8th BIRTHDAY CREAM
the success of Creamfields, James Barton and his team are set to celebrate being
8 years old! All that dancing amidst 45,000 people at a Liverpool airport for
the last two Summers has made him look a little older than 8 we admit, but 8 it
is this year!
sold socks on a market stall in Liverpool 10 years ago and like the rest of us
got bitten by this new wave of music that was seeping up from the underground -
strange electronic beats that made us dance and warehouses where scruffy people
in hooded tops went to SERIOUSLY sweat. Always an entrepeneur from his days of
selling socks to his days of being head of the biggest club brand in the world,
James saw a window of opportunity and decided to organise a few of those parties
for himself. Viola Cream was born and 8 years on James can feel proud to lick
is going from strength to strength, not only has Nation in Liverpool
been selling out every Saturday night for the last eight years, but DJ's
such as Paul Oakenfold and Seb Fontaine have gone on to become global
superstars following their long term residencies on Cream's hallowed
decks. Cream is now a Global enterprise, the latest country to swoon in
Cream's wake is Buenos Aires who like Liverpool invited Cream to
organise their Millennium festivities last year and next year plan to
hold their own Creamfields festival.

would be possible without the dedication and loyalty of Cream's fans who week
in, week out make their way to Cream to celebrate the weekend.
will be celebrating their 8th birthday with one of the strongest line-ups you'll
see in a club this year. On October the 13th they'll be joining with their
friends Bugged Out to bring you some of Friday's favourites for the musical
connoisseurs and on the 14th the party is their very own where all
the Saturday residents will be returning to blow the roof right off!
Friday is Bugged Out!

celebrations don't end there, Cream will also be holding an event at The Point
in Dublin on 28th Oct for their fans across the water - this isn't an official
birthday celebration, but I think with a line up like this you'll agree -
"It'll more than do!"
