The Chemical Brothers confirmed to headline Creamfields 2021

Creamfields, the UK’s largest dance festival, has announced The Chemical Brothers headlining this summer’s edition.

In social media posts, the festival revealed that Dance Pioneers will close the festival’s North Stage on Friday, August 27.

“Imagine dancing in a field with 70,000 of your best friends. We can’t wait! Hold on Creamfields 2021!” the duo said of the announcement.

The news comes just a day after David Guetta was announced as the weekend’s headliner on Saturday, the Frenchman’s first time playing there in eight years.

The festival, which hopes to return this summer after the coronavirus pandemic forced its cancellation in 2020, runs from August 27-29 and is already sold out. Visit the event official site for more information.

In place of their regular event last summer, Creamfields held a virtual “house party edition”, which saw the broadcast of over 40 of their favorite sets from the entire history of the festival.

Other names already on the bill this summer include Bicep, Chase And Status, Deadmau5, Example, Nina Kraviz and Tiesto.

Earlier this week, meanwhile, The Chemical Brothers shared a new mix, on which they explore their love of dub music. The hour-long mix is ​​the first in a planned series of themed mixes by the production veterans as they launch a new “Radio Chemical” station for Sonos Radio.

The Chemical Brothers were among a number of high-profile artists to be named hosts of their own Sonos shows in January. The likes of Björk, FKA Twigs and D’Angelo also joined the list.

Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons said of the project: “We are delighted to bring you a selection of some of our favorite music – an in-depth exploration of our record collections. Hope there is something for you no matter what time you tune in. Keep listening to exclusive DJ mixes that will explore some of our musical passions.
