Creamfields Licence Granted + Promise A Quality Event With Increased Security & Safety Measures
This years Creamfields festival has been given the green light and issued its licence. Halton Borough Council granted the licence for the world famous music festival at its Regulatory committee meeting last night. This year the award winning festival will celebrate its 10th anniversary and run over 2 days and feature camping for the first time. With a fresh approach to this years event some positive changes have been put in place including reducing the festival capacity by 10,000 to 40,000 each day. Building on the success of last years event which saw an 80% drop in reported incidents, Creamfields have this year promised a quality event. Working closely with Cheshire Police increased measures are in place to ensure a safe and secure event, this years crime reduction strategy includes:-
24 hour policing and security throughout the main arena and campsite
Over 500 security personnel, stewards and heavy policing throughout the site
Increased CCTV cameras throughout the site and campsite
Metal Detector at all entrances
Spotter teams at all entrances and throughout the site
Increased lighting in and around the site and lighting throughout the campsite
Increased security bag checks
Information points around the site to help people navigate their way around
Also Challenge 21 will be in operation again which aims to prevent under age persons gaining access to the festival and also consuming alcohol.
A Cream spokesperson says: “We are delighted to have been granted the licence for this years 10th Anniversary festival. Working closely with Cheshire Police and the local authority we aim to make this years event safe, enjoyable and the best one yet”
Inspector Debbie Dodd from Cheshire Police said: “It’s important to Cheshire Police that those attending the event have an enjoyable time in a safe environment. Police officers will be there to provide reassurance to both people attending the event and the local community. Our primary role is to look after the safety of the public but we will take positive action against anyone committing a criminal offence or acting in a disorderly way and hope to send a clear message to those would seek to spoil the enjoyment of others.”
Jim King (Creamfields Event Manager) says: Creamfields was a great success last year on many levels including an 80% reduction on crime. We aim to improve this statistic further and make the festival a safe and enjoyable weekend for everyone.”

Here is an interview with Sasha from movement magazine about Involver 2 which we’re all rather excited about in the shop. Quite an interesting read: ‘We caught up with Sasha this WMC during the Global Underground Involver2 party and asked him a few quick one’s about the new album. How is Involver2 going to be different from the last outing? This album is going to be a pure electronic album. The drums are pure 808s and 909s. It gets a four on the floor really quickly and stays there. The last album started off with a shimmery guitar record and went off into spanish guitars and ended up with Ulrich Schnauss at 140bpm. This record is much more leading and much more pure but really uplifting. You could say it’s more minimal but it is not a minimal record. Are you working with anyone new on this album. We’ve got Home Video, Apparat, Teflon Tel Aviv, M83, the track list is sick. How do you keep up with the change in sounds and managing to stay fresh? Well basically as a dj you play the best records that you have got at your disposal…and play what excites you the most and keeping playing and try to make best each set. What about as a producer are your techniques changing? All the time. I went out and bought about $2000 worth of guitar pedals and ever single sound I’ve got has been processed with a guitar pedal…To go through those is so much more statisfying then opening up a plugin and spending 5 hours with it. You have also been releasing tracks under your new label Emfire what been the driving force behind that? We have a lot of tracks that we finished we were thinking what should we do with these. Ten years ago we would have signed a record deal but there are no record labels anymore that want to sign deals so I figured why not just do my own. I don’t have an office its just downloads and a digital ep and it has a whole new track and feel to the releases of the track. Look for Involver2 release later this year.’

We’ve known John Graham (aka Quivver) at 3 Beat for about 12 years, as he as always been a loyal customer here.. and so we know that he’s been working on an album for pretty much that ammount of time too…. finishing on several occasions, and then deciding to change it…and then done it again.. and then changed his mind, well its finally done and dusted and about to hit the streets!
The album ‘Dirty Nails & Vapour Trails’ is coming on Quivvers own Boz Boz label and is coming some time in June. A 10 tracker with mostly previously unavailable stuff, then if you’ve ever liked this mans grooves, you will be needing this in your life!

Derrick Carter is playing Aztec @ The Carling Academy in Liverpool on Friday 11th April supported by Jemmy! We can’t wait for this, we remember when Derrick came into 3 Beat last time he played at Aztec and bought a load of quality vinyl… but much to our surprise he bought a copy of ‘Fedde le Grande – Put your hands up for detroit’, weird eh!?
