ARE YOU A BUDDING DJ?
EVER WANTED TO PLAY A SET AT STRAWBERRY FAIR?
Well, now’s your chance to make that a reality!


The Kings Head stage at Strawberry Fair are running a DJ competition with the prize being a one hour set on the Kings Head at Strawberry Fair itself on Saturday 3rd June 2017.


From humble beginnings, Strawberry Fair has grown to be the most popular free, entirely volunteer run, one day music & arts event in Cambridge (and probably across Europe!), attracting over 30,000 visitors throughout the day. On the first Saturday of June and now past our 40th year, residents and visitors have gathered together on Midsummer Common to celebrate their vibrant and creative city. The Fair is run entirely by volunteers (affectionately known as Strawberry Fairies) who give their energy, imagination and vision to present to their friends and neighbours in Cambridge a great free day out.
