Creamfields festival has announced £2m worth of investment to its site in Daresbury, Cheshire.

The money will go towards improving areas such as security, parking, water supply, signage and more.

2020 sees Creamfields celebrate 15 years in Daresbury. After starting as a one-day dance music event in 1998, it has grown to attract 70,000 music fans every August Bank holiday weekend.

Organisers say: “Creamfields’ success rests upon its continued investment to evolve and improve, and listening to the valuable input and feedback from fans who attend year on year. It’s with this commitment to delivering the best possible show that 2020 will mark a new era for Creamfields, with a £2 million investment going towards a number of key areas to ensure a better and safer customer experience.”

Some of the areas that will be a key priority include:

  • Improvements to security and staffing
  • Car Park CCTV including 24-hour manned patrols
  • Installation of a new water supply and ring main system
  • More water points located across the site
  • Better signage throughout
  • Review and investment into increasing the camping space available on site
  • Improved shower and toilet facilities
  • More cleaning staff & supervisors
  • Increased visibility of welfare staff across the event arena and campsites
