Strawberries & Creem returns with arguably its most groundbreaking line up yet striking an impressive balance of international titans and the UK’s brightest.

From June 17 to June 19, the 3-day-weekender event also promises to promote “female talent with highly-deserved headliner slots and championing women across the festival” – 60% of performers will be female.

Festival Co-Founder and booker, Preye Crooks said: “This year, as we scale up to a full three days, we wanted to ensure our musical offering matched that level of ambition – as well as reflecting our incredibly diverse crowd. We have gone further than ever before to bring exceptional artists together, showing Strawberries & Creem to be a major player on the weekend festival scene,”

“As a team, we also wanted to shine a light on some amazing genres and artists that aren’t always celebrated in full at other festivals. We hope we have curated a truly representative and exciting lineup, one that offers an unrivalled experience to our festival goers – covering everything from D&B and dance music, to reggae and R&B.”
