Summer hasn't even started yet, but already the unofficial end of summer party has announced its line-up.
Creamfields will take place this year on Saturday 26 August at Daresbury, Halton, near Liverpool, and will feature an eclectic blend of dance music acts and DJs.
The Prodigy are headlining the
mainstage, alongside Gnarls Barkley,
Goldfrapp, and The Zutons.
The world's no.1 DJ as voted in DJmag's Top 100 DJs poll 2005, Paul van Dyk, will be playing in the 10,000 capacity Cream & Goodgreef arena alongside Ferry Corsten, Tiësto, Paul Oakenfold, Eddie Halliwell, Armin van Buuren, Marco V and Adam Sheridan.
Erick Morillo's Subliminal Sessions crew are hosting a tent, and will showcase Swedish house mafia Sebastian Ingrosso, Axwell, and Steve Angello.
Belgian DJ posse 2manyDJs are headlining a Chibuku arena, and will play alongside Canadian producer Tiga, and the Plump DJs.
A new arena called Circus & Cream Audio Deluxe will see Layo & Bushwacka!, Mylo, Timo Maas, Yousef, Roger Sanchez, Hernan Cattaneo and X-Press 2 all DJ.
Hard dance fans will be happy to know that Tidy will be hosting their own arena again this year, with all the biggest hard house DJs expected to perform.
There's a distinct lack of techno or electro at this year's Creamfields - only M.A.N.D.Y. and Erol Alkan are booked to play at the event, in Strongbow's Ciderhouse tent.
But with a new location, and a massive DJ line-up DJmag expects Creamfields will be just as busy as it always is.
