9 Acts We Want At Creamfields 2018
Written by Lee Hawthorn on 22nd February 2018
Taking place over the August bank holiday weekend, Creamfields is one of the UK’s biggest dance music festivals.
The Chainsmokers, Eric Prydz and Carl Cox are already confirmed acts but who else would you like to see on the bill?
Here’s who Spark and Dance Revolution would love to see on stage!
PBH & Jack Shizzle
This duo have proven king of the remix in the past 18 months. We’ve played a plethora of their interpolations on Dance Revolution, and it’s about time we caught a live set. They did play Creamfields 2017, but we missed them and instantly regretted it. We won’t make that mistake again – especially now their original releases are proving to be at an outstanding quality too.
Let’s be honest, Darren Styles is a must for any major dance music festival line-up. Last year, his demand was so high the crowd was spilling into one of the main stages and resulted in those at the back hearing a mixture of acts. We’d love to see him back in 2018 on a bigger stage.
We’ll never forget seeing Norman Cooke’s balls bouncing around the Creamfields main stage in 2016. For one reason or another, Fatboy Slim always provides at least one highlight of our August bank holiday weekend whenever he’s on the Creamfields line-up. More of that this year please!
Axwell & Ingrosso
When it comes to the biggest DJ’s in the world right now, not many have a back catalogue that can hold a candle to former Swedish House Mafia duo Axwell & Ingrosso. Whether they pull out some classic SHM or unleash an assault of the absolute anthems they’ve released since parting ways with Steve Angello. Since rumours are swirling of a Swedish House Mafia reunion at Ultra Music Festival this year, we’ve got our fingers crossed for a Creamfields appearance of at least two-thirds of the legendary supergroup.
Martin Garrix has the world at his feet. EDM’s youngest superstar headlined in 2017, but given that his stock has only risen since puts him in a good position to be back on the main stage again this year. He also happens to be releasing a new single on the same day as Creamfields’ 2018 line-up announcement so the inner-conspiracy theorist in us calls this a certainty.
Another return, but if it’s not broke, don’t fix it right? Tiesto is a staple of any Creamfields weekend and we hope that it’s no different in 2018. The goosebumps of hearing ‘Adagio For Strings’ just when we play it on Dance Revolution in the studio is spine-tingling, so we need another live dose at this year’s Creamfields.
As the man with the biggest banger of the year, 17, MK is a dead-cert for Creamfields 2018. If he could bring every vocalist under the sun, we’d fully appreciate it and then we can really have a party.
You can’t not love Scooter, right? The German dance group have provided more bangers than we can count over the years and are often the all-important sign-off track in a Dance Revolution playlist. It’s been too long since we’ve experienced Scooter in all their glory live, and Creamfields 2018 would be a perfect place to see them again.
Above & Beyond
If you asked us which one act we need to see at Creamfields not just in 2018, but every single year of the festival – Above & Beyond is the answer. They’re the best at providing a stage-show experience and we need to see them headlining this year’s festival.
