The countdown to festival season has officially started as Creamfields South unleashes a huge line up for its return to Hylands Park in Essex on May Bank Holiday weekend.

This week’s line up announcement follows more exciting news from the festival powerhouse who are raising the game this year and will see them bringing one of the most talked about stage productions in recent years – Runway presented by SHEIN. Since making its debut at Creamfields North last year, Runway has firmly earned its place as one of the main set-pieces of the UK festival scene. Loved by DJs and the audience alike and giving a full assault on the senses in a setting that goes beyond a simple audio-visual set up, the 20,000-capacity super structure will be making its debut at Creamfields South and hosted by two of the hottest labels in electronic music – Paradise (Saturday) and Trick (Sunday), with Patrick Topping and Jamie Jones bringing an army of talent to entertain across the weekend.
And if that’s not enough the monolithic centrepiece from the north edition – Arc Stage which spans a jaw dropping 100 metres wide will be getting its first airing of the summer as it makes its South debut.
With less than 120 days to go, there’s no better start to festival season than Creamfields South. The countdown is on! Tickets on sale 9am (GMT) Friday 27th January.
