What to Bring

Don’t forget your ID. Creamfields is strictly an 18’s and over event, and we will be operating a strict Challenge 21 policy.

If you’re lucky enough to look under 21 you will be asked to prove you are over 18 when you buy alcohol. Please see here for all acceptable forms of ID.

Make sure you come prepared to Creamfields. Bring enough with you to get through the weekend but make sure you don’t have too much to carry as there are no pass outs at Creamfields. Festivals can really test your endurance skills when the weather is bad, so make sure you are prepared for any changes in weather conditions.

Travel Advice

Please make sure you plan your journey to and from Creamfields. We want you to have the best time ever, so make sure you keep an eye on traffic updates via social media so that you can avoid getting caught up in long queues and congestion.

When you arrive, you’re going to be excited and keen to get amongst the action but make sure you make note of where you’ve parked and what field your car is in, the car parks are all letter coded. Remember to turn off your engine, switch off any lights and lock your car.

After a weekend of partying, it’s important that you are fit to drive if you are the designated driver, so make sure you’ve had a good night’s sleep.  It can be very busy when leaving the festival so make sure you factor in time for any queues. Take regular breaks, stay alert, and keep the windows open to provide a continuous supply of fresh air.

There are various other ways of travelling to Creamfields, please see here for more information.

If you have a non camping ticket and are staying off site, always use licensed cabs and approved methods of transport. The pick-up and drop off point for taxis is at the North Gate.

When travelling around the area, please be respectful of the local residents, the festival wouldn’t take place without their support. Please keep the noise down, use the bins for any litter and don’t trespass on people’s property.


Please note all bars & food concessions at Creamfields are cashless. Only cards & contactless + Apple Pay accepted.

Ticket Fraud

We would always advise customers to purchase tickets through our official ticket outlets…

To avoid buying a fake or cancelled ticket:

  • Do not buy from an unofficial ticket agent this includes viagogo, ebay, stubhub etc as there is no way of proving the ticket you are buying is legitimate and if you unknowingly buy a fake ticket you will not be allowed access to the event.
  • Do not buy from internet auction sites
  • Check the payment pages are secure by looking for a padlock symbol in the address bar and making sure the website address begins with ‘https’.
  • Do not buy from another individual or tout, either in advance in your home town, on social media or outside the event

Ticket Cloning

Ticket cloning is where someone gets hold of the unique bar code on your ticket, copies it and then either sells the cloned ticket on, or uses it to enter the event before you.  If the bar code has already been scanned, when you arrive you won’t be able to get in.

To avoid this, don’t post pictures of any type of ticket on social media with the bar code showing before the event happens.
