Liverpool’s famous Docklands had another addition in November – the Steel Yard! Cream’s impressive 20,000 capacity superstructure which was designed and created exclusively for Creamfields in 2016/7 is the largest of its kind in Europe and was erected on Stanley Dock in Liverpool for 3 nights in November – Armin van Buuren on Nov 18, Martin Garrix on Nov 25, and on Nov 24, Cream Classical.

With a line up that included the likes of Danny Rampling, Tall Paul and Paul Bleasdale, we arrived to the venue as Sister Bliss of Faithless was DJing – the highlight of which was when she played Push – Strange World, a brilliant track from around the 2001 era.

At 10pm Cream’s 50 piece Philharmonic Orchestra took to the stage. They performed some of the classic Cream tracks of yesteryear, which included the likes of K Klass – Let Me Show You, Alison Limerick – Where Love Lives, The Bucketheads – The Bomb [These Sounds Fall Into My Mind] and Felix – Don’t You Want My Love.

Next up, the Steel Yard was transformed into a sea of red lasers as Laurent Garnier’s massive track Man With The Red Face went off!

More big tunes a plenty came in the last hour. We had a great night listening to some big classics; Robert Miles – Children, Reflekt – I Need To Feel Loved, Tiesto – Adagio For Strings, Eric Prydz – Pjanoo and Faithless – Insomnia in the excellent Steel Yard structure.

Creamfields Steel Yard will return in May 2018 to London where Above & Beyond and Tiesto will perform. Grab your tickets here –
