To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Creamfields, a recreation of the iconic Wolstenholme Square venue, Nation will be reconstructed… well, the Main room will be at least.
Recently Nation was demolished to make way for more student flats (yawn…), so this is your chance to re-live some of the old times.
"The club night ignited the electronic music scene in the UK, becoming one of the world’s most iconic clubs and setting the blueprint for club culture as we know it today and the news will come as music to the ears for the thousands of Cream fans who graced its dance floor during its reign.
"Whether you’re a Cream veteran or virgin this is one arena you won’t want to miss, so remember the good times and join the club for an experience and atmosphere so uplifting you’re going to need gravity boots."Organisers, Creamfields
Creamfields is just 2 months away and as things hot up for the biggest electronic music festival in the UK fans can expect some carnival action at this years 20 year celebrations as they unveil a brand new arena ‘Carnavale’ plus a host of new acts to the bill including performances from the likes of Skream, Butch, Latmun, Bontan, Lauren Lo Sung and Anthony Probyn.
The energy and spirit of Carnavale will be led by a Samba Band parade and a flock of feather adorned Brazilian dancers bringing some tropical flavour to the proceedings. Fans are encouraged to dress for the occasion with the winner for the most flamboyant carnival costume or headdress on the day winning Gold Camping tickets for them and 4 mates to Creamfields 2018.
Having recently been voted ‘Best Major Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards, beating off heavyweight competition from the likes of Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds and Isle Of White Festival, the first time an electronic music festival has been awarded the coveted ‘Best Major’ trophy, it would seem Creamfields isn’t slowing down for anyone and long may that continue.
The question is, will they recreate that sticky floor?
