TENS of thou­sands of rev­ellers de­scended on Hal­ton for this year’s Cream­fields dance music fes­ti­val.

The ex­trav­a­ganza re­turned to the site in Daresbury for the 12th con­sec­u­tive year and around 70,000 fans at­tended.

It be­gan last Thurs­day and ran for four days over the Bank Hol­i­day week­end.

This year’s event was also the fes­ti­val’s 20th an­niver­sary.

Dead­mau5 and Eric Prydz joined forces and per­formed live to­gether for the first time in the UK in the Steel Yard Arena on Fri­day in their only Euro­pean show of the year.

The Chainsmok­ers, An­nie Mac and Sigma were among those to per­form on the BBC Ra­dio 1 Stage on Fri­day, while Ar­min van Bu­uren played the Ar­mada Stage.

Dead­mau5 and Ar­min van Bu­uren both per­formed on the South Stage on Satur­day night while Axwell & In­grosso and Nicky Romero were among those to play the North Stage.

Dutch DJ Tiësto head­lined the North Stage on Sun­day evening while Martin Gar­rix and Fat­boy Slim per­formed at the South Stage.

Pic­tures showed crowds en­joy­ing the nu­mer­ous acts, as well as an in­cred­i­ble aerial shot show­ing the camp­site and the fes­ti­val in full flow, with Run­corn, Widnes and Hal­ton’s two river cross­ings in the back­ground. ● Pic­ture: CHAR­LIE RAVEN ● ●
