Creamfields is one of the UK's biggest dance festivals and is held in Cheshire every year. It takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend in Daresbury and will run over four days.

The festival runs from 23rd to 26th August and this is the 13th year that the event has been held in Cheshire.

Officers from Cheshire police are working closely with the organisers, local authorities, parish councils and residents. Our main priorities are to support the Event Organisers to deliver a safe event for festival goers and to minimise disruption for residents during the event.

  • Crime will be dealt with robustly and positive action will be taken
  • Measures will be in place to deal with a variety of issues including crime and disorder, drugs and increased traffic around the site
  • This event is for over 18s - wristbands will be given to ticketholders once they have provided satisfactory proof of age. The wristbands will be of a type that cannot be removed and transferred to other people. The Challenge 21 scheme will also be in operation on site – festival goers can expect to be asked for photographic proof of age.
