Curated by the youngest festival team in the UK with an average age of just 24, Strawberries & Creem have announced details of their fifth anniversary edition which will take place on Saturday 16th June.
Returning to the majestic setting of Cambridge, the independent festival continues to shake off the town’s reputation of being purely an academic hub with another diverse line-up that sees Auto-Tune King T-Pain at the helm, plus acts across rap, grime, garage and house such as Not3s, Kojo Funds, David Rodigan, Heidi, Shy FX and more.
In previous year’s the event has hosted the likes of Skepta, J Hus, Wiley and Kano, paying homage to the very best in UK talent. The bill also maintains a signature throwback noughties element – which has seen performances from Shaggy and Wiley in past editions – with headliner T-Pain, who brings a dose of nostalgia to Cambridge with his classic party starter anthems “Buy U A Drank” and “I’m Sprung”.
Breakthrough artists Not3s and Kojo Funds will make their Strawberries & Creem debuts this year, while grime pioneer Ghetts, rising MC Octavian, and Kaizen co-founder Madam X will also be present, plus London collective House of Pharaohs. Legendary reggae selector David Rodigan will return to Haggis Farm having performed back in 2016, with jungle and drum & bass innovator Shy FX also on the bill, fresh from his hugely popular culture event series.
