Nostalgic Cream fans can party in Nation’s main room once more as the venue is reconstructed for an anniversary special.
Original parts from the superclub’s now demolished Wolstenholme Square home are being used to resurrect the space, along with floor plans and architectural photographs.
The ambitious project is in honour of 2017 being the 20th anniversary of Creamfields and the 25th anniversary of Cream at Nation.
Dubbed the club’s ‘spiritual home’, the Nation main room will be brought back to life at this summer’s Creamfields festival, which takes place from 24-27 August.
The original nightclub and music venue closed its doors for the final time in December 2015 and has since been demolished to make way for Elliot Group’s mixed-use redevelopment of Wolstenholme Square.
A Cream spokesperson says: “Cream at Nation ignited the electronic music scene in the UK, becoming one of the world’s most iconic clubs and setting the blueprint for club culture as we know it today.
“The news will come as music to the ears for the thousands of Cream fans who graced its dancefloor during its reign.”
This year’s Creamfields also features a packed line-up of acts including deadmau5, Stormzy, Eric Prydz and The Chainsmokers.
