Top French DJ David Guetta is returning to the UAE to once again headline the Creamfields festival in Abu Dhabi on December 7. The star, who last headlined the festival in 2010 and has played in the capital and Dubai numerous times, will be joined by Dutch DJ Armin Van Buuren, another UAE regular.

Guetta is currently in the charts with his song Titanium, while van Buuren has one of the most listened-to radio shows in the world. The Dutchman performed at the du Forum last year. Futher acts will be announced, said organisers Flash Entertainment.

The event, now in its xx year, takes place at the du Arena, where there will be performances on the main stage and in a covered House Arena and mix of trance, techno, house and commercial dance.

There will be further entertainment in the shape of giant laser robots, stilt walkers, laser and light shows, fun rides, a fun photo booth and fancy dress costumes, a chill out shisha lounge and oxygen bars.

Early Bird tickets are on sale now for Dh195; once those have sold out (the number was not announced) tickets will be Dh275. VIP Standing (for over 21s only) is Dh595. F1 ticket holders get 20 per cent off.

Tickets have also gone on sale for the Skybar Grand Prix after parties, although the performers have not been announced. Skybar Abu Dhabi runs from November 1-4.
