Is Deadmau5 returning to Abu Dhabi for Creamfields this December?
A link on Facebook and a page on Ticketmaster’s website suggests so
Dance festival Creamfields will return to Abu Dhabi for the first time since 2014 this December 8 – and the headliner could be Canadian DJ Deadmau5.
Check out this screengrab below from the Ticketmaster website, taken this afternoon. It suggests the decks guru, also known as Joel Thomas Zimmerman, could be joined in the capital by Swedish DJs Axwell /\ Ingrosso.
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.
According to Deadmau5’s official website, he’s touring the US and Canada until October 31, but currently has no dates in the diary for November.
Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso were previously members of dance act Swedish House Mafia and have been performing as Axwell /\ Ingrosso since 2014 (which means the page on Ticketmaster isn’t an old one). They also currently have no tour dates booked for November, according to their website. check out their 2015 hit Sun Is Shining below.
Abu Dhabi event organisers Flash Entertainment announced Creamfields will return last week with a short video on Facebook. The venue has also yet to be announced, but it’ll most likely be the du Arena, the same as previous years, if that Ticketmaster page is correct. Check out the original full announcement video below.
We’ve asked organisers Flash to comment and as soon as it’s confirmed one way or the other, we’ll let you know.
