For the first time Creamfields South will take place in the south of England at the heart of Chelmsford’s Hylands Park.
The electronic and dance festival has attracted the likes of Calvin Harris, deadmau5, Swedish House Mafia, Chase & Status, The Chemical Brothers and Pendulum. It has also established itself internationally with shows staged in Ibiza, Peru, and Hong Kong to name a few.

Artists’ headlining Creamfields South 2022 include David Guetta, Idris Elba, Fatboy Slim, Becky Hill and more. But when is Creamfields South 2022 and what is the age limit for those wanting to attend?
