THE SOUTH WEST FOUR WEEKENDER HAS LANDED!

2010 marks a new chapter in the history of the UK’s premier inner city dance festival. Having brought alive London’s favorite field Clapham Common for six consecutive years, we are delighted to present the first ever South West Four Weekender!

With the world’s biggest DJs, electronic live acts and leading dance labels hosting our arenas, South West Four returns bigger and better than ever before. Falling on the Bank Holiday Weekend of Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th August, SW4 presents an unforgettable gathering featuring the capitals most discerning disciples of dance.

“Following six sensational sell-out years and phenomenal demand from the SW4-loving public, it was only natural that South West Four would evolve into a two day spectacular” says SW4 director Danny Newman. “This is the dawn of a new era for SW4 and with everyone off work on Monday we hope you can join us and see out the summer in style!”

Furthermore with more people than ever expected to experience SW4, we have teamed up with the best hotels in the area to offer you rooms at unbeatable rates! Check out the accommodation section of the SW4 website to receive a 20% discount when you quote SW4 on booking!

AND YOUR SW4 HEADLINERS ARE…

SATURDAY

ARMIN VAN BUUREN

[ONLY LONDON APPEARANCE OF 2010]

As the world’s undisputed no.1 DJ it’s a great honor to announce that Armin van Buuren has chosen South West Four for his only London gig of 2010. Armin follows in the footsteps of Paul van Dyk, Carl Cox, Sasha and John Digweed by headlining South West Four for the very first time.

Not only has Armin officially been voted the most popular DJ on the planet for the past three years, A State Of Trance continues to set the standard as the world’s most popular radio show. It now appears on a remarkable forty worldwide FM stations and attracts more than thirty million listeners a week. His record label Armada Music is now one of the premier labels in dance music, whilst Armin’s remixes of The Killers and BT sell by the lorry load. This is all achieved whilst Armin tours the four corners of the globe headlining the world’s leading nightclubs and festivals, holding down an epic weekly summer residency at Amnesia Ibiza and regularly playing ‘Armin Only’ gigs to over 10,000 fans. Currently working on a new album which will be showcased at SW4, this will be the first time he has headlined a festival in the UK. A true landmark gig for Armin, this will be a guaranteed pilgrimage for any trance lover.

SUNDAY

FATBOY SLIM

[ONLY LONDON APPEARANCE OF 2010]

With SW4 extending across two unforgettable days in 2010, we needed an act that had been there, seen it and done it all to headline the Sunday night. To use one of dance music’s most loved cliché’s we needed an act who needs no introduction. And for us there was only one contender. That man is Fatboy Slim.

As one of the most consistent songwriters of the modern era, not to mention one of the very best remixers in the business and one of the most popular DJs of all time, Fatboy Slim is the big man for the big occasion. From DJing infront of 250,000 people on Brighton Beach and at the Rio Carnival, through to headlining the world’s leading festivals and selling out concert venues the world over, Fatboy Slim’s DJ sets are the stuff of legend. With an astounding ability to connect with thousands of people in one instant, Fatboy Slim is the ultimate performer that we are truly privileged to welcome to SW4 for his only London appearance of 2010.

THE STUFF OF LEGEND… FATBOY SLIM IN ACTION!!
