The first edition of Creamfields South will see the UK’s biggest dance festival double in size in June 2022, and it’s already clear that the new edition will be a strong front-runner on the global festival scene, with the first phase of acts just announced featuring a diverse range of the biggest names from across the dance music spectrum.

Calvin Harris, David Guetta, and Fatboy Slim are among the headliners, each of whom has performed at Creamfields before, while Becky Hill will be making her live Creamfields debut. Meanwhile leading the charge on the underground tip is the king of techno himself Carl Cox, legendary Liverpool duo Camelphat, deadmau5, Charlotte de Witte, Amelie Lens and Paradise head honcho Jamie Jones.

It doesn’t get much bigger than this for a first-phase headline announcement, and with over 150 acts still to be announced, performing across seven mind-blowing stages, including the colossal 15,000-capacity Steel Yard superstructure, it’s safe to say Creamfields is going BIG for their twenty-fifth-anniversary celebrations. Creamfields South will be the next best thing for those who missed out on tickets to their annual August Bank Holiday flagship show in Cheshire, which sold out in record time, and for those who want to do the double!

The launch of Creamfields South which takes place at the stunning Hylands Park in Chelmsford from 2nd – 4th June Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend, coincides with the award-winning festivals twenty-five-year celebrations and will kick start the festival season in 2022. As with the first Creamfields in 1998, BBC Radio 1 will be on hand to commemorate the event by broadcasting some of the weekend’s best sets.

With over 100,000 people already signed up for the 50,000 capacity, three-day camping fest, demand for tickets will be high when they go on general sale 10 am Tuesday 30th November. Fans are encouraged to sign up for presale to receive an exclusive link an hour before tickets go on general sale at 9 a.m. via
