CHESHIRE festival goers can celebrate this morning after Creamfields announced it has been granted a three year licence for its site in Daresbury.

Creamfields - which scooped the award for Best Dance Festival in the 2009 UK Festival Awards (the third time the festival has won the coveted award) - was granted the license last night by Halton Borough Council’s regulatory committee.

Following last year’s sell out show, which attracted a record breaking 60,000 people from across the UK, the team behind the festival have increased investment into site infrastructure for 2010, which will see bigger and better arenas and increased space and capacity in the campsites.

Event manager Jim King from Loudsound said: “This decision to grant the festival a three year license is a very important decision in that it clearly shows the confidence that the authorities have in Creamfields and it’s management team.

“The festival has now established itself at its new location in Cheshire as one of the largest, most popular and well operated electronic festivals in the world.”

In 2006 Creamfields relocated from Liverpool to its Daresbury home in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, and to coincide with its 10th Anniversary celebrations became a two day camping show in 2008.

The line up for this year’s show is to be announced soon.

Creamfields 2010 returns on Saturday, August 28 and Sunday, August 29.
