David Guetta, Leftfield, and Tiesto were among the acts delighting revellers at the Creamfields festival this weekend
David Guetta dubbed Creamfields "the biggest party on the planet" during his headline set this weekend.
The 42-year-old French DJ headlined the famous dance music event on Saturday (28.08.10) and wowed the 60,000-strong crowd at Daresbury Estate in Chesire, North West England, with a stunning set boosted by pyrotechnic displays, smoke machines and even an LED robot.
Speaking afterwards, he said: "Creamfields was the first festival that booked me so it's very special for me.
"The energy was amazing, there was so much love. I was really moved."
While the Frenchman had been the obvious choice on who to see headline on the first day of the dance music festival, revellers were divided on how to close their weekend on Sunday (29.08.10).
Spectacular sets from dance pioneers Leftfield in the Cream tent and a constantly packed out Swedish House Mafia tent - which saw people turned away as so many were trying to see Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso - meant there was plenty to drag festivallers away from the main stage, but those who stayed were rewarded by a stunning performance from Tiesto.
Other performers over the weekend included 'Acceptable in the 80s' hitmaker Calvin Harris - performing what was rumoured to be his last show with a live band - up-and-coming US starlet Uffie, and house producer Deadmau5.
