Creamfields is Go, Go , Go

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.”

Prydz/Pryda – Fabric Test

Does Eric Prydz ever sleep? Or does he just sit there locked in his room making anthems? 3 Beat Records staff are al amazed by how consistant this chap is – he’s had poppy hits under his Eric Prydz name, Pryda is his underground guise and the Cirez D is when he wears his techno hat – yet they are all outstanding… how des he do it?

Fabric Test is the latest one that we’ve heard, and its huge – check it out when Sasha and Digweed dropped in in Miami

Guru Josh – Infinity 2008!

 guru josh infinity 3 beat

Rave griffin Guru Josh and his magical saxaphone return remixed for 2008, and its rather cool to boot! 3 Beat Records have just taken stock of this, and it made us giggle… should it have been left to depths of history or should it be back all freshened up, like he\s just been wiped down with a wet wipe by his mum?

Remix honours go to Klaas who add the typical current electro groove thats big Globally right now, and then Jerome Isma-ae who teases bits of the sax and then goes into a virtually sax free techie slammer of a mix!

2008? Time for the Guru?
