Creamfields 2021 Review

by Chris Balding

Madness descended on Daresbury, Cheshire once again this year as tens of thousands of party animals came to Creamfields to watch more than 300 acts over four days. 

After Boris announced restrictions would be lifted in his roadmap, Creamfields was one of the first festivals to reveal they would go ahead this year, much to the delight of fans who missed out last year. Tickets bought last year remained valid this year making the anticipation so much greater.

The who’s who of DJs made an appearance at the UK biggest clubbing event, with sets from Tiësto, Eric Prydz, Chemical Brothers, Carl Cox and Basement Jaxx to name a few. Due to Covid restrictions some acts weren’t able to travel to the UK but the organisers were able to adapt and bring in the likes of Nicky Romero, NERVO and Netsky.

The early bird campers started the party off with a silent disco (greatly appreciated by the locals) on the Thursday and then on the Friday Creamfields welcomed the rest of the campers and non campers.

David Guetta made an epic return to the festival after years away bringing out special guest  MORTEN to bring the house down with their Future Rave remix of ‘Titanium.’ The other highlight performances from the festival came from CamelPhat, Pendulum, Martin Garrix and Armin van Buuren.

The  wholesome moment of the weekend came during Tiësto’s performance, when a couple of friends celebrated the life of 30 year old Stuart Mitchell, who sadly lost his battle with depression. The father of one’s ashes were fired out of a confetti cannon during the performance, capturing the attention of the crowd. It was an emotional end but one that truly captured the importance of how music brings people together.

For those who have the fezzy blues or don’t want to miss out next year, don’t worry as you can sign up for next year’s Creamfields festival now.
