This year marked the 20th anniversary of clubbing brand Cream and its a brand that is as strong as ever having sold out this year's Boxing Day special. Next year they will be returning to their old home at Nation for another huge club night featuring Paul van Dyk, Eddie Halliwell and Nicky Romero...
Following the announcement that Cream Boxing Night has sold out, we are pleased to reveal that Cream will return to Nation on Saturday 2nd March for the first show of what is set to be an incredible 2013.
We launch into the year with a line-up that blends the leading names in electronic music right now with the legends that have helped Cream to be the iconic brand it is today, including Paul van Dyk, Nicky Romero, Eddie Halliwell, Aly & Fila, Third Party, Tim Mason plus many more.
First up we welcome one of this year’s biggest breakthrough artists, Nicky Romero. The babyfaced Dutchman has rapidly asserted himself into the house scene over the last 12 months with his DJ and production skills, which has seen him become the highest new entry in the DJ Mag Top 100 at number 17 and performing one of this year’s stand out sets at Creamfields. Joining Nicky in the Main Room is an artist who needs little introduction, Cream favourite Eddie Halliwell, along with two of the UK's hottest producers Third Party and Tim Mason who have been quickly snapped up by Steve Angello's Size Records label, we're expecting big things from both of these acts next year and judging from Third Party's set at our 20th Anniversary party you don't want to miss these guys in March, joining them will be Cream resident Gareth Wyn.
Fresh from the release of his album ‘Evolution’ Paul van Dyk makes a welcome return to the Courtyard showing others how it’s done. Expect driving trance and those all-important hands in the air moments that have maintained Paul’s position as a leader in electronic music. Paul will be supported by trance duo Aly and Fila who have warned us to expect the following side effects from their set - ‘hairs on the back of your neck, reaching for the lasers and losing your mind’, and completing the line up for the Courtyard will be Adam Sheridan and Cream resident Rob Harnetty.
Not only did we celebrate 20 years in the business in 2012 but we also embraced the return of Cream legend Paul Bleasdale and now we've got him back we're not letting him go, following a spine tingling set at Cream’s Anniversary party he returns to headline the Annexe alongside Cream residents Anthony Probyn, Andy Mac, Jemmy , Lee Ellis and Ricochet Musica.
