If you’ve got a gap in your diary this May bank holiday, you’ll be pleased to hear the news that Cream is to return on Sunday the 3rd May for a bank holiday special. Warming us up for the festival season, the night is to feature some exciting Cream debuts and some of the biggest names that will be performing at this year’s Creamfields.
First to be announced are some of the biggest acts of the moment, MK and Duke Dumont, making their long awaited debuts at Cream. Both artists will be flying the flag at Creamfields this year and will be headlining this very special event as a warm up. Rarely will you find such high calibre artists together on a club bill, as the Detroit-born MK’s talents continue to push the boundaries of musical genres to earn him a stellar reputation across the dance music spectrum, whilst the Grammy-nominated Duke Dumont and his unique sound have catapulted the artist to become one of the most in-demand DJ/producers on the planet.
One of the most talked about newcomers in electronic music today is SecondCity, and as one of last year’s Creamfields highlights he has garnered support from major players like Disclosure, Skream and MK himself. Another exciting Cream debut comes from The Magician, previously a member of the revered Balearic disco duo Aeroplane, now stepping out on his own he has garnered somewhat of a cult following of pop and house fans thanks to his killer remixes. South London trio Disciples return, following their acclaimed Boxing Night performance at Cream, they’re back with that unique sound that have made this triple threat one of dance music’s hottest assets.
Bringing some tropical house to the Annexe and continuing with the Cream debuts is Alex Adair, with the 21-year-old’s championed debut single ‘Make Me Feel Better‘ currently making the rounds on Radio 1. Signed to Duke Dumont’s label is Grammy nominated Jax Jones, the multi-talented instrumentalist, producer and songwriter responsible for one of the biggest tracks of last year ‘I Got U‘ which charted at #1 in the UK. Completing the line-up is performances from Kiwi, TCTS, Toyboy & Robin, As I Am, Midnight City and Cream residents Gareth Wyn, Jemmy and Anthony Probyn.
