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.
