The one day dance festival had to move location this year, after development work at its original old Liverpool airport home in Speke forced the organisers to find a new site.
Obviously finding a suitable place for 45,000 clubbers, and a few booming soundsystems is no mean feat.
But Cream have done it, and Creamfields will take place for definite on Saturday 26th August at a field in Daresbury, Halton, Cheshire.
"We were always confident in the strength of the application and we are now looking forward to putting on what will be a superb show."
Unlike the recent treatment of the Hi:Fi North festival in Northumbria, Creamfields has been widely welcomed by Halton's local community - a recent independent survey of over 1,000 residents in Halton and Warrington showing that more than 90% were in favour of the event coming to Daresbury.
Economic WindfallLocal businesses and tourism leaders are all keen to cash in on the expected £3m economic windfall
caused by Creamfields.
A study carried out at Creamfields 2004 by The Mersey Partnership estimated that each clubber attending the event spent more than £90.
Local businesses expected to benefit include bus, taxi and rail companies, plus pubs, restaurants, hotels, guest houses and bed and breakfast accommodation.
