Due to popular demand, Creamfields – the UK’s No.1 dance festival – have just announced a third day. The event which takes place in Daresbury, Cheshire on August Bank Holiday weekend will now open its gates for campers on Friday 26th August.

Becoming a 3 day camping event will not only improve ease of access to the site for festivalgoers but there will also be an array of entertainment on offer within the main event site including a showcase of the Swedish House Mafia movie ‘Take One’ which charts the lives of the International DJ trio over 2 years covering 15 countries and 285 shows.

Friday also sees the debut of two ‘Silent Disco’ arenas at the festival, the first of which will be hosted by Size Matters, Steve Angello’s world famous party brand, with performances from Steve’s latest Size Records protégés Tim Mason and Third Party plus more to be announced.

Creamfields also welcomes Mixmag’s monthly party ‘That Mixmag Thing’ to host the second silent disco arena with performances from the Scratch Perverts, BBC Radio 1’s Jaymo & Andy George, Brookes Brothers, Futurebound, Clique DJ’s and more. The mag’s popular night began just over a year ago and has already seen a host of hot new electronic acts pass through its doors as well as the odd superstar DJ so expect no less from their Creamfields debut.

Campers arriving on the Friday will also be able to chill out at the festival’s on-site cinema which will be showing a collection of iconic clubbing films as well as enjoying all the fun of the fair, stalls and more.The main arena site’s food and drink stalls will also be open for the new arrivals.

Access to the event on Friday is limited and only open to festival goers camping at the event. Tickets will go on general sale 10am Tuesday 3rd May. Any existing camping ticket holders wishing to purchase a Friday ticket for £20 (standard)/ £30 (hospitality) will be contacted by their ticket agent with details on how to book.

Demand from fans to introduce a Friday opening has been high since Creamfields became a two-day camping event in 2008. Selling out in record time over the last 2 years, 2011 is already on course to eclipse last year’s success.

This year Creamfields have secured one of the biggest dance line ups of the year which will see performances from the likes of The Chemical Brothers, David Guetta, Tiёsto, Swedish House Mafia, Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk to name a few.

Creamfields spokesperson comments: “We are delighted to be able to announce a third day to the festival, which has been growing year on year. Those choosing to arrive on the Friday will not only benefit from improved access into the site, but they will be able to have the pick of the campsites pitching closer to the arena site if they wish. It also enables people travelling long distances the chance to pitch up earlier, saving a long journey through the night for many”
