Creamfields announce Tiësto and Above & Beyond as headliners for Steel Yard London 2018

Since forming at the 2016 Creamfields event, when the likes of Marshmello and Jack Ü headlined the arena on the Saturday evening of the weekend festival, the Steel Yard has become a venue synonymous with dance mega-brand, Cream. The dome-shaped structure, made entirely of reinforced metal, has proved a revolutionary venue in UK dance culture, independently hosting events across the British Isles since then, with Swedish giants Axwell Λ Ingrosso headlining a sell-out Steel Yard show in Liverpool last November.

Following the success of that evening, the Steel Yard soon came to London in May 2017, once more hosting the Swedish pair, and Eric Prydz‘s remarkable EPIC 5.0 show during a hectic weekend at Victoria Park, and will once again travel to Liverpool this November to host world number #1 DJ, Martin Garrix, and Armin van Buuren, across two separate events.

Now, Creamfields have delighted ravers in the UK capital with a mind-blowing double announcement for the return of the London Steel Yard across the May Bank Holiday weekend 2018. With trance trio Above & Beyond headlining the Finsbury Park location on Sat 26th May as part of their Common Ground Tour, Dutch legend Tiësto will dominate the arena on Sun 27th May in what will prove to be a truly explosive weekend for dance music fans across London, the UK, and beyond.

The event will mark the first time Tiësto has played an independent show at one of London’s outdoor park locations since his iconic set at Victoria Park in 2010, with the ‘Adagio for Strings’ hero since visiting the UK to play at the now defunct EDC UK in Milton Keynes, and also now defunct Earls Court for his 2013 ‘Greater Than’ tour with Calvin Harris. 

Tickets for these events are sure to sell-out in a heartbeat, so make sure you are online this Thursday (9th November) at 9am to secure your spot at what promises to be one of next summer’s most exciting dance events!
