VIDEO: Sun shines at Creamfields
12:24pm Tuesday 27th August 2013 in News
THE sun was shining for festival goers at Creamfields over August bank holiday weekend as thousands of revellers descended on Daresbury.
This year’s dance music event was a far cry from the floods that lead to sudden cancellation in 2012.
Instead visitors enjoyed three dry days of live music with outside stages attracting crowds of thousands.
The site remained largely intact with no repeat of the dangerous quagmire last year.
A rare headline performance form the Prodigy proved the biggest draw of the festival, while sets from Annie Mac, Steve Angello, Tiesto and Avicii also went down well.
For the first time music from the festival was streamed live online on the Creamfields website.
However, a range of acts cancelled including Nervo, Zedd, Andy C, while David Guetta was delayed, prompting an angry reaction on Facebook.
Organisers announced on Friday that Nervo and Zedd were instead playing at the MTV VMA Awards in America, leading fans to claim they should have been notified before buying tickets.
And Cream bosses said at 9.15pm on Sunday that headline act David Guetta was having transport difficulties because his plane had ‘caught on fire’ before take-off.
As guests left the site in Daresbury on Monday congestion was reported by police on the A57, causing delays around the town.
