You better all be bracing yourselves for Creamfields 2014, Liverpool’s second favorite export, which will be hitting Buenos Aires today.

Widely heralded/self-proclaimed as “the most important electronic music festival in the world” (maybe even in South America), this year you can expect an estimated hoard of nearly 80,000 party animals to gravitate their way down towards the Autódromo de Buenos Aires in Villa Lugano.

Creamfields is Argentina’s most popular – and long-running – music festival since it’s awkward first arrival in 2001 amidst massive economic meltdown. However, it has grown bigger and better since the first 18,000 braves ventured up to San Isidro over ten years ago, and this Today the party kicks off yet again at 4 PM with headliners you’ll have heard of even if you spent the last decade hibernating in a small cave in Himalayan Tibet (David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Dimitri Vegas). Also featuring are those weird sort-of Swedish-sounding DJs whose names you have no idea how to pronounce (Sven Vath, Gaiser, R3HAB) and all those other names you’ve never heard of in your life but will pretend to know intimately in order to appear hip and knowledgeable (everyone else).

While the keener music-lovers and hedonists among you have already snagged all those Early Bird tickets, you can still buy General Admission online on Multiticket for a modest service charge of only $70 (for a website? What?), or alternatively, you could hunt down that friend of a friend who knows someone selling tickets for a fractionally cheaper price and join in on the last-minute scramble.

Meanwhile, the porteños are going wild. The first guy I met when after landing in BA told me his son has a Creamfields tattoo (you do not want to know where) – apparently, it’s a thing. Yes. Creamfields here is quite popular.

And just check out these guys:

The Creamfields Bus leaves Magdalena’s Party (Thames 1795) at 8pm, and if you’re really unhinged, you can top off over twelve hours of fiesta with an after-party in Palermo on Sunday morning, but you should probably get some help.
