Melbourne, Australia is the place to be for Creamfields Australia 2017 in February. The hottest music festival in the United Kingdom will celebrate 20 years of jamming in Melbourne with Belgian icons Dimitry Vegas and Like Mike now part of its lineup.
The duo will be joining Deadmau5 to celebrate and jam with fans in Creamfields as it returns to Australia five years since the last Creamfields Australia in 2012.
Organizers are yet to release the full lineup of artists that festival goers should expect. However, the inclusion of the producer and DJ duo will definitely add more spice to the event.
It can be remembered that the duo, who are actually brothers in real life, recently dominated DJ charts. Dimitri Vegas, also called Dimitri Thiavos, and Like Mike, also called Michael Thiavos, ranked second on the DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs ranking in 2016, and ranked first in their 2015 list.
The two gained fame after their inclusion as hosts for Tomorrowland in 2010, where they also created its theme. They have attended multiple Tomorrowland iterations since then.
Meanwhile, Deadmau5, also known by his real name Joel Thomas Zimmerman, is a Toronto based DJ specialising in electronic music. He has been performing since 1998, and has released a multitude of albums. He has in fact been nominated six times for the Grammy Awards during his entire career so far.
Creamfields Australia is Creamfields’ iteration of the hit festival in the country. It was held for the first time in 2010, garnering much success and praise.
The Creamfields Festival can be considered the United Kingdom’s best major festival. It was held in Winchester for the first time in 1998, where it gathered almost 25,000 attendees and starred guests such as Sasha, Primal Scream and Paul van Dyke.
Creamfields was held in different countries every August since then, attracting crowds, artists, and disk jockeys from around the world.
Creamfields fans can remember 2012 being the only year when the festival didn’t get to finish its full course, as its last part was cancelled due to the weather.
