Among the charismatic confines of Clapham, anticipation is mounting for the bank holiday dance extravaganza that is South West Four. Inviting you South of the river, Clapham Common will host the ninth instalment of SW4 on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th August. With acts such as drum & bass artisans Chase & Status, clubland veteran Benny Bennasi and American electronic house sensations Skrillex and Diplo, dance music will grab hold and shake South London for two days.
Nominated for Best Dance Festival in the UK Festival Awards, SW4 will welcome the world’s greatest DJs and live electronic acts to perform to thousands of fans, and we’re hopeful it will be under a blue, sunny sky.
On the Saturday, Chase & Status will headline live, as well as a UK Festival exclusive from Carl Cox and a world exclusive from very special guests Let The Music Play. Taking to the DJ Magazine arena, Roger Sanchez will play a world exclusive, as well as performances from Paul Van Dyk and Erick Morillo.
Sunday will see triple Grammy Award winner Skrillez take the audience in an exclusive London festival performance, scheduled to close the show with a bang. The main stage will also play host to Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello with his final UK festival performance of 2012, and hip hop royalty Public Enemy will play as part of their 25th Anniversary World Tour. New stars Rudimental will entertain audiences as well as one of the greatest DJs and producers of our generation; Eric Prydz. Pete Tong will also present Its All Gone Pete Tong with DJ’s Seth Troxler and Maya Jane Coles.
So shun Ibiza and head to SW4 for your bank holiday weekend as Clapham Common turns into London’s biggest dance floor.
