One of the Summer’s most anticipated performances is definitely the Swedish House Mafia set at Creamfields Festival. Although Creamfields blew expectations out of the water with their 2019 lineup consisting of the likes of Calvin Harris, The Chemical Brothers, Adam Beyer and Cirez D B2B and more, the focus is mainly on the three Swedes of Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Steve Angello. Tipped to be their biggest and most special show to date, they haven’t performed at Creamfields since 2011 so to make up for lost time they’re not scaling things down at all, treating it like a separate headlining show of its own. Recently we brought you the news that SHM would be bringing their biggest production yet, but it has been revealed that it’ll be so big that it takes the entire day to build!
With the size of Swedish House Mafia’s production, Creamfields have been forced to close the Arc Stage – one of their two outdoor main stages – right until their SHM set starts at 9:15pm local time (GMT). A move that hasn’t been made by the festival before, there will be no other DJs sharing the stage with Swedish House Mafia on Sunday, in order to give their team enough time to build everything needed for their spectacular performance.
Likely to be the biggest production set that the festival has ever seen, the build will start following Calvin Harris’ closing set on Saturday, and continue on during the day on Sunday too. Looking back on their huge Stockholm hometown shows, it’s easy to see why it will take this long and why the stage will need to be closed for the entire day. Featuring three circles to represent all three members, three other circles that are lit on fire, their special table design for their live equipment and a lot more detailed and large scale aspects, this is set to be one of the biggest events of the entire year and the UK is in for a treat like no other.
Stay tuned for more updates on their Creamfields set when it happens! We can’t wait to see what they pull out of the bag.
