Creamfields 2012 line-up is here!

April 2011 saw international festival goliath Creamfields make its second run at Australia’s dance music fanatics, with Deadmau5 leading the way on his Rubik’s Cube. For 2012, Totem Onelove (the team behind Creamfields Australia and the recently-wrapped Stereosonic) has once again set its sights on superstar headliners, a mix of genres and a ticket price that won’t bust the budget.

Tickets for the festival go on-sale today Thursday 22 December at 10am – just in time for any last-minute Christmas present requests – along with the announcement of who’ll be there in 2012.

By now you’ll already know that the man in the headline spot is David Guetta. The unstoppable Frenchman is on the home stretch of a stellar 2011 that saw his double-album Nothing But The Beat go stratospheric and DJ Mag readers vote him the world’s #1 DJ. Last week we also revealed that leading trance trio Above & Beyond are locked in, following a triumphant headline tour a couple of months ago.

So now’s the time to hear about who else is on board. Melbourne boy turned international A-lister Dirty South is back after a big Stereosonic, while fast-rising star Alesso will also be getting anthemic.

After his buddy Datsik tore up the Bass Arena at Stereo, Excision is on the Creamfields bill, while trance acolytes get W&W, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Sied van Riel and MaRLo.

A new venue has also been announced for Queensland – Parklands, Gold Coast. Check out the line-up below, then follow the What’s On links below to get yourself an early-bird ticket.
