Creamfields 2014

The UK's definitive dance event

This guide is for the 2014 edition of the festival, but we have a new one for 2015:

The Basics

Born in 1998, the ‘original’ dance festival 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. It’s famous for many things not least its heritage but its consistent delivery of a world class line-up and unbeatable atmosphere.  

The success of Creamfields has attracted worldwide attention, which has led to the festival being staged around the world from Australia, Brazil, Chile, Russia and Spain to name a few. Over the last 16 years it has spurned many imitators but the UK edition of Creamfields continues to raise the benchmark when it comes to live events.  

The 3 day camping festival which returns to Daresbury in Cheshire is already on course for a 5th consecutive sell-out, unsurprising considering the lineup, which includes over 200 of the world's biggest and most revered electronic artists, who will be performing across 11 stages for 3 days of madness over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Getting There

Our Recommendations

What We Love

  • As its many awards - and thousands of worldwide fans - can attest, Creamfields is a sell out each year because of the vast variety of dance music on show. With 11 stages to fill, organisers get the best DJs, producers and live acts in house, techno, minimal, drum n bass, dubstep, trance and electronica together for the weekend, so don't just get caught at the main stage - discover as much as you can.

  • If you want to really have the backstage, VIP experience, then try Hospitality tickets. They include fast-track entry into Creamfields, free car parking, exclusive access to the Hed Kandi Hospitality arena – a fully furnished marquee with leather sofas, indoor and outdoor heated seating areas, a fully stocked bar, a cocktail bar and Luxury toilets - plus a complimentary meal served up each day.

    Hospitality campers also get a dedicated Hospitality campsite, access to Luxury camping facilities which includes hot showers and proper toilets, plus access to the standard campsite for those who have friends with standard camping tickets.

What To Know

  • Creamfields is close to two major UK airports. It's a 25 minute drive from Manchester Airport, which serves destinations worldwide, and 30 minutes from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, which has flights all across Europe. If you wish to arrive by train, the nearest stations to the festival are Runcorn Station and Warrington Central with Liverpool Lime Street the nearest Main Line station.

    There are direct trains to Liverpool Lime Street from Manchester airport (1 hour 7 minutes) and Liverpool John Lennon Airport (11 minutes). Direct trains also take 7 minutes to Runcorn from Liverpool John Lennon Airport and 18 minutes to Warrington Central. There are also direct trains to Runcorn and Warrington from much of the UK, including London and Birmingham. Please check that services are running as engineering works usually take place over the Bank Holiday weekend.
