South West Four returns to London’s scenic Clapham Common this August, firmly established as one of the UK’s most important and influential electronic music festivals. After recently being awarded DJ Magazine’s coveted ‘Best British Festival’ at the Best of British Awards, this year’s offering will close what will be a truly monumental summer for the Capital.
For the first time in our nine year history, the Clapham carnage will cease at 10pm. That’s an extra hour to indulge in the scintillating sights and sounds of the UK’s premier inner city music event. So with an extra sixty minutes to play with, this year’s line-up will be our biggest ever, showcasing an array of prime international artists on a scale never before experienced at SW4. Inspirational talent synonymous with South West Four’s success, are joined by a host of DJ debuts and manic live acts. Furthermore with improved sound levels, a freeze on 2011 ticket prices and numerous other enhancements, SW4 2012 will bring to the English summer an even greater festival experience.
If our day one lineup wasn’t enough to pummel Clapham Common into submission, then we’re sure our day two acts will do just the trick. In a real coup for SW4, Triple Grammy Award winner Skrillex headlines in a performance guaranteed to go down as one of the greatest in SW4 history. Skream & Benga; two pioneers synonymous with quality bass music will be joined by DJ Fresh, who plays an exclusive DJ set. Hip hop royalty will be on show as the truly legendary Public Enemy arrive at Clapham Common to play a UK festival exclusive show as part of their 25th Anniversary World Tour. Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello makes his SW4 debut this year, in his final UK festival performance of 2012, whilst Mad Decent’s Diplo and the dynamic Italian duo Crookers can both be expected to put in scintillating performances. Finally Foreign Beggars and Rudimental are sure to be hits at SW4 too.
Together’s arena at SW4 2011 was arguably the most energetic, whilst last November’s sell out Together Winter Music Festival at Alexandra Palace and upcoming residency at Amnesia Ibiza have confirmed the night as a dominant force. This time round Together welcomes the ‘expect the unexpected’ mayhem of 2ManyDJs, the DJ manifestation of sensational production duo Soulwax. Add to that one of the greatest DJs and producers of our generation, Eric Prydz; raw and in the flesh. Clapham debauchery can be expected from the riotous duo that is Simian Mobile Disco, whilst a defining festival experience will no doubt be delivered by Erol Alkan. One of the most important acts of the past 20 years, Curtis Alan Jones aka Green Velvet, also features on the Together stage with Brodinski & Gesaffelstein, Fehrplay and Jeremy Olander.
This summer the world’s undisputed ambassador for electronic dance music returns to South West Four, this time hosting his very own arena. That’s right, SW4 goes ‘All Gone Pete Tong’! His arena at SW4 represents the biggest All Gone party to date with Pete joined by the atmospheric sound and transcendental synths of Sasha as he showcases his mesmerising connection with the dancefloor. The enigmatic trio of Seth Troxler, Maya Jane Coles and Dyed Soundorom, all make their SW4 debuts this year, along with Eats Everything, Jaymo & Andy George and Connected’s Jesse James and Johnny Bloomfield.
Last but not least the biting sounds of Andy C and ‘RAM Records’, revered amongst drum and bass connoisseurs. This year is the seminal label’s 20th Anniversary with the celebrations launching on Clapham Common. Andy C headlines, bringing with him his audio / visual ‘Alive’ arc, with further drum and bass coming courtesy of Friction, Delta Heavy and Loadstar. Flux Pavilion, Jack Beats, Borgore, Dillon Francis and Doctor P also bring the bass, making this arena a real SW4 treat.
