Creamfields 2011 organisers have revealed that they have extended the festival to three days with the site open to campers on Friday 26 August.
Bosses hope to improve ease of access to the site by opening doors early and will provide entertainment including a screening of the Swedish House Mafia documentary ‘Take One’.
Friday will also see two ‘Silent Disco’ arenas, the first of which is hosted by Size Matters with performances from Tim Mason and Third Party, with more to be announced.
The second silent disco is hosted by That Mixmag Thing and will feature Scratch Perverts, Jaymo & Andy George, Brookes Brothers, Futurebound, Clique DJs and more.
“We are delighted to be able to announce a third day to the festival, which has been growing year on year.” A spokesperson for Creamfields 2011 said.
“Those choosing to arrive on the Friday will not only benefit from improved access into the site, but they will be able to have the pick of the campsites pitching closer to the arena site if they wish. It also enables people traveling long distances the chance to pitch up earlier, saving a long journey through the night for many.”
Access to the event on Friday is limited to those with camping tickets.
Tickets go on general sale 10am Tuesday 3 May.
Existing camping ticket holders wishing to purchase a Friday ticket for £20 (standard), £30 (hospitality) will be contacted by their ticket agent with details on how to book.
As previously confirmed, The Chemical Brothers, David Guetta and Magnetic Man all appear at Creamfields 2011.
