Creamfields announce three surprise sets for 2018 festival

Carrying a reputation as one of the most incredible festivals in the world, UK giants Creamfields will celebrate their 21st birthday this year. The August festival, based in Daresbury, near Liverpool, have become known for mind-bending visuals, off the chart special effects, and jaw-dropping line-ups, with the 21st anniversary set to be the most special yet.

This year will be no exception with the likes of Above & Beyond, Eric Prydz, Hardwell, Martin Garrix, and many more, all set to perform across the festival’s many stages, including the iconic Steel Yard venue, and two main stages (The Arc & The Horizon). But now, with just two months to go until the event, British dance giants Cream have dropped the most tantalising hint of all, telling fans that three ‘surprise sets’ would occur at Creamfields 2018 to mark the occasion.

Though Creamfields have remained tight lipped on the speculation so far, various social media channels have been filled with comments from hopeful fans, who believe the rumours may be leading to a Swedish House Mafia performance, after the supergroup performed a similar surprise set at Ultra Music Festival’s 20th anniversary in Miami earlier this year.

With Steve Angello, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso, all already confirmed to play sets at the festival on the Saturday night, could we perhaps see all three unite once again? As always, We Rave You will be the first to let you know if it DOES indeed happen.
