- Plastikman, Sven Väth, David Guetta and Leftfield are among those confirmed for the two-day event.
Creamfields will take place this year over August 28th and 29th.
They may host events in destinations as disparate as Australia, Peru and Romania, but Creamfields will always return to their spiritual home in the north-west of England with a whole host of the planet's most recognizable artists in tow.
Taking place in the two-day format Creamfields adopted back in 2008, the Saturday is perhaps most notable for the UK festival debut of Richie Hawtin's Plastikman project, who lines up on the Chibuku stage alongside Erol Alkan, Crookers and fellow Minus cohort Magda. Main Stage duties will be taken care of by David Guetta and Deadmau5, while Cream welcomes along Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten and Eddie Halliwell.
Elsewhere across the Daresbury site that day,Eric Prydz curates his own stage which means Pete Tong and Joris Voorn both spin; Andy C and High Contrast top the bill for Ape's drum & bass effort; and Benga, Rusko and Joker represent the wide world of dubstep.
Sunday meanwhile is looking equally attention grabbing in its roll-call of global names: The Main Stage shakes to the sounds of Tiesto and Calvin Harris, while Paul Van Dyk brings along his Vandit label for a meeting of minds with Cream. Sasha, James Zabiela and special guests Leftfield all join the German mainstay. Cocoon are another German imprint with a stage to play around with: Sven Vath, Dubfire, Marco Carola, Yousef and Raresh will all journey to the north of England as well. The Swedish House Mafia (featuring Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso), Annie Mac Presents (Annie Mac, Major Lazer) and Goodgreef (Lisa Lashes and Showtek) make up the bulk of the action elsewhere that day.
