Reviews of Strawberries & Creem Festival
Established in 2014 in the heart of refined and regal Cambridge, Strawberries & Creem is moving graciously into its third year. In 2016, and for the first time ever, they are taking over a summer’s Saturday.
Saturday 11th June to be exact.
Some may think that Cambridge is simply a city steeped in academic history. That it’s a city dominated by the magnificent University colleges, made only for sunny afternoons lazily punting along the tranquil setting of the River Cam. A Strawberries & Creem veteran will know that this is not the case.
Cambridge is home to a music festival. That festival is Strawberries & Creem.
Last June, this festival brought Skepta to Cambridge in an event that shook the foundations that the city was built on. They brought Skepta, the King of Grime, to a field in little old Cambridge.
…and it’s never going to be the same again.
On the hottest day of the year in 2015, with the Red Stripe flowing, General Levy showed Cambridge why he is the ‘Incredible’ General, Grandmaster Flash soaked revellers in old school hip hop and Skepta & company paved the way for a new generation in Cambridge and beyond.
Last year the festival went to a whole new level, and this year is seems to be even bigger, and even better.
The festival organisers say the city is on a new path, veering away from books and gowns, and honing its focus on Grime, Hip-Hop, Disco – and whatever gets the people moving.
With a smattering of Strawberries and a dash of Creem for good measure.
