After having to cancel their 2020 edition like all such large scale live events due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Creamfields took the opportunity to put up a virtual festival at the end of August instead.
Set to be held from August 28-30, Creamfields promises to fill the August bank holiday weekend with “…some of the best sets from Creamfields over the last few years including exclusive never seen before headline sets.”

While Tomorrowland put on a spectacular full-fledged festival just a few weeks ago, others like EDC have had virtual weekends throwing back to previous editions. Lollapalooza which took place just last weekend chose to do a combination. Through their weekend-long festival, they had a mix of some new sets which were live-streamed but also threw in some sets as highlights from previous editions. While we can’t be sure if these exclusive “never seen before headline sets” that Creamfields mentions are newly shot sets or sets from past editions which haven’t been shared or televised before, we’re looking forward to a weekend full of quality music all the same.
Creamfields is also wasting no time in announcing a stellar lineup for their 2021 edition. With some of the biggest names like Eric Prydz, Above & Beyond, and Tiesto among many many more already announced, here is a full low down of the line up released till date.
Creamfields will return to Daresbury, Cheshire from 26th – 29th August 2021.
