The mighty Tiesto and British legends Basement Jaxx have been confirmed as headliners for Creamfields 2009.
The two goliaths of dance are set to top a gargantuan line-up that includes hip-hop sensation Dizee Rascal, 2 Many DJs and Mylo, who both play live, as well as Paul Van Dyke.
A French touch will be added to this summer’s weekender with David Guetta and Laurent Garnier (Live) hitting the ones and twos whilst an air of exclusivity is set to revolve around the only UK appearance of Luciano presents ÆtherLive.
Erick Morillo, Sasha and John Digweed have also been announced alongside Ferry Corsten, Pete Tong, Erol Alkan and Timo Maas making the line-up read like a who’s who of the dance world.
Things don’t stop there as the Swedish House Mafia, comprised of Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello are set to return to the festival for the second year running.
Creamfields has booked rising star Deadmau5, who is set to play a number of big summer events, as well as Delphic (live), Crookers, Aerpolanes, Sven Vath, Sander Van Doorn, Boys Noize, Nick Warren and Danny Howells.
Drum n Bass will be well represented with DJ Marky, Andy C and High Contrast all set to appear in the arena hosted by APE, as will BBC Radio 1 with Judge Jules and Annie Mac, who also hosts her own arena, down to play.
As per usual a number of different genres will also be represented with the likes of indie trio Friendly Fires and beat-boxer Beardyman set to take to one of the many stages. Many more artists have been confirmed.
