The installation is a dedicated television set that will be placed in the fields of the festival amongst the crowd, playing
visual arts through online film, moving image, videocasts and sound.
It has been set up by Liverpool John Moore's Site Gallery and Grizedale Arts with help from independent curator Sam Skinner as well.
FACT.TV will be broadcasting live from the festival online and on itunes with contributions from musicians, artists and festival-goers set to be broadcast on the main stage screens.
Paint Jam and Zap Graffiti will also be on-site doing live art on studio walls and showcasing some of Liverpool's top artistic talent.
Speaking about the art side of the festival, the site curator John Byrne said: "CreamTVfields provides an opportunity for Site and Grizedale Arts to participate in one of the country's best and most loved festivals and for artists to use Creamfields 10th Anniversary as a canvas for their ideas and energy.
"CreamTVfields will also allows the Creamfields audience (both at the festival and online) to experience this unique project via stage screens, mobile phone and the internet. With any luck, Creamfields and Contemporary Art may never be the same again."
