The sixth in a new season of benefit gigs for next years Scarecrow Corner at Strawberry Fair on Saturday 2nd June, 2018 and will mark the 21st anniversary of the area!

We welcome Johnny Cage and the Voodoogroove back to Cambridge having headlined the Scarecrow Corner stage in 2016 and played at Boomtown Fayre, Secret Garden and a host of other festivals since.
Hailing from the bayou's of Cardiff, this gargantuan Rock & Roll Juggernaught forged it's magic in the blood of madness with fire & rattlin' bone passion & the sweet sweat of sacrifice to the burning beast of electric Boogie, Punk fueled Cubana Soul, Rockabilly, Swamp Funk, Garage Blues & the essence of the roots of the rebel rouser. The Voodoogroove, driven by a dog headed whiskey spirited determination that could make the dead dance, take the stage like an electrified rhino stampede wrapped in the loins of a 50ft Go-Go dancer about to give birth to Rock & Roll itself. They live & die on the note of the moment in the almighty bid to make an audience lose it's mind completely, forgetting past, forsaking future & erupting in the all consuming now. Now for one. Now for all. Now forever.

Balothizer are an Electric Power Trio formed on the streets of Haringey, North London. Having been active in the Cretan Folk scene for years, the concept of this project was to bring the traditional music and poetry of Crete and breathe into it a modern and powerful heaviness, creating an edgy and ethereal new sound……. Cretan Punk. Over the last couple of years, Balothizer have embarked on a series of high-powered shows, tours and festival dates across Europe, delivering their unique sound with an energy and ferociousness that has built them a strong and loyal following — a following who together with the band came up with the tagline that now defines this unique and powerful genre of music……
Cretan Music from Hell

Hubcap are a Northampton based rock blues psychedelic two piece band. With vampin electric slide and rockin guitar riffs and Dans 'Mitchel/Bonham' influences, they're definitely not a duo to miss…

Spoken word bardcore. Justin Thyme has been Raising The Arwen in Northampton and many other places for many years — a true rock n roll raconteur…
