Cream May Bank Holiday Special

cream nation

Cream unleash a house-centric line up for their May 3rd rave at Nation, Liverpool.  It’s a warm up for the festival season, featuring a fantastic lineup of some exciting Cream debuts, and also some of the biggest names performing at this year’s Creamfields.

Making their long awaited debuts are MK and Duke Dumont. Both will be representing at Creamfields this year and will be headlining the Cream May Bank Holiday Special. Critically acclaimed Detroit born MK continues to push the boundaries of musical genres which have garnered him his much deserved reputation in dance music circles. Grammy nominated Duke Dumont brings his unique sound – a synthesis of techno, UK garage and house – which has seen him become one of the world’s most in-demand DJ/producers.

SecondCity, one of the most talked-about newcomers in electronic music these days, returns after being one of the highlights at last year’s Creamfields. Another exciting debut at Cream is Stephen Fasano (aka The Magician), who was previously a member of Aeroplane, a popular Balaeric disco duo. Stephen has gathered his own cult following of fans, and is known for his superb remixes of Lykke Li’s “I Follow Rivers” and “Rather Be”, from Clean Bandit.

Also making their return are Disciples, the South London trio who stunned everyone with their Cream performance on Boxing night.

Further debuts include Alex Adair, who found his debut single feted by Zane Lowe and Annie Mac. He’s only 21 but has nonetheless amassed a fantastic 3 million plays on Soundcloud. This has led to him remixing for artists including Ed Sheeran and Jessie Ware. Jax Jones will also be performing. The multi-instrumentalist charted at number one in the UK last year with “I Got U”, which he co-produced with Duke Dumont.

Bringing up the rest of the bill are Kiwi, TCTS, Toyboy and Robin, As I Am, Midnight City, and Cream residents Gareth Wyn, Jemmy and Anthony Probyn.
