Avicii and Calvin Harris will headline Creamfields festival this summer.

The former will appear on the South Stage at the festival, which takes place between August 22 and 24 and this year returns to its home in Daresbury in Cheshire. As well as Avicii, deadmau5 tops the festival's North Stage.

Calvin Harris will then headline the North Stage on August 24, while Tiesto will head up the South Stage. They will be joined on the bill by Afrojack, Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki, Armin Van Buuren, Showtek, Steve Angello, Hardwell, Eric Prydz, Annie Mac, Skream, Pete Tong, Fatboy Slim, Nervo and Alesso. There will also be sets from Duke Dumont, Paul van Dyk, Dirty South, Jaguar Skills and Gorgon City among others.

Last year, Avicii's single 'Wake Me Up' became one of the UK's biggest selling singles of all time. According to the Official Charts Company, the 24-year-old Swedish producer and DJ's track broke through the million copies sales barrier in October 6. The track is the 140th single to reach this milestone in British chart history, and the third to do so in 2013 after Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky' and Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines'.

In 2012, the final day of the festival was cancelled after flooding made the festival site unusable. Organisers made around £500,000 improvements to the site before the 2013 event, which was headlined by The Prodigy. Tickets for Creamfields 2014 are available from 10am on Friday, February 28.
