Creamfields Festival began in 1998 and has risen to become one of Europe's premier electronic/dance music festivals. It is held every summer on the August bank holiday in Daresbury, Cheshire, England. It includes two days of camping and pulsating beats. Some of the most renowned electronic acts such as Deadmau5, DJ Tiesto, the Chemical Brothers, David Guetta and Paul Van Dyk have graced Creamfield's stages. The famous Liverpool-based Cream clubbing brand began the festival and holds it to this day. Since its inception, Creamfields Festivals have sprung up throughout the world, in Prague, Lisbon, Buenos Aires and Santiago, among others.

Creamfields' Festival Beginnings

Cream is based in the Nation nightclub in Liverpool, England. It began as a once weekly house music night and ran this way for ten years. Cream nights helped to launch some of the biggest names in house music. The Nation stopped holding the weekly Cream nights in 2002 and since then has had 4 sell-out Cream events.

Before Creamfields Festival was held at its current location in Daresbury it was held on the Old Airfield in Liverpool. At first, the festival was not a camping festival in the way that Reading or Glastonbury, two other notable UK festivals, are.

Creamfields Festival Today

In 2009, only its second year as a camping festival, Creamfields won a UK Festival Award. It has evolved from nightly dance nights in a Liverpool club to a festival that draws in more than 60,000 people every year. There are eight separate venues to see acts, including the main stage. It has become an international destination bringing in dance minded people from all over the UK and Europe. With Creamfields Festivals being held throughout the world, it is poised to become one the largest dance music networks on earth.
