After a year of hiatus because of the pandemic (read our experience in 2019), one of the biggest festivals in the world is ready to return. Between Liverpool and Manchester in the beautiful Cheshire countryside (Daresbury, Cheshire), Creamfields 2021 is ready to open its door to tens of thousands of visitors. Planned for this weekend, from the 26th to the 29th of August, constructions have already started in the festival area with the main stage, as well as the other structures almost completed.
Surely one of the most awaited moments of day 3, and probably of the whole festival, has been the return of Martin Garrix. He didn’t come to Creamfields alone as he brought a lot of friends from his imprint STMPD. More videos are coming but in the meantime, you can see some sneak peek below. Martin Garrix also played his first set in more than 1 year and a half at Lectric Love Festival yesterday; you can re-live the whole set as well as 6 brand new exclusive records by clicking here.
Day 2: Armin Van Buuren, Nina Kreviz, Patrick Topping, Low Steppa
Another day at Creamfields, another series of incredible videos. On Day 2 music labels take over the stages with Defected and Anjunabeats delivering an incredible lineup. From the Defected stage, you can find below an incredible video of Low Steppa behind the decks. If you’re more into techno, Patrick Topping also brought his incredible sound at Creamfields 2021 (more video coming from Charlotte de Witte and Enrico Sangiuliano as well). You can also find videos of techno queen Nina Kraviz as well as trance king Armin Van Buuren destroying the main stage.
Videos from Day 1: Cristoph, Pryda, and Chemical Brothers
The first full day of Creamfields 2021 is over and we have seen astonishing performances from artists such as Cristoph, Pryda, and more. Below you can find some of the highlights of day 1.
Eric Prydz delivered his incredible performance on the Steel Yard, bringing with him his arsenal of IDs, incredible music, and some brand new songs. Below you can see some videos of Mr. Pryda dropping the iconic Everyday and Rebel XX. He also dropped some IDs from the 2019 HOLO show in London.
Arc Stage ledwall is up and running and technicians are doing the latest configuration and mapping.
Creamfields 2021 mainstage
There never was a real main stage at Creamfields considering how massive Arc and Horizon stages are. Both stages will host insane artists such as The Chemical Brothers, Eric Prydz, Armin Van Buuren, David Guetta, and more. The Horizon stage will also see STMPD label takeover with the one and only Martin Garrix as well as Mat Nash and Tchami as the special guest.
Second stages and tents
Even if they’re not the main stage, tents, as well as Steel Yard and Warehouse, offer a level of planning and greatness not to be underestimated. The lineups are massive too. Steel Yard, for example, will space from hard techno to full house with Nina Kraviz and Carl Cox takeover on the 27th and 28th and a packed house-driven lineup with Solardo, Camelphat, and Eli Brown on Sunday.
