Creamfields South 2022: how to buy tickets and how much they cost

Tickets are still available for all fans of electronic dance music planning to attend Creamfields South, one of the biggest festivals in the UK this summer. Groovers will meet at Hylands Park in Chelmsford over the Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend.

Launched by Liverpool club promoter Cream in the late 90s, the famous dance music gathering celebrates its 25th anniversary. To mark the milestone there is the Essex Edition and a Creamfields North, which will take place in Cheshire over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Together they will close the summer festival season. The Chelmsford party will begin on Thursday June 2, with the festivities ending after Saturday night’s performances.
