Creamfields Is BACK In The UAE And This Is Everything You Need To Know About The Music Fest

Creamfields is returning to the UAE (FINALLY) in 2017 and there is plenty to get excited about. 

The electronic music festival has been touring around the world, and is coming back to Abu Dhabi after a small break - and it's set to be the best one yet. 

It's happening on December 8 at du Arena in Abu Dhabi and is going to be MASSIVE. 

deadmau5 is headlining

The multi-award winning Canadian DJ will be spinning out his top tunes, including Ghosts'N'Stuff in his trademark mouse-head. With five critically acclaimed albums worth of tunes, he'll have the entire crowd bouncing until the wee hours. 

Axwell Λ Ingrosso are headlining too 

Swedish dance duo Axwell Ingrosso have been going from strength to strength in the past few years, and after Grammy nominations, DJ Mag top 100 success and performances at Coachella and Creamfields elsewhere, these guys are well-versed in electro tunes. 

Previous acts include Armin Van Buuren and Calvin Harris, deadmau5 and David Guetta 

Van Buuren has played the Yasalam after-race concerts previously too, AND Calvin Harris is playing this year's gig on November 23. 

Basically, these legends LOVE performing in Abu Dhabi.

It debuted in Abu Dhabi in 2009

And was basically the first music festival of its kind in the region. The electro dance music scene has since exploded and 2017 is going to be the BEST ONE EVER.

It's an 18+ event

Sorry kids, it's for grown-ups only! But for the younger adults, it's open to the 18- to 20-year-old crowd too.
