1. Calvin Harris
It’s not an electronic music festival without Calvin Harris on the lineup, is it? Taking a pit stop from his residency from Ushuaia in Ibiza, Calvin is finally back in the UK and is set to perform his biggest hits. He will be hitting the stage on Saturday 27th May.
2. Eric Prydz
Now Eric Prydz is a set you cannot afford to miss. Not only known for his unique-sounding electronic music but for his impressive visuals that make any crowd mesmerized. Prydz has headlined some of the world’s most iconic venues including Brixton Academy, Alexandra Palace, and Madison Square Garden. He will be hitting the stage on Sunday 28th May.
3. Andy C
Andy C is undoubtedly one of the most important figures in drum’n’bass evolution. He’s been on the scene at the dawn of the ’90s when drum’n’bass was still hardcore techno. You cannot pass the opportunity to catch one of the most iconic figures within the insular and manic UK drum’n’bass scenes. He will be hitting the stage on Sunday 28th May.
4. Hannah Laing
From performing alongside Hollywood A-lister Idris Elba during his sets in Ibiza, Rising star Hannah Laing is set to perform all year round with a stop at Creamfields South. If you’re looking for more female DJs to support then catch Hannah’s set on Sunday 28th May.
5. GW Harrison
Having held down a major residency with the giant that is ABODE, GW is set to perform on Friday 26th and his set cannot be missed.
6. Fatboy Slim
Fatboy Slim’s career spans 4 decades but he is still one of the most loved DJs in the world. If you haven’t seen one of his sets before, then you’re in for a real treat. What makes his sets so special apart from his craft of re-editing songs and samples specifically for his sets is that the whole performance is peppered with his hits. You can catch him on Sunday 28th May.
