Two brand new events take over Liverpool’s Pier Head

Since its inception, the global dance brand Cream has staged an extraordinary series of sell-out shows in Liverpool.

The award-winning promoters have been collaborating to create unique concerts where an orchestra performs classical arrangements of their dance anthems alongside guest vocalists, DJs and other entertainers. Electronic music duo and former Cream residents K-Klass carefully curate the shows.

The first concert called Cream Classical Live was held in 2016 and featured music from the 60-piece Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. It boasted a night of dance music classics as never heard or seen before in the majestic surroundings of Liverpool Cathedral. An overwhelming success, Cream Classical Live returned in 2017, 2018 and 2019 with more K-Klass selections brought to life orchestrally.

In addition, 2019 saw thousands of people flock to the first Cream Classical In The Park. Held at Liverpool’s Sefton Park over the summer, Manchester’s 50-piece Kaleidoscope Orchestra played in the exciting outdoor show under the stars where 20 of Cream’s biggest DJs also came together to celebrate the beloved soundtrack.

In early March 2021, organisers announced yet another Liverpool landmark – the “Three Graces” with the historic Pier Head area as the backdrop – would be the setting for the brand new Cream Classical On The Waterfront concert. Scheduled for Saturday 18 September 2021, the late-summer festival will again bring together the Kaleidoscope Orchestra with a new spine-tingling set list from K-Klass plus some of the biggest names to have graced the decks at Cream’s legendary club including Basement Jaxx, Faithless, Seb Fontaine, Tall Paul and more.

“We can’t wait to hear the sound of our selection of Cream Classics brought to life by Tim Crooks, the Kaleidoscope Orchestra and vocalists filling the air of the city, whilst Cream’s amazing production sets the Liverpool skyline ablaze with colour and light,” said Paul & Russ of K-Klass. “This is going to be very special indeed!”

A Cream spokesperson added, “The stunning location also holds great memories, marking 21 years since our last show at the Pier Head for the millennium”.

Due to phenomenal demand, on 25 March 2021, Cream added a second instalment of the event called Cream Classical Ibiza On The Waterfront on Sunday 19 September 2021. With a different K-Klass set list, it will also feature the Kaleidoscope Orchestra, Seb Fontaine and Tall Paul plus DJ sets from the likes of Armand van Helden, Groove Armada, Roger Sanchez and more.
