Creamfields 2018 sets up stage clash between Tiësto, Martin Garrix, Eric Prydz, and Alesso

Undoubtedly one of the world’s finest electronic festivals, Creamfields has cemented a reputation over the past two decades as the jewel in the UK festival crown, packing their line-ups with the very biggest and best names from across all genres of EDM. However, with the 21st anniversary of the event approaching this summer, fans will be faced with a tough decision on the festival’s final day.

Following performances from the likes of Carl Cox, Martin Solveig, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso, and many more across Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, the Daresbury based festival will come to a spectacular finale on Sunday 26th August. But with a selection of the industry’s biggest names all performing on separate stages between the closing slot of 9.30pm to 11pm, ravers face a tough task in deciding which name to see.

Just like last year, Tiesto will headline the Arc Stage at the same time as Martin Garrix, who occupies the other main stage (Horizon). Meanwhile, Alesso will follow Tchami x Malaa‘s ‘No Redemption’ performance in the Mega Arena, with MK headlining his Area 10 tent at the same time, and trance legend Paul Van Dyk also closing out the Pepsi Max Arena. As ever, the good people of Creamfields have the audience’s best interests at heart, with so many clashes solving the issue of overcrowding, and potential safety issues.

But perhaps one of the most popular Creamfields options may prove to be Eric Prydz Presents HOLO, with the Swedish maestro’s brand new concept taking place in the Steel Yard, the very same venue he performed his EPIC 5.0 performance in May 2017. So where will you be heading, come the evening of 26th August? Tiesto, Martin Garrix, Eric Prydz, Alesso, MK, Paul Van Dyk, or maybe somewhere else? Let us know in the comments below!
