Avicii's Levels

Creamfields to honour Avicii with orchestra tribute

Following the passing of Avicii in April 2018, the whole dance music community has spent the remaining months mourning the loss of EDM’s greatest superstar. But with just 7 weeks remaining until the start of Creamfields – the UK’s biggest dance music festival – the Daresbury event has something very special planned in honour of the Swedish maestro.

Taking place on Saturday 25th August, a 40-strong orchestra will perform at Creamfields for the very first time – no doubt spurred on by Pete Tong‘s recent involvement with the Heritage Orchestra – as dance music and classical music meet. It won’t be the first time the two genres have crossed in such a seamless motion, with trance trio Above & Beyond recently releasing two very special orchestral albums, as well as deadmau5 dropping a new release known as ‘Where’s The Drop?’, an orchestral reimagining of the Canadian’s biggest hits.

Following the death of Avicii (aka Tim Bergling), Creamfields have told fans that the orchestra will be performing a very special live tribute to the greatest DJ of modern times, who played on the Creamfields main stage many times during his career; most notably 2012 (a set which was later used by BBC Radio 1 as an essential mix) and 2016, when he closed the Horizon stage just 24 hours before his final set of all time; at USHUAÏA Ibiza.

Making the switch over from an established career in sports journalism to the world of dance music in 2016, Jake Gable has cemented a spot as one of the industry's most in-demand names during his tenure to date. Working on highly successful press campaigns for the likes of Tiësto, MK, and many more during his time at one of London's most premiere PR outfits, Gable has also proved his hand as a skilled journalist, interviewing acts such as Oliver Heldens, Martin Solveig, NERVO, and many more at international events like EDC Las Vegas, Tomorrowland, Creamfields, and Amsterdam Dance Event. Working tirelessly as the CEO & Founder of UK company The EVENT, Gable also doubles up as a tour manager, playlist curator, dance music influencer, and DJ, under his JK-GBL alias. Further adding strings to his bow as a freelance copywriter - where he has worked for numerous iconic artists such as Axwell, and labels, such as Third Party's Release Records - Gable is best known for producing two of the biggest editorials in We Rave You history; The first a breaking news story on Swedish House Mafia's return at Miami's Ultra Music Festival in 2018 (a world exclusive), and the second titled 'Avicii: The Truth...', an inquest into the EDM star's passing, published less than 24 hours after his death.
