Cream Boxing Night 2008

  • As the days get darker and we edge nearer the festive season for a month of excusable late nights and hangovers, we are pleased to announce that Cream will be rolling back into town for its annual festive sound clash at Nation on Boxing Night. Having turned away hundreds of people at last weekends 16th Birthday, Cream, who are not ones to rest on their laurels have announced a very special festive line up for their mighty Boxing night bash. The world’s No.1 DJ Armin van Buuren heads up the festivities in the Main Room, this world renowned DJ/Producer will be gracing us with his presence this Boxing night, his first and only visit to the north this year, without doubt one of the worlds best trance DJ’s. He will be joined by rising star John O’Callahan, Cream resident Gareth Wyn and fresh local talent Rob H who made his Cream debut at last week’s birthday. The Courtyard is full of surprises, as we see the return of John Digweed, this will be Johns’ first appearance at Cream in over 8 years! Having smashed the proverbial roof off the Radio 1 Arena at this summers Creamfields festival, John is making a long overdue return to his old haunt to deliver what will undoubtedly be one of the most highly anticipated sets of the clubbing calendar, so much so that Digweed will be performing an exclusive 3 hour set in the Courtyard! Continuing with all things progressive and tech house we welcome the return of Danny Howells. Danny is one of the world’s most travelled DJ’s and we welcome him back for a festive blow out. And culminating the Courtyard line up is former Cream resident Nick Warren, well known for his Global Underground Compilations and one half of Way Out West, Nick is back by demand! The Annexe is all about house! Headlined by Dutch DJ/Producer Laidback Luke, one of the hottest DJ’s of the moment and renowned for his killer remixes and high profile collaborations. He will be joined by the ever cool and energetic Jon Carter, if ever there was a DJ that made this room his own, Jon is it! Another former resident making a return is Justin Robertson, the sleuth master is back where he belongs in the Annexe, his former stomping ground. Other DJ’s confirmed include Liverpool legend John Kelly and Cream residents Lee Ellis & Anthony Probyn. As always Cream Boxing Night is expected to sell out.
