Armin Van Buuren, Swedish House Mafia, Sander Van Doorn, D Ramirez, Tocadisco + more
With just 6 weeks to go until Xmas, its time to start planning your festive season celebrations! Which is what Cream have been doing for the last few months and have put together a typically impressive line up guaranteed to get you dancing off some of those excess festival calories!
After an almighty Courtyard smash up at Cream's 15th birthday last month, the newly appointed Worlds Number 1 DJ Armin Van Buuren returns, this time he'll be test driving the Main Room. Fresh from selling out 11,000 capacity stadiums, this will be an intimate affair for Armin, a DJ renowned for untouchable mixing skills and epic 10 hour sets. He will be joined by Sander Van Doorn, rated No.15 in this years DJ Mag Top 100 poll, Sander is one of the latest superstar tech/trance DJs to descend from the Netherlands, expect a melting pot of musical styles from Sander who is successfully carving himself a genre all of his own. Joining the duo in the Main Room will be DJ Remy and Cream Resident Gareth Wyn.
Spicing things up in the Courtyard we see the return of Cream favourites the Swedish House Mafia. This holy trinity that is Steve Angello, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso have trail blazed their way to the top over the last few years, delivering mouth watering performances that are guaranteed to get even the most cynical of house music lover busting some moves on the dancefloor. They're trademark 'swedish' sound fits perfectly in the hallowed confounds of the Courtyard, and they will be ably assisted by cream regulars Lee Ellis & Anthony Probyn who will be warming up the crowd in their own inimitable style.
The intimacy of the Annexe will be lending itself to some of the UK's hottest talent, expect 8 hours of pure unadulterated tech house from the likes of D Ramirez, voted 2007's Best producer and British Remixer. This Ivor Novello nominated muso will be joined by Tocadisco, Turnmills resident Gavyn Mytchel, Sean Hughes and our very own Andy Mac.
