Stuart Mitchell Tribute At Creamfields With His Ashes Fired From A Confetti Cannon During A Tiësto Set.

A heartwarming story and a fitting tribute played out at Creamfields festival last week. The narrative unravelled in front of a 70,000 strong crowd as revellers flocked to the Liverpool showpiece.

A Tiesto fans ashes were fired out of a confetti cannon during the peak moment of his headline set.

The story was shared by Ryan and Liam Millen after purchasing tickets to the summer showcase and receiving a third envelope in the post from the original ticket owner. The third envelope contained the ashes of 30-year-old Stuart Mitchell and a handwritten note.

The note was from Stuart’s family. It explained that Stuart had taken his own life in July this year, with the ticket proceeds to help financially with the funeral. A few of Stuart’s ashes were also included with the request to scatter them at the festival.

According to an article in the Liverpool Echo, after carrying a banner in memory of Stuart around the festival throughout the weekend, the Millen’s managed to hang it with pride on the main stage before Creamfields organisers suggested firing the ashes out of a confetti cannon during DJ Tiësto’s headlining finale. Quite the tribute.

Stuart’s sister Laura contacted the Millen cousins to reveal that he had been a fan of Tiësto and that ‘Adagio For Strings’ had been played at his funeral.

Ryan Millen told the Echo: “Words cannot express our gratitude to his family for allowing us, to everyone who listened to his story and took pictures with the banner, and most importantly to the Creamfields production team for going above and beyond to accommodate us and go out of their way to allow us to honour his memory in such a fitting way.”

“Stuart Mitchell, we are humbled to have been allowed to help you complete your journey with us.”
