The History of Creamfields Festival
Since Creamfields festival attracted 25,000 people to Winchester for the August bank holiday of 1998, it has become widely known as the finale of the summer festival season in the UK.
To coincide with its growth in size and stature, Creamfields festival has set up camp at various locations around the country, moving up north from Winchester to Cream?s spiritual home of Liverpool at the Old Liverpool Airfield for six years until 2005. In 2006, Creamfields festival relocated a few miles away to its current home of Daresbury, near Runcorn in Cheshire.
While the Cream club nights are known for mainly playing house, Creamfields festival hosts artists from a wide range of the most popular genres in dance since Creamfields festival began, attracting fans of styles such as drum ‘n’ bass, house including hard, deep, tribal and funky, as well as indie.
Creamfields festival first international event was in 2000 at Punchestown Racecourse, Dublin, Ireland, including sets and performances from Cream resident Yousef, DJ Tiga, Sugababes, Faithless, Underworld, Mauro Picotto and Tom Middleton.
Beginning in 2001, the one-day Creamfields festival in Buenos Aires, Argentina has become the most successful international Creamfields festival. In 2005 it attracted 65,000 people, with a roster of international artists including The Prodigy and Danny Tenaglia, making it the biggest one-day festival in Latin America.
Last year’s Creamfield festival celebrated its ten year anniversary with a new two-day format, including the addition of camping. And with indie-dance acts like Kasabian, Ian Brown and Late Of The Pier on the bill, a new facet of musical development for Creamfields festival was added for future events.
In 2009, there was a total of 13 international Creamfields festival events, including Spain, Poland, Czech Republic, Mexico and Brazil.
