United Kingdom | 28 February 2008
Creamfields is gearing up for its biggest year ever with a total of 13 festivals planned to take place around the world.
Pioneers of the original dance festival concept, Creamfields will be celebrating its 10th birthday with
a record number of events, spanning the globe.
New events have been announced for 2008 in Czech Republic, Malta,
Romania and Spain, in addition to established destinations like Brazil, Mexico, Peru and Poland.
But, of course, the biggest
celebrations will be saved for its flagship UK festival in Daresbury, Cheshire, on the August
bank holiday weekend.
Headliners are set to be revealed on Friday, 7 March, with organisers promising something
very special as the Liverpool-based festival also celebrates the city's European City Of Culture status.
CEO James Barton said: "The reputation of Creamfields is globally recognised as a quality festival
that delivers great line ups, great production, a great atmosphere and gives people a memorable experience, its taken a lot
of hard work, thought and energy to get to this point and the strength of the brand continues to grow.
UK are leaders in the global festival market and with a 10 year heritage Creamfields is at the forefront. This being our 10th
anniversary year was the perfect time to take Creamfields to new territories and we look forward to working with new partners
