Image for Creamfields 2011 headliner revealed!

Was one of your New Year’s resolutions for 2011 to see Canadian dude Deadmau5 and his epic, expansive and extraordinary new live show? Well that’s one resolution you won’t have to casually forget about as inthemix can now exclusively reveal that Deadmau5 will be in Australia next year to headline the 2011 Creamfields festival tour! Win!

As guessed by many curious readers in ITM’s teaser piece earlier this week, Deadmau5 will be the main attraction of the Creamfields national tour next year, bringing his LED Mau5head and jaw-dropping new live setup out to Australia for the first time.

Deadmau5’s headline spot backs up the words of Creamfields promoters Totem and Onelove who promised that the 2011 incarnation of the festival will be assembling some of the “world’s best acts” with “larger stages and epic production” to boot. Sounds tasty.

The festival organisers also slipped inthemix some details about the national tour, including a new venue for Brisbane and a special Planet Cream excursion planned for Adelaide punters.

There’ll be more details forthcoming about who else is on the lineup and you’ll be able to see ‘em first here on inthemix, but for now check out the national Creamfields tour dates below and get brushed up on just how special the new Deadmau5 live show looks in these embedded galleries.

Creamfields 2011 festival tour dates:

Friday April 22nd – Adelaide Entertainment Centre, Adelaide – Planet Cream
Saturday April 23rd – Claremont Showgrounds, Perth
Monday April 25th – Melbourne Showgrounds, Melbourne (Public Holiday Monday/Tuesday)
Tues April 26th – AIS Arena, Canberra – Warehouse
Saturday April 30th – Showring & Hordern Pavilion, Sydney
Sunday May 1st – RNA Showgrounds, Brisbane (Public Holiday Eve)

@johnbiggs Then maybe you should run your own festivals and you can bring down whoever you like. :)

His set at stereosonic 2009 was boring as piss. He was much better @ Family in '09 after Good Vibes...

nickyg1991 said on the 31st Dec, 2010

is creamfields coming to adelaide??? and in the adelaide entertainment centre?? wtf


polite_society said on the 31st Dec, 2010

Predictable, but the new setup looks interesting, and hopefully alone he'll bring the numbers, and the creamfields guys can focus on filling the rest of the lineup with something a bit more interesting.


bigstrauss said on the 31st Dec, 2010

please have him indoors, none of these shit outdoor stages where you cant hear the music


bigstrauss said on the 31st Dec, 2010

essential selection

saw the mau5 play for 4 hrs to close his Cream residency at Amnesia this year. Not the greatest fan but it was huge. Somehow the crowd was wrapped round his fingers including when he played his FML dubstep stuff. Love him or hate him it works. somehow


vivaldi said on the 1st Jan, 2011

Love deadmau5 but i saw his show at stereo 09.. setup and lighting was boring his song choices were shocking. Not too sure if im keen on seeing him play live again but these fotos makes me reconsider


Wowk said on the 2nd Jan, 2011

lawlietskyy said on the 2nd Jan, 2011

frangahouselover said on the 5th Jan, 2011

when will full lineup be revealed?


lawrahhhmck said on the 12th Jan, 2011

ummmmmm Adelaide on Good Friday?! have they got a special license, otherwise isn't that illegal?!


Nicktherussian said on the 14th Jan, 2011

Meh. Just a commercial headliner to get people to buy tickets just because they hear his stuff on nova along side tiestos stuff. Not really diggin' the 4x4=12 album and sort of got over his sound, so not expecting a fabulous set...


MitchhctiM said on the 18th Jan, 2011

Skrillex is not playing.

Why dont you guys just for once in your life watch a festival filmed in london or south africa or something and get yourselves so god dam proper ideas on how to throw an insane party, cause quite honestly australian festivals have got a lot of work to be done... Every single one i have been to has been below standard... And i keep finding myself going just to see if the next one is a little better then the first... But it never changes... Come on Australia... show the world that we know how to put on a festival... Take a chance... Get new acts... even if not they not commercial and not everyone know about them... Trust me the numbers will come and people will finally get educated on what the dance scene is all about...


hurley18 said on the 25th Jan, 2011

where are the set times brah?


Prok said on the 4th Feb, 2011

When should we expect the rest of the lineup?


wherescarmin said on the 4th Feb, 2011

someone told me that this might be getting cancelled?
havent heard much about it other than the deadmau5 headline, maybe that rumour is true?


Ruskhouse said on the 7th Feb, 2011

fullnorris said on the 7th Feb, 2011
