Creamfields reveals details of new Runway stage

Creamfields North is all set to return for another 70,000 capacity sell-out this August Bank Holiday weekend, with a new 20,000-capacity stage. Cream HQ unleashed plans for the stage, which is called Runway and presented by SHEIN.

Creamfields has consistently raised the bar in terms of festival production. For example, in 2016, Creamfields introduced Steel Yard, which has now become a permanent fixture. 2022 sees the organiser continuing to push the boundaries, joining forces with Lucid Creates, whose challenge was to create a “mind-blowing structure and 360 immersive experience” for the festival’s 25th anniversary.

Runway is an imposing large-scale industrial structure dominated by a huge overhead video screen. Enveloping fans by day, the structure then fades into the darkness as night falls, leaving the suspended visual spectacular to take over.
