Stefflon Don, Ms Dynamite and Mahalia are confirmed to headline the up-and-coming independent festival on Saturday June 15.

The one day event, curated by a team of young creative’s with an average age of just 25, aims to stay true to its ethos of ‘celebrate heritage, champion future’ with a diverse bill for 2019.

‘Beautiful Girls’ hitmaker Sean Kingston will also 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.

Established in 2014 in the majestic setting of Cambridge, Strawberries & Creem has become renowned for its authentic and feel-good line-ups that have seen a wealth of respected acts perform in recent years - counting Skepta, Wiley and Kano to name a few.
