UK - Acorn Event Structures has been awarded the prestigious contract to provide the complete staging package for the UK's No.1 electronic music festival - Creamfields. Held on the August back holiday, Creamfields is now considered the premier electronic music festival in the UK and attracts an audience of 70,000 to its Daresbury Estate venue.

Acorn will supply two 60m wide outdoor stage roofs using their Space Roof product combined with steel truss video wings to support 730sq.m of LED screen. Each main stage will be supplied complete with a newly designed cowshed arrangement, front-of-house structures and delay towers. In addition to the main stages, Acorn will also provide over 900sq.m of standalone stage platforms and wheelchair user platforms across 8 indoor arenas at the festival using its modular Layher decking system.

Ian Greenway, director of production company LarMac LIVE, said: "We were really impressed with the flexibility that Space Roof offered us in being able to deliver a really slick visual appearance for our audience. From the initial conversation, Acorn have been extremely accommodating and their test build of the stage was a real bonus for myself and the other Creamfields stakeholders to see, touch and feel the roof in advance of being on site".

Andy Nutter, managing director of Acorn Event Structures commented: "We're delighted to have been chosen to support Creamfields and are really looking forward to working with Ian and the Cream team at this iconic event. Since we introduced Space Roof to the UK marketplace, its popularity has increased dramatically as promoters and production companies are realising not only its impressive performance capability but also the ease with which its visual appearance can be altered."
