“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,” Strawberries & Creem co-founder Preye Crooks said in a statement about this year’s festival, the line-up poster for which you can see below.

“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 line-up, one that offers an unrivalled experience to our festival goers – covering everything from D&B and dance music, to reggae and R&B.”

Tickets for Strawberries & Creem 2022 will initially be available in a pre-sale from 10am on Monday (February 21), which requires a sign-up on the festival’s website. General sale will then begin at 10am on Tuesday (February 22).
