Ahead of the dance party, promoters have unveiled the main stage plans for Creamfields 2013, which will feature the biggest stage production ever seen in the UK.

The brand new stage structure will be three times the size of 2012, spanning 60 metres wide and 18 metres high – the equivalent of 6 x 4 double decker buses – and will be fitted with seven LED screens, promising an unforgettable visual show.

To complement the new stage production, organisers will also be installing six FX towers either side of the crowd, packed with lasers, pyrotechnics and FX to provide a total 360 degree production experience.

A statement from Creamfield added: “That’s not all, over the past six months we have been developing a production package to outshine anything seen at the festival before including six different pyrotechnic packages including the largest flame system range in Europe, aptly named the ‘Hurricane’.

“Turning up the heat with our pyro packages, we’ve also got something too cool you down.

“If you have ever visited Cream Ibiza and stood under the ice cannons then get ready for their debut at Creamfields.

“Firing from our brand new FX towers, we’re going to hit the crowd with 20 metres of nitrogen decimating it in seconds, leaving a low lying cool mist to refresh everyone for the next track.

“Finally, as one of the most important aspects of any electronic show, we have put together a breathtaking laser package, which will cover the crowd from the stage and the FX towers before hitting it with the mega shooter, powershot and stadium shot confetti cannons capable of blowing confetti up to 50 metres.”

To top off an unforgettable festival, there will also be a spectacular firework display above the stage.

Creamfields UK 2013 takes place from Friday, August 23rd to Sunday, August 25.
