A number of top acts will appear at both events, including Fatboy Slim, Orbital, Stereo MCs, Crystal Method, and Josh Wink. Creamfields festivals are already set for July 23 in Dublin and Aug. 25 in Liverpool, England.

The Sept. 1 event will be held in the Riverhead section of Long Island, a short train trip from New York City. Along with the aforementioned acts, the festival will feature performances from Pete Tong, former Underworld DJ Darren Emerson, Max Graham, Timo Maas, Photek, Richie Hawtin, Uberzone, Scott Hardkiss, Scanty Sandwich, and many others. The outdoor event will be spread over one main stage and six smaller tents.

The Las Vegas festival will encompass the same staging system and will include performances from such acts as Basement Jaxx, Sandra Collins, Dave Ralph, and Dub Pistols, in addition to Fatboy Slim, Orbital, Wink, Crystal Method, and Stereo MCs. It will be held on the city's Las Vegas Boulevard.

Additional Creamfields festivals are planned for Buenos Aires (November 10) and Australia (the last quarter of the year), according to the event's official Web site.
