Lineup announced for this year's Strawberries & Creem festival in Cambridge
Stefflon Don, Ms Dynamite, and Mahalia are confirmed to headline the fifth edition of the annual festival, which will take place at Haggis Farm, Cambridge on Saturday, June 15.
Curated by a young team with an average age of just 25, the one-day event stays true to its ethos of "celebrate heritage, champion future" with a diverse bill for 2019.
Bringing a carnival atmosphere to Cambridge, Beautiful Girls hitmaker Sean Kingston will headline, alongside special guest Kevin Lyttle whose debut single, Turn Me On, went on to become a club classic and one of Dancehall’s best-loved anthems.
Fresh talent is represented in BBC Sound of 2019 nominee Mahalia, 079ME artist B Young, plus West London group WSTRN.
Dancehall collective The Heatwave will bring their formidable Hot Wuk party, while a strong UK garage contingent sees Artful Dodger, Heartless Crew, Shola Ama, and Sweet Female Attitude confirmed.
Originally created as an end-of-year celebration for the students of Cambridge, five years on and the festival has successfully provided the city with an exciting, musically-diverse identity that continues to expand.
From just 1,000 guests in its first year to now over 12,000, Strawberries & Creem stands tall as one of the UK’s fastest growing events.
It’s also become renowned for attracting a slew of surprise guests, with 2018 counting more than 20 unannounced artists who performed on the day.
Now a firm fixture in the summer festival calendar, tickets for Strawberries & Creem start at £45 and are available to buy from the festival website now.
