This weekend, I was given the opportunity to go up North and review Creamfields festival. This was my first time experiencing the festival, and in all honesty, I didn't really know what to expect from it. I've done festivals before in the South, but none like this one. We decided to just go on the Saturday, as this was the day that looked like it had the best line-up, and we were not disappointed by the sets that we saw. The day was amazing, and I will definitely be returning for another year.

I went to the festival with my cousins, and we were lucky enough to have really great weather, which meant that we could leave the wellies at home, something I was really happy about! Festivals are just so much more enjoyable when the sun is shining. On arrival, we picked up one of the booklets that tells you all of the acts who are performing throughout the day, and the times of their sets. Although it was majorly overpriced, this was something worth picking up in my opinion, as it meant we never had to worry about missing the good sets. The amount of people who came running over to us throughout the day to take a look at our booklet as they hadn't bought one was pretty amusing.

We spent most of the day at the two main stages, The North Stage and The South Stage, these were the stages that attracted the most people, and we found ourselves stood in the crowds with thousands of people, all screaming along to the lyrics in unison. It's an amazing feeling being in a crowd of that size, all united by the music you're sharing a love for. The highlights of the day for me were Martin Garix, Armin Van Burren and David Zowie, however, my absolute favourite of the day had to be Kygo. His set took place on the North Stage, just as the sun was setting, so the view that we had was amazing, and only made the spirits among the crowds higher. All of the acts just created such an incredible atmosphere, and this was only emphasised by the vibes the crowd gave off.

Food in the arena was pretty overpriced, but that's just something that's expected at festivals. I saw a stall that was making and selling chicken katsu, so the Wagamama lover inside me decided that's what I would eat - I soon forgave myself for spending £7 on it, it was amazing.

All in all, it was an incredible day. The acts, the people, the staging and the weather made it one of the best festivals I have ever attended. I will definitely be returning for Creamfields 2016!
