Like fields of cream looks to 2022 to celebrate its 25th anniversary, festival organizers aren’t just gearing up for the annual weekend of festivities in the final days of summer – they’re also bringing some warmth to the weekend of June Jubilee. Announced earlier this year, South Creamfields will see the biggest dance music festival in the UK Hylands Park in Chelmsford to June 2-4 for a weekend full of stunning artists.

The 50,000 capacity event is expected to feature seven music stages, one of which will be the enormous Steel Yard superstructure, and will also offer three days of camping. Thousands of people hoping to attend already started signing up for the presale as soon as it was announced, and that number is expected to grow exponentially now that they’ve revealed the first artists who will be performing.

Two legends of dance music, David Guetta and calvin harris, sit atop the initial roster just revealed by Creamfields South and are set to play on Friday and Saturday. But that’s just a taste of what’s to come, as others, including Amelie Lens, Becky Hill, CamelPhat, carl coxswain, Charlotte de Witte, deadmau5, fat boy Slender, and Jamie Jones are also set to perform with over 150 artists yet to be announced.

Thinking of heading to Chelmsford in June for the first edition of Creamfields South? Head to their website to register for early access to tickets and camping passes on November 30 at 9 a.m. GMT ahead of the general sale which starts at 10 a.m. GMT the same day.
