The Main Stage has Canadian singer-songwriter PartyNextDoor bringing his hip-hop-inspired contemporary R&B to the UK for the first time in over 3 years, the legendary Sean Paul, Manchester MC and self-proclaimed ‘King of the North’ Bugzy Malone, the youngest Grammy winner in Jamaica's Koffee, hit-making rapper Abra Cadabra, chart-topping drill artist DigDat, BBC Soundpoll nominee Pa Salieu, Tottenham songbird Miraa May, DJ Tiffany Calver, Kenny Allstar & Friends, Da Beatfreakz, DJ Cuppy, and Rampage Sound.

Alongside its music offering, the festival aims to champion the cream of the crop in youth culture – from football and gaming; to entertainers, podcast and comedy; to talks focussing on the biggest issues and topics in the UK scene and across current affairs, washed down with delicious food and drink to keep festival goers dancing.
The festival’s co-founder Chris Jammer said: “It has always been our aim to establish Strawberries & Creem as a major brand representing British youth culture – not just the music, but for the whole scene. It’s been an incredibly tough year for everyone, but in many ways the disappointment of 2020 gave us time to re-energise, restructure and refocus our attention on building an experience that truly represents young people – in all of their diversity and creativity. With the support of Senbla and Sony Music’s backing (becoming their first UK green-field festival), we have scaled up to two days on a brand-new site – with a much bigger line-up, new stages and partnerships – allowing the festival to bounce right back into life. We’re incredibly excited for what S&C 2021 holds in store, and we can’t wait to share it all with you!”
Tickets for 2021 will go on sale at 10am on Friday 18th December.
Tickets are priced as follows:-
'Double Creem' adult weekend: from £79.50 (includes return shuttle bus).
'Single Creem' adult day: from £44.50
As part of their expansion, Strawberries & Creem have revealed the historic Childerley Orchard (Childerley, Cambridge) as the festival’s fresh new home for 2021 and beyond. Just a few minutes outside of the city centre and close to Cambridge North train station, Childerley is nestled in the rolling countryside with picturesque ponds and lush lawns – an ideal mix of beautifully secluded, but easily accessible.
