Event Information:

The festival is run by the people behind Liverpool's famous Cream clubbing brand. It has been held in Buenos Aires since 2001, and in 2005 more than 60,000 people gathered to dance for 17 hours. It ran in Ireland for three years from 2000 to 2002 in Punchestown Racecourse.

Cream, based at the Nation nightclub in Liverpool, is one of the best-known night clubs in the UK. Cream began life as a weekly house music night at Nation, and ran in this format for 10 years, from October 1992 to June 2002. Over the ten years of weekly Saturday nights at Nation, the club played host to many international DJ superstars, including Paul Oakenfold (who was resident DJ throughout 1997 and 1998), Paul van Dyk, Sasha plus early exclusive DJ sets from The Chemical Brothers.

Cream still holds sell-out events at Nation - typically four per year, at Easter, May Bank Holiday, October/November (for their annual birthday bash) and Boxing night. The Cream-owned Nation complex is made up of 3 separate rooms, each of varying shape and size; the 1000 capacity Main room, 700 capacity Annexe and 1300 capacity Courtyard. Since Cream ended their weekly events, Nation has held other events, such as Godskitchen, Chibuku, MTV, Medication at Nation and Yo-Yo. Daresbury is a small rural village, civil parish and ward in the unitary authority of Halton and part of the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. It is covered by the Weaver Vale constituency.
