Creamfields 2024 will mark the debut of the aptly named APEX megastructure.
Creamfields doesn’t have a whole lot of ground left to cover after 25 years as a prominent feature of the worldwide music festival landscape. The event brand apparently still has some firsts in its bag of tricks, though. One is the debut of an indoor mainstage called APEX at the August 22-25, 2024 event that organizers say will be the largest of its kind.
3D concept renders of APEX show a warehouse-like structure with beveled walls on two sides and large, vertical lighting fixtures spaced evenly throughout the interior. According to Creamfields, it will be open Friday through Sunday, remaining open all the way until 4am on Saturday.
“Known for consistently pushing the boundaries of electronic music events, Creamfields has once again raised the benchmark for an unforgettable festival experience,” reads a page on the Creamfields website. “The unveiling of APEX, a colossal 30,000 capacity indoor main stage, positions them as host of the largest indoor festival superstructure in the world. Combined with jaw dropping production and the electric atmosphere Creamfields is known for, this brand-new addition to the festivals landscape, shielded from the elements, will offer an epic immersive experience, extending the main stage opening until 4am on Saturday for the first time and due to demand offers an additional main stage destination on Friday.“
Creamfields has taken place annually since 1998, having been launched by UK rave promoter Cream. It was first held in Winchester and relocated to Liverpool in 1999; in 2006 it would land in its current home of Daresbury, Cheshire. In the 2000s and 2010s, Creamfields expanded to include events throughout mainland Europe, Asia, and South America.
No lineup details have been announced for Creamfields 2024 at the time of writing. Previous editions have billed artists like Sasha, Paul Van Dyk, The Chemical Brothers, deadmau5, Armin van Buuren, and Martin Garrix.
