2010 was a defining year for South West Four. For the first time, we took over Clapham Common for a whole weekend. The likes of Fatboy Slim, Armin Van Buuren, Carl Cox, Boys Noize, Salt N Pepa and Erick Morillo cemented SW4 as the UK’s premier inner-city festival. A prime showcase of the best dance talent, we return in 2011 literally bigger, better and louder! It’s the Bank Holiday date of Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th August, where the clubbing fraternity will once again congregate al fresco.
On day one of this year’s SW4 we welcome the undisputed kings of electronic music Underworld in a 2011 London Exclusive. Fresh from headlining Ultra, Sonar and Exit this summer, we’re delighted to finally secured their services for a huge homecoming performance. Having graced the green grass of Clapham Common on six consecutive occasions, with his Bedrock arena one of the highlights of last year, John Digweed is back. Following his sell out Brixton Academy show back in October and an intimate Bedrock event at London’s Arcadia over Easter, expect John to end the summer in style. Laidback Luke made his very successful debut at last year’s South West Four with a performance that had the Common rocking under the August sun. Continuing to produce some of the biggest tracks to hit our airwaves, not to mention selling out clubs and events the world over, we’re delight to welcome Luke back to SW4. 2011 represents 20 years of Pete Tong hosting his BBC Radio 1 show. He has a massive summer ahead with many huge performances celebrating this milestone and a much anticipated return to Pacha Ibiza for an all new residency. Having rocked the main stage in 2010 we’re delighted to welcome Pete back to his home town for another memorable appearance. James Zabiela’s last SW4 performance came back in 2009. After having two years away from the Common it was time to welcome the technical whiz kid back. A hugely popular figure and a a stellar addition to any line-up, we’re very excited about what to expect. One of the world’s great DJs Argentina’s Hernan Cattaneo debuts at SW4 in 2011. A name synonymous with deep, tribal and progressive house, we’re delighted to be able to add him to Saturday’s line-up alongside Demi and Omid 16B aka SOS.
Sunday’s main stage line-up focuses on the more alternative side of the dance music spectrum. The musical juggernaut that is Pendulum will close this year’s South West Four with their only London show of the year. Having fused ideas from a plethora of musical genres, we’re delighted to welcome them to the Common for a full live performance that will certainly get the rave juices flowing. In yet another London festival exclusive, Magnetic Man will act as main support. One of the most talked about electronic acts of the past two years, all eyes are on dubstep’s most loved trio. The first lady of BBC Radio 1, Annie Mac, has this year continued to take her ‘Annie Mac presents’ tour across the world with monstrous parties that have turned many a head. Add to that her hugely successful weekly radio show and you’re looking at one of the most talked about DJs of our time. As the leader of the Digital Soundboy System, Shy FX leads a tight-knit team of like-minded Soundboy soldiers. This includes the prestigious Breakage, one of the world’s premier female DJs B.Traits with MC Donaeo, DJ Marky’s MC of choice Stamina and one of the UK’s most exciting and dynamic vocal talents, Youngman. Adding more live music to the Sunday Main Stage lineup, London’s grime sensation Wretch 32 has recently shot to fame after the release of his debut smash hit ‘Traktor’. Having toured the UK extensively this year to rave reviews, we’re delighted to add him to the SW4 line-up. It’s not often you see a life sized dinosaur play electro but this is what can be expected from Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. Beginning her music career as a DJ in London just two years ago, Yasmin has already founded her own successful club night, spun around the world for N.E.R.D., Taio Cruz and Eve and played storming sets at Glastonbury and Ibiza Rocks. Established as a world-class spinner, Yasmin is now ready to make her mark as a fully-fledged artist, singer and songwriter in her own right. Her next stop? SW4.
Without doubt the biggest and best lineup we have ever put together at SW4, there is simply no better way to end the summer…
