Creamfields 2017

One of the world’s most famous and popular electronic music festivals, Creamfields provided the setting for Adlib to prove its technical credentials one again, supplying sound, lighting and rigging for two of the event’s main arenas – CF03 (Armada/Mega) and CF05 The Curve – and the all-important VIP and hospitality area, CF10.
