With thousands of people across the UK planning to attend the festival this weekend, we’ve compiled the ultimate guide to Creamfields, including this year’s full line-up, location and travel information, and everything you need to know before you go to the festival.

Location and travel

Creamfields returns to its iconic location in Daresbury, Cheshire this weekend. The festival is based between Liverpool and Manchester and is easily accessible by car, train and coach.

Although Big Green Coach tickets are now sold out for all festival dates, the trains are still available. The nearest stations to the Creamfields site are Runcorn, Warrington Central, Warrington Bank Quay and Liverpool Lime Street. Those wishing to travel by train have been warned to plan ahead as engineering work is underway and trains will run on a limited schedule throughout the weekend.

Creamfields have designated shuttle buses departing from Liverpool, Manchester and Warrington each day. Shuttle tickets can be pre-ordered online to guarantee a seat, or purchased on the day of travel. The Liverpool Shuttle pick up location is on Elliott Street in the city center and takes approximately 50 minutes to reach the festival site.

For those traveling by car, organizers have warned not to use personal sat navs as roads will be closed around the festival site. Instead, dedicated signs will clearly indicate the route to the site.

Parking passes can be purchased on the day of the festival.

Entry requirements

Creamfields is strictly an 18+ event. Therefore, all ticket holders must present valid identification upon entry to the festival and when purchasing alcohol throughout the weekend.

All festival-goers must show their “Covid-19 status” to gain access to this year’s festival.

Covid-19 status can be demonstrated by providing proof of full vaccination which requires that both doses have been given, and the second dose must have taken place 14 days before the festival. NHS Covid Passes can be accessed via the NHS app or can be printed out prior to arrival.

A negative NHS Lateral Flow test taken before the day of travel to the festival can also be used, or evidence of natural immunity based on a positive PCR test within 180 days of the festival.

Tickets and general information

Tickets for Creamfields 2021 are now completely sold out. Organizers have warned to only buy resale tickets through trusted sites such as Ticketmaster or Skiddle.
