Creamfields Unveils Brand New 360º Venue for 2018
Since its inception back in 1998, Creamfields has been pioneering cutting-edge levels of production for the past two decades, setting the benchmark for electronic music festivals around the world.
And now, ahead of their 21st anniversary this August Bank Holiday, the organisers have unveiled their latest creation; SILO.
After a year of planning, setting out to create a fully immersive structure; something dark, intimate and unlike any other festival stage, SILO was born. The cylindrical chamber features a bespoke sound and light experience, designed to envelop the audience and offer an all-round assault on the senses.
From the days of the Roman Colosseum, experiencing live events “in the round” has been a sure-fire way to feel part of the action. The SILO structure builds on this concept by providing a 40m wide circular dancefloor, with towering walls and a vast cylindrical space and tiered viewing platforms giving festival goers a unique aerial view.
Despite a 360 wall of sound and custom video, 140 hybrid strobes and 80 moving lights, the show design will be simple: dark, underground and immersive.
SILO is one of three brand new venues to be unveiled ahead of this year’s festival, so keep your eyes peeled on NextFest for news as soon as it arrives.
Creamfields will be hoping they can emulate the success of their Steel Yard venue, which they introduced back in 2016. The 15,000 capacity superstructure has been so popular that it now has its own London event this May, headlined by Tiësto and Above & Beyond.
Creamfields takes place from Thursday 23 – Sunday 26 August at Cheshire’s Daresbury Estate. For the full line-up, plus photos, videos, and ticket info, head to our Creamfields 2018 festival page.
