Creamfields is one of the biggest dance music festivals in the world. Housing over 60,000 revellers over three days near Liverpool, UK, the festival has expanded dramatically over the last 10 years. The biggest dance, drum and bass, dubstep and house DJ’s all station themselves at Creamfields every summer and 2017 will be no different. From the dance powerhouses to the new kids on the block, this year has it all covered.
Here are 6 of the absolute must see songs you should check out at Creamfields this year:
6. Nobody To Love – Sigma
After plying their trade for over 10 years , Sigma finally hit the dizzying heights of stardom with their hit single Nobody To Love in 2015. The drum and bass duo made noise on the scene from 2009 onwards with singles such as Paint It Black but somewhat flew under the radar for a while, DJ’ing all over the UK until their eventual breakthrough. In the prime of their career, they’re definitely one to check out at Creamfields this year.
5. Praise You – Fatboy Slim
Creamfields regular, Fatboy Slim, is back again this year and boy does he put on a show. In 2008 his Creamfields visuals consisted mostly of trippy crying clowns as he entertained the crowds with classics such as The Rockerfeller Skank and Right Here, Right Now. Norman Cook is a dance music legend who just never looks like slowing down. Everybody has to see Fatboy Slim once in their lives and what better track to look forward to than Praise You.
4. Opus – Eric Prydz
Eric Prydz returned with a bang last year when he released his new album, Opus. The Swedish producer who first broke onto the scene with Call On Me accompanied by a video of attractive ladies working out, has continued to take the dance world by storm with a consistent ream of club classics. Opus is the title track from his latest album and it is full of incredible sounds, build ups and beats that will have you no doubt dancing until the early hours at this year’s Creamfields festival.
3. For An Angel – Paul Van Dyk
Paul Van Dyk never stops. The German trance DJ has produced 9 albums over a career spanning a mind-blowing 27 years! An absolute hero of the dance scene, Paul Van Dyk is well equipped to get the crowd roaring with a back catalogue of hundreds of classics. If you are a dance-nut, chances are you’re a fan of Van Dyk. For An Angel is one of his biggest hits so make sure to check it out if you’re at Creamfields this year.
2. Could This Be Real – Sub Focus
Released over 8 years ago, Could This Be Real is an absolute floor crowder and really highlights the sheer talent of Sub Focus. It’s dubby but it’s beautifully crafted and not too in-your-face. It’s light, dancey and definitely one for when you’re feeling on top of the world this summer. Sub Focus has only released 2 studio albums but it definitely at the beginning of a long career on the circuit. Check this track out at Creamfields if you can.
1. Silence – DJ Tiesto, Delerium & Sarah McLachlan
Quite possibly the best dance song ever made? Actually, scrap that, definitely the best dance song ever made. Another regular at Creamfields, trance DJ Tiesto took the world by storm when he released his remix of Silence. There is of course a short radio version but any trance-head will tell you the 11 minute version is the best. The beautiful voice of Sarah McLachlan throughout the entire build up sends shivers down your spine right up until the drop which leaves you completely breathless. This song raises the roof at Creamfields because it is the absolute staple of trance music. If you see just one song at Creamfields, see this one.
