The dance legends will headline at the du Arena on December 8

Dance festival Creamfields will return to Abu Dhabi for the first time since 2014 this December 8 – and the headliners are Canadian DJ Deadmau5 and former Swedish House Mafia stars Axwell /\ Ingrosso.

Yesterday, What’s On reported that it looked like the dance music legends would be performing in the capital. Now, organisers Flash Entertainment have confirmed the news.

The last time Deadmau5 performed at Creamfields Abu Dhabi was in 2011, when Tiesto was the headliner. He also performed here back in 2009, also at Creamfields. Check out the video below of him performing in 2011.

Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso were previously members of dance act Swedish House Mafia and have been performing as Axwell /\ Ingrosso since 2014. Check out their 2015 hit Sun Is Shining below.

The duo have been nominated for Grammys during their career and have headlined Creamfields festivals all over the globe, and they’ve also headlined at Coachella festival in California.

So what about the ticket news? This concert is for 18-year-olds and above only and tickets will go on-sale October 4 from 12pm. You can get them from Ticketmaster or Virgin Megastores. Ticket prices start at Dhs250 if booked in advance, rising to Dhs795. Tickets on the day start at Dhs300.
