The Chemical Brothers headline Creamfields Festival 2011

The Chemical Brothers have been announced as the headliners for this year’s Creamfields festival.

The famous dance number will perform at Daresbury in Cheshire on Saturday August 27, a bank holiday weekend.

Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Swedish House Mafia, Tiesto, Magnetic Man and Josh Wink are other big names confirmed for the festival.

BBC radio 1 is the exclusive radio partner of the festival this year and BBC Radio 1Xtra will have a special arena featuring Digital Soundboy System and Goldie.

It’s been a big year for The Chemical Brothers. They are also headlining RockNess and Wireless festivals this summer and performing at Glastonbury.

They last appeared at Creamfields in 2007 and released their seventh studio album Any further Last year.

The talented duo also recently teamed up with director Joe Wright to score Wright’s boldly original adventure thriller Hana, which stars Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana and Oscar winner Cate Blanchett.
