STRAWBERRIES & CREEM 2016 - feat. NELLY, KANO, DAVID RODIGAN, KURUPT FM & many more!

Set in the heart of regal Cambridge, Strawberries & Creem is out to change perceptions of its traditionally 'refined' home town - bringing the underground sounds of UK streets and clubs to the city.

Last year's festival saw the 'King of Grime' Skepta shutdown Haggis Farm - the local estate where the festival is held - with support from hip hop pioneer Grandmaster Flash, General Levy, Stylo G and many more.

This year, the festival has doubled in size to 5,000 capacity for an all-day event on June 11th - with an impressive line-up of over 30 acts across 3 stages to mark just its third year running.

Alongside international rap superstar Nelly and UK grime sensation Kano, the bill includes reggae legend David Rodigan, garage crew Kurupt FM, electronic duo Snakehips, and grime artists D Double E and Big Narstie.

With four UK number 1 hits and 13 UK top tens, Nelly is one of American hip hop’s biggest crossover successes - and will headline the event with an exclusive UK festival performance.

Fresh from releasing his hotly anticipated new album ‘Made In The Manor’, Kano is one of the most respected grime MCs of all time - and will join this year’s Strawberries & Creem line-up as a second headliner.

With a vastly increased size and range of acts this year, alongside a wealth of great independent food & drink traders, Strawberries & Creem is looking to establish itself as one of the UK's leading independent music festivals - and has been selected by MOBO as one of the stand out events of 2016 for Hip Hop, Grime and Soul music lovers.

Don't miss out on one of the most exciting up-and-coming festivals in the UK right now.
