Since 2006, Creamfields has been welcoming party goers with open arms to its current site of the Daresbury Estate in Cheshire. Of course, the legendary dance festival has been entertaining the masses for many years prior. But it is the present Warrington location that continues, year on year, to draw in dance fans from not just all corners of the UK, but from across the world. And 2014 is set to continue this global phenomenon.
Running as always for 3 days over the August bank holiday weekend, Creamfields 2014 will play host to some of the best live dance acts and DJ’s around. Across its many stages and arenas will appear current successful names such as Avicii, Sub Focus, Tiesto, Gorgon City and Duke Dumont, alongside favourite household names with the likes of Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Fatboy Slim and Pete Tong continuing to work the crowds into a dance frenzy. After winning the accolade for Best Dance Event at the UK Festival Awards for the 6th time last year, event organisers have pulled out all the stops to make Creamfields 2014 the best to date. This year brings double the action with the addition of a second huge outdoor main stage, identical to the single main stage of events past, and a wealth of arenas offering the best in Electro, Techno and House spread across the massive Daresbury Estate.
Since its festival debut at a site in Winchester in 1998, Creamfileds has continued to grow in success year in year. Moving to the Old Liverpool Airfield in 1999, the festival stayed a stones throw from its spiritual home until relocating to yet a bigger site in 2006. Here it remains, on the Daresbury Estate in Warrington, continuing to attract worldwide festival goers. Its global success extends beyond the crowds that flock to the UK event however. Creamfields festivals have been held all over the world from Argentina to Ireland, Poland to Peru. Brazil and Australia continue to hold their Creamfileds festival on an annual basis.
Running from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th August, Creamfields is commonly known as the final furore of the festival season. Tickets start from £80 for a standard Saturday only ticket. Options are available for 2 and 3 day passes as well as camping and non-camping tickets. For those who prefer to enjoy their festivals in comfort, the Daresbury Estate is easily accessible from Chester, a mere half hours drive away. If you prefer to leave your car further afield from the grounds, Creamfields also operates shuttle bus services from nearby Warrington and Runcorn.
