Dance festival's star attractions; Cream of nation's DJ talent.

Byline: MICHELLE COYLE

CREAMFIELDS has attracted a string of top DJs and dance acts this year to bolster its reputation as the world's best dance music festival. Mylo, Basement Jaxx, Tisto, Dizzee Rascal, Calvin Harris and David Guetta are just a handful of the star attractions at this year's Creamfields over the August Bank Holiday weekend in Daresbury, Cheshire.

Mylo's monster dancefloor hit "Drop The Pressure" propelled him to the top of the charts in 2005 and heralded him as the hottest talent in dance music. He's since dropped out of the limelight and has been locked away like a musical hermit, digging deep into his pounds 50,000 vinyl collection for inspiration ahead of a killer comeback at Creamfields.

Mylo, real name Myles MacInnes, said: "I've been locked away with my beats and putting in serious studio time for the past few years. The new record will be out later this year, but at the moment I''m just focussing on creating a great live show.

"I'm really excited for Creamfields this year, its the biggest stage for dance music and the crowd is the best. I'm going to bring a huge live show to Creamfields this year and throw everything I've got at it. It will be a mix of the old and new music, but I need to re-think some of the live elements to make it really fresh."

The 31-year-old Scot's new effects are set to include some terrifying new visuals put on with his collaborator, The Phantom.

Mylo said: "I'm talking through some mad, visual ideas with him. He's got some great plans for graphics and has worked with us on the last tour. With bizarre images and psychologically disturbing faces, it's . For full details, information sales, www.creamfields. or call 0844 going to be intense.

"I want to catch Basement Jaxx and Dizzee Rascal if we get the chance to stay overnight. Someone suggested I should have a mix-off battle to see who''s Top of the Scots with Calvin Harris, but he knows who will win!" Headliner Tisto is another star who can't wait to get behind the decks at Creamfields. He told the Daily Post: "Creamfields is a must do experience, at least once in your life. One thing I love about the festival is that it features all different kinds of artists and I'm always discovering new music while I'm there. It's an honour to be performing on a stage with such an eclectic line-up.

"I'm going to perform quite a bit of new music. My new album is coming out later this year, so I'm getting really excited to start playing those tracks and, as always, there will definitely be a few surprises."
