Live Nation has unveiled that it will invest £2 million towards site infrastructure at this year’s Creamfields. The investment will “revolutionise” key areas of the festival site, enhancing accessibility, sustainability, and amenities, whilst also introducing upgrades to essential services across the grounds.

Key highlights of the investment include:

Indoor main stage: Unveiling a new 30,000 capacity indoor main stage, designed to increase coverage in case of inclement weather.

Walkway access: Construction of five miles of new walkways from South Car Parks to Campsite village and Gold, Silver, Cream and Blue Campsites, ensuring easier access for campers. Plus, installation of additional trackway across the site to improve access.

Enhanced amenities: Introduction of a food and drink village within the event arena providing seating and shelter, as well as a sheltered chillout area with seating located inside the campsite village. Plus, expanding food offerings to include budget-friendly meal deals and enhancing menus to accommodate specific dietary needs.

Expanded accommodation Options: Expanding the highly sought-after Dreamfields and Pre-Pitch accommodation options on site, which consistently sell-out.

Sustainability: A new sustainability and community campaign, working with BetterNotStop. Plus, the introduction of a new refuse system in the event arena to improve recycling and waste removal, complementing the festival’s existing sustainability commitment.

Infrastructure enhancements: Implementation of new and improved water pipeline system installed across the site, improving the quantity and pressure of water for drinking points, toilets and showers, a full-fibre comms system into campsite areas and village to improve connectivity for traders delivering a faster service.  Introducing a wheel wash system for site vehicles to improve road surfaces and alleviate traffic congestion.

Enhanced infrastructure: Extensive improvements to the field drainage systems to mitigate potential disruptions caused by adverse weather conditions.
