Creamfields has established itself as the crown jewel of dance festivals and continues to be in the Top 5 festivals in the UK alongside the likes of Glastonbury, V and Reading. Beginning life in Winchester in 1998, and the following year relocating to Liverpool, 2006 saw the festival move its new home amongst the rolling hills and meadows of Daresbury in Halton (25 mins from Liverpool).
It set out to provide the clubbing world with a bespoke large scale outdoor event and has gone on to become the most popular and renowned open air electronic music festival in the world attracting over 40,000 people every August Bank Holiday weekend. Creamfields is famous for many things but essentially for bringing together genre breaking pioneers from across the dj and live music spectrum. The structure of the 15 hour festival features the enormously successful Live Outdoor Stage and between 8-10 DJ only arenas, the fresh and unique character which in the past has featured a celebrity beach football tournament and first ever festival swimming pool and spa are all key to its success.
Creamfields is the only festival concept that has been successfully exploited on the global market. In June 2000 Creamfields Ireland was launched, with Creamfields Argentina not far behind. To date Creamfields has been staged in over 15 countries including Spain, Chile, Brazil, Ireland, Mexico, Poland, Czech Republic, Portugal and Argentina which attracts over 60,000 people alone and has become THE biggest electronic music festival in Latin America.
This year Creamfields celebrates its 10th Anniversary and having implemented some exciting positive changes to the line up will see the festival looking forward to the next 10 years. It continues to push the boundaries of popular culture and raise the benchmark by offering something over an above other festivals and in doing so has become an institution that has inspired a near religious devotion from its loyal followers.
