Relive Avicii’s Essential Mix from Creamfields 2012

Performing at Creamfields in 2012, Swedish legend Avicii’s set was widely acknowledged as one of his greatest ever, as he took to the mainstage on Saturday evening of the 3-day spectacular. Whizzing through an electric 60 minute setlist that included Rudimental opener ‘Feel The Love‘ and the Otto Knows remix of ‘Lies‘ by Burns, the Stockholm-born producer proved to be the must-see act of the day, as rain tipped down upon the Daresbury crowd.

Using the performance as their ‘Essential Mix’, BBC Radio 1 soon snapped up the set, which was premiered by the legendary Pete Tong on his iconic Friday night show. Playing huge anthems like Tujamo‘s ‘Who‘, and his own bootleg of David Guetta vs Florence & The Machine (Sunshine/Spectrum), Avicii’s set also included music from Axwell, Sander van Doorn, and Eric Prydz, and was praised by all sections of the dance music community for how dynamic, and diverse, the set proved to be.

Following Avicii’s death on Friday 20th April in Muscat, Oman, you can relive the Swede’s incredible performance below, and check the full tracklist here, courtesy of our friends at 1001Tracklists.
