Carl Cox announced as first Creamfields 2018 headliner

Creamfields, set to return to Daresbury in Cheshire in 2018, have confirmed Carl Cox as their first headliner. He’ll return the after a decade away to host and curate his own Intec stage on the Fright night in the iconic Steel Yard. Carl Cox has been a regular pioneer of electronic music, and one of the most recognised DJs on the planet. His record-breaking Ibiza residency boasted forward thinking line-ups and mesmerising production, both of which promise to come with him to Creamfields next year.

The packed weekend will welcome some of the biggest and best DJs and electronic maestros to one of the UK’s leading dance events, with the full line-up expected to be announced in February.

Creamfields 2017 saw performances by the likes of The Chainsmokers, deadmau5, Tiësto, Martin Garrix, Hardwell, Armin van Buuren, Eric Prydz, Axwell & Ingrosso, and many more.

The festival will run from the 23 to the 26 August 2018.
