Creamfields first weekend – the photos are in!

Image for Creamfields first weekend – the photos are in!

The weather may have taken a turn for the chilly, but the party people still turned out in droves for the final festival of the ‘season’, Creamfields. The first weekend saw the line-up visit Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney, with Brisbane and Perth poised for the coming weekend.

The photo galleries have now all landed on inthemix, so you can relive all the action or see what you missed out on. This year, the bona-fide star-on-the-rise at Creamfields was young Swede Alesso, who stepped up at each show to a hero’s welcome. His sets featured plenty of surefire records from his countrymen like Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell – although he made sure to tell inthemix in Sydney that he was steering clear of Levels.

Alesso shared the big-room house honours with Melbourne export Dirty South, who had his own arsenal of edits and high-impact tunes. “Basically Alesso plays all the hits, and I play all the cool shit,” Dirty South joked to inthemix within earshot of his Swedish buddy.

Whether they were closing Planet Cream in Adelaide or staking their claim on the mainstage in Sydney and Melbourne, Jono Grant and Paavo Siljamäk skipped the big tunes of the moment to focus on the signature Above & Beyond sound – although custom-fit for a festival. There was no question of the headliner, though, as David Guetta came complete with custom visuals, pyrotechnics and big tune after big tune. The Frenchman’s chart-ruling pop missives were mixed in with what he calls his “electronic beats”, plus a solid serving of Nicky Romero’s handiwork.

For trance devotees, there was a clear standout across the weekend: Italian gun Giuseppe Ottaviani, whose galvanising live set stole the show. For the bass heads there was Downlink, Shockone and Figure leading the way, so check out all the galleries below.

Worst. Ever. So pissed about the mis-organization, the ridiculously small venue for dancefloor 2 and- to top it all off- the absolutely shocking sound quality during A&B. All that was in Sydney though so maybe Melbourne was much better.

STOP SOUNDING LIKE AN IDIOT BY ACTUALLY FIGURING OUT HOW TO OPERATE LINUX WITHOUT ONLY CLAIMING TO KNOW HOW BECAUSE YOU HAPPENED TO HAVE INSTALLED MANDRAKE ON ONE COMPUTER IN YOUR HOUSE IN THE PAST.
