three of them hosted by Liverpool-based clubbing brand Cream and the fourth a stage curated by Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano for their Sexy By Nature series. Among those who will DJ on the four different stages include Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman, Kryder, Ben Gold, Eddie Halliwell, Doorly and Redondo.
Friday is still kind of a warmup to the main even the following day with only six stages going. The main stage has not been announced yet, but there will be tents hosted by Andy C and his RAM Records, Cream, Armin van Buuren's Armada and Jamie Jones' Paradise. The wide array of different artists playing will include names like Maya Janes Coles, Delta Heavy b2b with Loadstar, Sam Feldt, Michael Calfan, Andrew Rayel and The Martinez Brothers.
Saturday is when thigs really start to get going and it will probably still be raining across the 10 different tents. There will be two different main stages with names like Nicky Romero, Axwell /\ Ingrosso and Martin Garrix all performing there. US festival brand Hard will host a stage with Jauz, Four Tet, Jack Ü and Destructo on the decks. There will be others throughout the day across the grounds like Hot Since 82, Andrew Bayer, Tchami, Idris Elba and Gorgon City.
Sunday will be even bigger with 12 whole stages including 2 main stages with the likes of Tiësto, Oliver Heldens, Calvin Harris and Duke Dumont at the controls. A dizzying number of other acts who will perform that day include MK, Thomas Gold, Eric Prydz, Kölsch, Paul van Dyk, Camelphat, Tiga, Fatboy Slim and Anime Edge & Dance.
