TAB EXCLUSIVE: First Strawberries & Creem headliner revealed
Kurupt FM, fast-rising garage crew and stars of the hit BBC Three mockumentary ‘People Just Do Nothing’, are announced as Strawberries & Creem’s first act, the Tab can exclusively reveal.
With only a few days left of week eight, Lent term is inexplicably already nearly over. But no fear – whilst exams loom, so does May Week at the end the tunnel, as well as Strawberries & Creem festival.
Following on from our interview with the festival’s co-founder, Chris Jammer last week, we can now reveal its first headliner: the one, the only Kurupt FM. In a way they are an unlikely festival act – they are essentially a spoof garage crew, first finding fame in the sitcom ‘People Just Do Nothing’, which chronicles their inevitably hilarious attempts to dominate the West London pirate radio scene.
Yet in what is perhaps a testament to the great sense of humour of Britain’s garage-heads, their live performances, a mix of skits and no-nonsense old-skool bangers, have become just as notorious. Earning the respect of legends in the game like Stormzy, they have also had an unlikely hand in helping Craig David’s glorious comeback, when he destroyed the mic during their BBC Radio 1xtra Sixty Minutes Live set.
Get those gun-fingers ready – Brentford’s finest will raise the temperature on the 11th of June, whatever the weather.
