MORE than 60,000 revellers descended on Daresbury over the weekend to take in the heavyweight acts in dance music at Creamfields.

Festival goers poured in from Friday night to set up camp and ready themselves for three days of booze, dancing and electronica.

On Saturday, crowds lapped up headline performances from Deadmau5, Avicii and Steve Angello, while on Sunday it was the turn of Calvin Harris and Fatboy Slim.

Warrington Guardian:

One headline act - Dutch DJ Tiesto - failed to show after reporting plane problems in Las Vegas on the Creamfields Facebook page.

Tents were packed up as guests left bleary eyed on Monday, with many seen clad in wellies and carrying muddy tents in Warrington town centre.

Mud, is an understatement. Knee deep in places, spent Bank Holiday cleaning mini bus fleet, Mud everywhere, not only on floor. Traffic control could have been better, over an hour to get off site !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had the misfortune to travel along the A56 on Monday. Not only was the traffic management poor but more appalling was the litter that had been left on the grass verges together with hundreds (yes hundreds) of pairs of Wellington boots and discarded blankets and duvets. I try to give young people the benefit of the doubt as they do get a lot of bad press. However, this was indefensible. Why couldn't they take their rubbish home?

Maybe so but they shouldn't have to. What is wrong with putting your wellies, rubbish or whatever in your car boot - is it such an imposition?? Yes it may be full of mud but so what - suck it up and take it home.

yes its a terrible site but most of the stuff discarded is cleaned down and given to a charity that then sells the tents and other such salvageable equipment to raise funds.

Got me a lovely vango tent last year cheap as chips and didnt even smell of puke.
