The UK Creamfields ‘Steel Yard’ 2016 Festival Is Here!


Following the success of this year’s Creamfields 2016, which saw  70,000  people  flock  to Daresbury in Cheshire for one of the biggest weekends in the festival calendar, fans attending witnessed the birth of the ‘Steel Yard’ EDM superstructure and are pleased to announce its return for a very special 10,000 capacity show at Central Docks, Liverpool Waters on the city’s waterfront on Saturday 26th November 2016 headlined by one of the world’s most popular and biggest electronic dance music DJs Axwell & Ingrosso.

With  over  10  colossal  arenas  on  site,  there  was  one  which  dominated  the  landscape and as  the most ambitious production concept to date, the Steel Yard superstructure exceeded all expectations, becoming one  of this year’s festival highlights.

Designed exclusively for Creamfield’s and the largest of  its  kind  in  Europe,  the  20m  high  structure  has undoubtedly redefined  festival production as  we know  it,  featuring  newly  developed  automated  technology which  brought  this living,  breathing behemoth to life.‘The Steel Yard presents Axwell & Ingrosso’ is the first of a series of special events planned ahead of the festival’s 20thAnniversary celebrations in 2017and sees the  return of the Creamfield’s brand to its spiritual home in over a decade.

The Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson, said:

Liverpool  is  synonymous  with  music  and  we  have  a wonderful  heritage,  but  while  celebrating  the  past  it  is  also  important  to  keep  our  offer  fresh  and progressive so this is great news. Cream is one of Liverpool’s biggest and most iconic brands and is world famous  and  has  a  reputation  for  pushing  the  boundaries. So  to  know  that  Creamfields  is coming  back  to  the  city  is  music  to  my  ears,  because  this  is  its  spiritual  home.  Steel  Yard  is  sure  to excite many people and my hope is that it is something that can become a regular fixture in the city’s annual music calendar.

The assistant project director at Liverpool Waters Ian Pollitt said:

Steel Yard is a really innovative concept  and  having  it  at  Central  Docks  in  Liverpool  Waters  so  close  to  the  river  will  make it  a  truly memorable experience for every one attending. I am  delighted that  we are working with Cream and able to find them a place on the waterfront, which I hope will become their regular venue for years to come.
