Calvin Harris, Avicii, Tiesto and Axwell & Ingrosso to headline Creamfields

Calvin Harris

Calvin Harris, Avicii, Tiesto and Axwell & Ingrosso have been announced as the headliners for this year's Creamfields Festival.

The dance event takes place at Daresbury, Cheshire, in August.

Also on the bill are the likes of Armin van Buuren, Martin Garrix, Pete Tong, Fatboy Slim, Annie Mac and Eric Prydz.

More than 200 acts will play over the bank holiday weekend in total with Creamfields extended to four days for the first time this year.

More acts will be added to the bill soon.

The festival takes place between 25-28 August.

The first Creamfields was held in Winchester in 1998 as an offshoot of Cream nightclub in Liverpool.

It moved to its present location in 2008 after being held in Liverpool for five years with special dance events held at various cities around the world.

Last year's festival sold out for the seventh year in a row.

Organisers spent £500,000 improving the festival site in 2013 after flooding forced it to close early the year before.

Drainage and walkways were improved by Live Nation, who said they were "100% committed to improving the safety, security and suitability of the site".
