Deadmau5 returns to the UK next month to play Creamfields Festival and in September to perform at London’s Roundhouse as part of the iTunes Festival. He will perform on September 9 and joins the likes of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Biffy Clyro, Mumford & Sons and Jack White in performing at the event.
