Getintothis’ Ste Knight has the latest on Cream’s last big shindig at Nation before they close their doors for the last time.
Following on from the recent announcement that Nation will sadly be closing its doors for good at the end of this year, the iconic venue which is the birthplace and spiritual home of Cream is going out as expected in true party style.
The legendary venue became the clubbing mecca for dance music lovers from around the world and holds a special place in the heart of all those who have religiously attended over the last 23 years and Cream, the electronic global clubbing empire, have announced three encores to ensure the good ship ‘Nation’ is honoured with a suitable send-off.
Featuring three classic line ups that celebrate the last two decades as one of the world’s most iconic clubs, the events take place on Saturday October 17, Saturday October 24 (which conveniently coincides with Cream’s 23rd birthday celebrations) and Boxing Night on Saturday December 26.
Saturday October 17 brings back together some of electronic music’s original pioneers for a truly classic Cream line up with performances from Paul Oakenfold, Pete Tong, Roger Sanchez, Timo Maas, Seb Fontaine, Dave Seaman, Darren Emerson, Jeremy Healy, Jon Pleased Wimmin, Graeme Park, Alistair Whitehead, Tilt, Guy Ornadel, K-Klass, Paul Bleasdale, Andy Carroll, Gareth Wyn and Anthony Probyn.
With just a week to recover Saturday October 24 brings us Part two with an EDM heavy line-up. Headlining this event is one of the biggest acts on the mainstream dance scene right now – Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike. Joining this duo are Carnage, Danny Howard, Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano, Watermät, Michael Woods, David Zowie, Tujamo, Anthony Probyn, Andy Mac, Jemmy, Rob Harnetty, Ed Mackie, Sean Hughes and Lee Ellis.
So polish off those disco boots and pack the Kleenex…its going to be emotional.
