More than 130 people were arrested across the Creamfields weekend.
A ‘majority’ of these were drug related, according to Cheshire Police.
The force said the dance music festival, held in Daresbury, is their ‘biggest event of the year’.
Sadly a 26-year-old from Cornwall, named locally as Joe Sheppard, passed away at the event on Friday (August 26).
An investigation into the death is ongoing, and detectives are awaiting the results of the post-mortem examination.
Inspector Stewart Sheer led the planning of the policing operation at Creamfields.
He said: “Once again we are able to look back on a successful event from a policing perspective, which would not have been possible without the co-operation between the organisers and other partners.
“I must also thank all of the officers who policed this year’s festival for their continued hard work, along with the officers and staff who assisted with the planning of this year’s event.
“Creamfields is our biggest event of the year, which comes at a time when many would want to spend time with family, so it is great credit to those who embrace the spirit of the event while carrying out an important job.”
Cheshire Police said they took on a ‘proactive approach’ with about 70,000 people attending the UK’s biggest dance music festival which ran from August 25-29.
A total of 137 arrests were made across the weekend, largely for possession and supply of drugs.
Others included weapon possession, assault and those wanted for other outstanding offences.
Elsewhere, almost 300 crimes were reported to officers on-site or via the 101.
Police and crime commissioner for Cheshire David Keane said: “I would like to thank members of the community for their co-operation and understanding prior to and throughout the event.
“I would also like to thank all of the officers, staff and volunteers for the dedication they have shown.
“As a result of careful planning and the commitment shown by officers we have been able to keep disruption caused by the event to a minimum. ”
The policing operation started on Thursday with the majority of festival goers heading to the site on Friday and Saturday morning.
Searches were a condition of entry and festival goers were asked to place any drugs or weapons in the bins provided at the entrance to the event arena.
Anyone found with drugs or weapons, having not placed them into the bins, were dealt with by police.
