Marking the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June 2022, the brand new 50,000 capacity event will be held at Hylands Park in Chelmsford (Essex) over the extended bank holiday weekend.
The multi-stage festival will include the colossal 15,000 capacity Steel Yard superstructure and feature the kind of electronic music heavyweights we’ve come to expect from Creamfields, with previous acts/DJs including the likes of Eric Prydz, Carl Cox, Deadmau5 and The Chemical Brothers.
It coincides with the 25th anniversary celebrations of their flagship festival held in Daresbury, Cheshire – an event that attracts around 70,000 revellers over August bank holiday weekend, scheduled a few months later.

Creamfields Chelmsford will take place on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th June, 2022. The lineup is yet to be announced.
