Cheshire police urge you not to risk bringing any illegal or unknown substances to the event. If you are found to be in possession of controlled drugs, new psychoactive substances or weapons, you are liable to prosecution. The possession of any amount of a controlled drug is a criminal offence and the supply of a controlled drug is an even more serious offence. Carrying controlled substances for others, such as a group of friends, is still considered as possession with intent to supply and will lead to prosecution and a likely prison sentence. We have countless examples of this happening, and it ruins people’s lives. No illegal drug-taking can be assumed to be safe, and there is no safe way to take them.

Think before entering the festival – Don’t bring any prohibited or illegal items with you or use the surrender (amnesty) bins provided to dispose of any controlled drugs, new psychoactive substances or weapons.

We are always thinking of ways to reduce the amount of crime at events but we need you to do your bit too:

  • Put money, tickets, credit cards and mobile phones in a zipped pocket or use a money belt.
  • Only bring what you need, excess things that you don’t need are just more things you could lose.
  • Avoid bringing or withdrawing large amounts of cash and keep it safe at all times. There are cash machines on the site should you need a top up.
  • Postcode the property that you do bring to the event so it is identifiable.
  • If you arrive by car, ensure that you leave the doors and windows secure and remove any items from view including sat navs, stereos, CD’s and mobile phones
  • Use the lockers located in the Campsite Village for personal items you wish to store safely.
  • Only bring the essential bank cards. Make a note of the numbers and store at home to make cancellation easier if they do disappear.
  • Track your items, more phones and tablets have GPS tracking and can be located via an app such as “Find My iPhone”.



Project Servator aims to deter, detect and disrupt a range of criminal activity, including terrorism.

Cheshire Police officers are experienced and specially trained to spot the tell-tale signs that someone is planning or preparing to commit this type of crime. There is nothing to suggest that Creamfields will be the target of this type of incident, but you can help us to make sure of it.

Please report anything that doesn’t feel right, for example, an unattended item or someone acting suspiciously, by telling a police officer, informing site security, or calling 999 if it’s an emergency

We are working with Counter Terrorism Policing to encourage live music fans to #BeSafeBeSound.

Counter Terrorism Policing is collaborating with the UK’s biggest music venues, arenas and festivals to deliver vital safety advice to the public.

We all have a role to play in keeping each other safe. Your safety is our priority and that’s why we have a comprehensive array of measures in place.
You can play your part by trusting your instincts, and if you see something that doesn’t feel right, tell security. Our teams will take every report seriously. You won’t be wasting their time.

Here are some quick tips to help you have a safe and enjoyable time:

  • Arrive early, allowing more time for security checks and measures.
  • Be patient with security checks. It might seem inconvenient, but they are in place to help you.
  • Keep it simple and minimise what you carry. The more you bring, the longer it will take to get in.
  • Stay alert and look out for each other. If you see something that doesn’t feel right, tell security. Don’t leave it to someone else.
  • Don’t leave bags unattended. Never agree to look after a stranger’s bag, no matter how genuine they seem.

Have an amazing time, and if you see something that doesn’t feel right, report it to security straight away. Thank you for playing your part. #BeSafeBeSound.
