Voted the 'sexiest festival' by VF readers last year, it appears Gnarls Barkley have heard the news. The band's rider for the forthcoming Creamfields includes a few items suggesting they might just be on the prowl...
The chart-topping US duo have been spotted schmoozing with the ladies at various festivals this summer and it seems they won’t be holding back at this month's Creamfields.
Their rider for the day includes 10 packets of Magnum condoms and a cat of nine tails whip, plus a menu that consists of two dozen Krispy Kreme donuts, blueberry and banana muffins, T-bone steaks and 50 Hershey bars.
A Creamfields source, who disclosed the info to VF, said: "It certainly looks like Cee Leo and Dangermouse are up for some action, however, we’re not sure how the 10 pairs of Mens white towelling socks will go down with the British ladies!
"Last year, Virtual Festivals readers voted Creamfields the sexiest festival with loads of festival goers getting jiggy. Gnarls Barkely must have read the news – but at least they've got a dressing room!"
Other demands from acts performing at this years 45,000-capacity festival are from football mad The Zutons, who have requested plasma screens in their dressing rooms so that they don’t miss their favourite team Liverpool in action.
In comparison, infamous hellraisers The Prodigy look to be taking things slightly easier. Their rider includes a packet of Cruncy Nut cornflakes, six bowls, six spoons and a bottle of Dom Perignon champagne.
The Creamfields source added: "It seems these boys love the simple things in life."
This years Creamfields festival takes place at Daresbury Estate, Halton, nr Liverpool, on Saturday 26 August, with headliners The Prodigy, Goldfrapp, The Zutons, and Gnarls Barkley all playing, alongside 10 arenas of the worlds biggest DJs.
