David Guetta, Calvin Harris To Headline Creamfields South In 2022
Creamfields South has announced the first wave of acts for next year’s event, including headliners David Guetta and Calvin Harris.
The inaugural dance festival will take place at Hylands Park in Chelmsford, Essex between 2 June and 4 June 2022. Tickets go on general sale at 9am GMT next Tuesday (November 30).
Organisers have now confirmed that David Guetta and Calvin Harris will top the bill on the Friday (June 3) and Saturday (4) respectively.
Also part of the “phase one” line-up are Fatboy Slim, Deadmau5, CamelPhat, Becky Hill, Amelie Lens, Carl Cox, Jamie Jones and Charlotte De Witte. More names are expected in the coming months. Visit the event’s official website for further information.
Those hoping to attend Creamfields South next summer are required to sign up to be in with a chance of bagging tickets. Earlier this week, organisers said that over 110,000 people had already registered.
“That’s over twice the capacity of the show – a definite sell out,” they wrote. “Make sure you’ve signed up to avoid disappointment.”
The spin-off event will take place in addition to the regular Creamfields, which is traditionally held over the August Bank Holiday weekend. Next year marks the 25th anniversary of the festival.
The 2021 edition of Creamfields saw performances from the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Chase And Status and Tiesto. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Creamfields held a virtual ‘house party edition’ instead of their regular event during 2020. That saw the broadcast over 40 of their favourite sets from throughout the festival’s history.
