The partnership will allow festival-goers to leave valuable documents like passports and driving licenses at home. Instead
they will be able to apply for a proof of age card online where they will receive 10% discount when they apply for single
Revellers will be given a wristband onsite once they have proved that they are above the legal drinking age, so they can continue the weekend without being IDed.
Speaking about the initiative Carol Brodie of VALIDATE UK said; "Carrying a VALIDATE UK card at Creamfields means you don’t need to take valuable documents like passports and driving licences and because they are PASS accredited they will be accepted for the purchase of alcohol. There's a fantastic line up with a dedicated team working behind the scenes to make it so….have a grand time!"
Fatboy Slim and Kasabian will headline the festival which takes place at Daresbury, Cheshire from 23-24 August. Soulwax, The Gossip, Simian Mobile Disco and many more will play over the weekend. Click HERE for the full line-up and more infomation on the festival.
