Creamfields named best ‘Instagrammable’ festival in the UK

A DARESBURY music festival is the most “Instagrammable” festival in the UK, according to new research.

Creamfields took the top spot with over 482,000 hashtags on Instagram.

The original festival held in Daresbury was renamed Creamfields North due to the festival celebrating its 25th anniversary and heralding the second weekend of the Creamfields South festival in Hylands Park, Chelmsford – attracting more UK festival-goers.

Creamfields North takes place in Daresbury this summer from August 25-28.

The research was conducted by fabric experts from Dalston Mill Fabrics who dove into Instagram statistics and analyzed the number of Instagram hashtags for the most popular UK festivals.

They used the Influencer Marketing Hub hashtag analysis tool to see which ones got the most photos from the public.

Second place was Glastonbury with the hashtag #Glastonburyfestival used on over 185,000 Instagram posts

The five-day festival takes place in Pilton, Somerset and has hosted some of the most iconic festival performances the UK has ever seen, including David Bowie in 2000, Beyonce in 2011, Jay Z in 2008 and Stormzy in 2019.

Boardmasters, held on Fistral Beach in Cornwall, is the third most Instagrammable.

It is also the only festival in the ranking to be held on a beach.

Wireless, Isle of Wight Festival and BST Hyde Park were among the other most Instagrammable festivals in the UK.
