2015 has been a record breaking year for Cream. With Creamfields well on its way to being sold out on August Bank Holiday back in the UK, and having just celebrated a 21st Cream Ibiza birthday on the White Isle, anticipation was high for the inaugural Creamfields Ibiza event at the Ushuaia complex.
Held on the busiest weekend of the season in Ibiza and with a big line up of talent across three venues, this was an event that many had looked forward to all summer. And it didn’t disappoint. With the Hard Rock Hotel, Ushuaia and Ushuaia Tower stages, there was plenty on offer for the 12 hour party. Starting at midday and continuing through the day until midnight on the BBC Radio 1 Ibiza 20 Stage at Ushuaia were the likes of Annie Mac, Duke Dumont, Hannah Wants, MK and Mistajam in the day, whilst the likes of Above & Beyond, Afrojack, Steve Angello, Matthew Koma and Zac Samuel continued the party through the night. Above & Beyond provided some beautiful melodic trance, before Afrojack had the crowds bouncing with his trademark EDM sound. We also witnessed Steve Angello mobbed by the crowd prior to his appearance on the decks – Maradona would of been proud of such a reaction!
Over on the Ants at Ushuaia Tower stage was the likes of Andrea Oliver, Ben Pearce, Deetron, DJ Sneak, Ilario Alicante, Los Suraba and Pete Tong offering a more underground vibe to proceedings. Over at Hard Rock Hotel we were joined by live music performances from Eddy, Modestep, Matrix & Futurebound, Wilkinson, Sigma, Pendulum and festival headliners, The Prodigy.

The Prodigy brought their big sound, complete with masses of lights, lasers and sirens. The Prodigy mix rock with dance music complete with their energetic full on stage presence; there were drums, guitars, keyboards and synths. They played a mixture of their classic tracks, such as Omen, Firestarter and Smack My Bitch up, as well as new tracks from new album, The Day Is My Enemy including the aptly named Ibiza. It was a great performance from a band still on top of their game.
It was an event that worked brilliantly; crowds were big, smiles were huge, and it was an excellent diverse line up with a great atmosphere. We look forward to Creamfields Ibiza returning next year!
