a triumphant return to the live events scene
Creamfields: a triumphant return to the live stage [Event Review]
All eyes were recently on UK festival giants based in Daresbury Fields of cream not so long ago, as they prepared for their long-awaited and anticipated return to the live events stage after a year-long absence. We love you was on hand to witness the festivities directly, and we couldn’t be happier to be back in these fields. If Creamfields had proven anything this weekend, it’s that a cancel after cancel setback wouldn’t stop them, and they bounced back bigger and better than ever.
After the usual silent disco festivities on Thursday evening, reserved for first campers only and with animators such as Axtone, it was time to welcome Creamfields to the world for the rest of the campers and non-campers alike. While the lineup had some setbacks in terms of some artists not being able to make it to the UK instead of travel restrictions, that didn’t stop the festival as they quickly found suitable replacements in a quick and efficient manner. adding the likes of Nicky romero, NERVO and Netsky among other surprise additions that kept arriving. Other than that, the festival has done a great job welcoming festival goers to a safe party environment while making them feel like nothing has changed, giving them a break from the difficult state of the world and allowing them to release their energy with their favorite DJ.
Everything fans love and know about Creamfields, the two outdoor stages (Bow and Horizon), amazing stage hosts (Anjunabeats, STMPD, Musical freedom and much more), good vibes and everything in between was back in full force, more than making up for the months of silence. This year, the addition of the Online Sponsor of Used Car Dealers strap on provided new features such as an observation deck from the Arc stage offering phenomenal views and also a place to sit, relax on comfy bean bags and charge phones away from the madness (gives also people a chance to win a free car). Aside from the main attractions – being the performers themselves – Creamfields also offered plenty of side entertainment in the form of daring rides, bars designed to look like old English pubs, stalls to buy all the festival goodies and to those who were camping. , the Creamfields Co-Op supermarket was back and the bouncy chapel that spawned some entertaining content.
Known for taking on big names, Creamfields 2021 was no different, and apart from the usual delicacies such as Martin garrix, Tiësto (with who Phat Camel, Pendulum and others, were the best choices to end Creamfields 2021 with a bang) Olivier Heldens and others, David Guetta was back for the first time in years and released DEAD IN (who also performed on Sunday afternoon) for a gigantic performance of their Future Rave remix of ‘Titanium. ‘ It wasn’t the only name people were happy to see again, because Armin Van Buuren also took to the Horizon Stage on Saturday night to prove he’s back and better than ever.
Overall, Creamfields 2021 was a runaway success, once again bringing people together for partying, great vibes and togetherness. Once again giving the UK dance and events scene a huge sense of hope, it was certainly touching to say the least and the team faced many challenges to put another fantastic edition on their calendar. If, like us, you have a big blues at Creamfields, then luckily you can already register here for the 2022 edition which runs August 25-28. If you don’t want to wait another year, Creamfields is also hosting another 2022 edition in Chelmsford on June 3-4. You can register for this edition here. Until next year Creamfields!
