Cheshire Police previously revealed a total of 106 criminal offenses were reported during last year’s festival, which took place over the August bank holiday weekend.

Twenty-nine festival-goers were arrested, while the force also said 27 others were at risk of prosecution after being removed from the site.

But officers thanked the majority of law-abiding participants.

Superintendent Simon Parsonage, who led the police operation for Creamfields 2021, said: ‘I would like to take the opportunity to thank the vast majority of festival goers for their cooperation and behavior on their return to enjoy a great musical event and for all the agencies that have worked so well together throughout.

“At its peak almost 70,000 people were in attendance and given the numbers it is fair to say that crime and levels of disorder were low.

“People were in high spirits, clearly relishing the opportunity to enjoy events of this nature again after previous cancellations due to the pandemic.

“We have recognized that dance festivals of this nature tend to be associated with increased drug prevalence and, working with other agencies in the lead up to and over the weekend, we have sought to address this issue. . We had a clear discount policy in place followed by targeted searches at all entrances. »
