Creamfields slashes ticket prices in face of recession

Summer dance festival Creamfields has reduced the price of hospitality and general tickets for this year's event in response to the economic downturn.


In association with clubbing bible Mixmag, the first 5,000 camping and weekend tickets will be sold at £100, which is £20 cheaper than any of its competitors.

Hospitality tickets have also been reduced by £25, while day tickets have been frozen at 2008 prices.

"We are in the midst of a recession, with most people having to tighten their belts, so we've made the first 5,000 tickets as cheap as we possibly can," said Creamfields CEO James Barton. "I hope this goes a little way to easing the cash burden for the people who have been there for us through thick and thin. On a first come, first served basis, it will be our most dedicated fans who will benefit."

Tickets for the legendary Cheshire event, taking place from 29-30 August, go on general sale at 9am this Friday, 3 April.
