Creamfields 2019 was one of the festival's biggest years to date. From Swedish House Mafia almost burning down the main stage to deadmau5' Cube 3.0 making it's UK debut, it was one for the books. The team behind the U.K.'s biggest electronic festival are back to announce the return of Creamfields in 2020 and have revealed their first headliner- Armin van Buuren. The Dutch titan will return to headline the South Stage on Saturday, August 29th, 2020. 

van Buuren is known for throwing down during his sets. With his forthcoming experimental album Balance set to debut October 25th, there's no telling what he has in store for the Creamfields crowd. 

Commenting on his return, van Buuren said: “I’m excited to be back at Creamfields in 2020, having performed at the festival many times over the years and watching it grow into the show it’s become today, it’s always a special one for me."

The festival will take place on August 27th-30th during the bank holiday and will be held in Daresbury, Cheshire in the U.K. Tickets go on sale at 9:00 AM BST on Friday, September 27th, 2019. Those lucky enough to get in quick can secure their ticket through a six-part deposit program broken down in £20 increments. As an added incentive, all those who purchase a standard camping ticket before 9:00 AM BST Tuesday, October 1st will receive a complimentary upgrade to Bronze Camping.
