Creamfields is one of the UK’s most popular electronic dance music festivals, founded and organized by UK club promoter Cream. The music festival has featured a dynamic mix of popular musical genres, including house, techno, drums and bass and more, since its inception in 1998.
Fans of Creamfields today might understandably be a little perplexed by the news of a new festival with the same name – Creamfields South.
What is South Creamfields?
There’s a new kid on the block Creamfields thanks to the organizers of Creamfields who wanted to mark a milestone in the history of the festival. To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Creamfields has launched a second festival – Creamfields South.

That means Creamfields fans can enjoy double the fun in a year. Creamfields will henceforth be known as Creamfields North, to create a more marked difference with Creamfields South.
This should simplify things and help clear up confusion between the two events. Although the musical content remains the same at both festivals – a mix of the styles that Creamfields fans have come to love – the main differences will be the date and location.
However, the two Creamfields events will take place on different holidays, giving fans the chance to kick back and enjoy the music over the long weekend with hopefully some sunshine.
Here are the main differences between Creamfields North and Creamfields South
