SW4 announce full Sunday Main Stage lineup for 2017



Back in London for the first time in three years, Sunday 27th August will witness the return of Deadmau5to London at SW4. The initial announcement of this industry leader created an unbelievable buzz across London’s dance music community and every day we get closer, the intrigue intensifies. In recent weeks, the Mau5 has revealed blue prints of the massive production that is set to make an appearance on the Common and is widely regarded as one of the most impressive set-ups in electronic music. Are you ready?

Consisted of two members of SW4 Saturday headliners Pendulum, Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen have put their touch of genius to their other hugely successful project; Knife Party. Since their inception in 2011, the domineering duo have been a mainstay on the top of huge festival line ups and have sold out the most prestigious venues across the globe, most notably at the 02 Academy Brixton. Their explosive and high-octane sound have made them favourites in all corners of the globe with fans eagerly anticipating the pair’s return wherever they go! We are absolutely thrilled to welcome one of the most influential acts in dance music to Clapham Common, for the 14th installment of South West Four.

A juggernaut of electronic music, Sub Focus’ constant output of top class productions and performances has meant that he well on his way to world domination! He first debuted his critically acclaimed live show a few years ago and it went onto dominate festival stages all across the globe. He is now back with version 2.0 and you can expect a LARGER, LOUDER and MORE COMPLETE version of this outstanding LIVE set up that cements Sub Focus on the map as one of the most in-demand artists on the planet today! His return to the festival will see him play on the main stage for the very first time, whilst his brand new album is set to take him to another level. We’re hugely excited to be a part of it!


Bakermat catapulted himself into the dance music five years ago and he hasn’t looked back since. The Dutch native is from a select breed of artists who have come to the forefront of electronic music in recent years who tap into the more melodic side of house music and have discovered huge success doing so! His recent visit to the capital witnessed two huge back-to-back sell out shows at Electric Brixton as he showcased his Circus party to 3500 revelers in south London! Sunday 27th August will see this hot shot land into the common and perform his LIVE show for the first ever time in London! With an ever growing fan base all across the globe, we are tipping this to be one of the performances of the weekend!

When Skrillex officially endorses you, you know you’re doing something right! The past 18 months have been an absolute whirlwind for American producer Jauz who has gone from producing in his bedroom in 2014 to selling out arena tours all across the States. A quick-fire XOYO sell out at the tail end of 2016 demonstrated that the appetite for this whizz kid is clearly rife and his bass-heavy sound has caught the attention of many. Jauz will be making his SW4 debut this summer and with him being tipped for the top, this is an artist you can’t afford to miss!

Parisian house giant Martin Solveig has become a stable-diet on festival main stages around the world and a go-to artist when it comes to getting the party started. Having honed his innate ability to sense the vibe being emitted from the crowd, Solveig never fails to manipulate the dance floor. With this in mind, it will come as no surprise to hear he’s held a five year residency at Ibiza super club Pacha and featured on the biggest lineups on the earth’s most illustrious stages at the world’s most prestigious festivals like Ultra Miami, Electric Daisy Carnival and Tomorrowland. We can’t wait to welcome Martin this summer for his debut appearance at SW4!

Paris is known for breeding the most popular and notable artists on the planet and Tchami is one of its finest. Having formed a close relationship with DJ Snake who took the young producer under his wing, his last visit to London saw a frenzy of fans pack out Electric Brixton for an exhilarating show. He made his SW4 debut last year on the main stage and played a stand-out set when the sun was going down. This has been etched in people’s memories and his return to the main stage will be nothing short of magical!
Lobster Boy records head honcho Redlight has become a firm favourite at SW4 HQ over recent years. He is part of a group of artists who burst onto the scene in rapid fashion around five years ago and he has kept it consistent since then. The Bristol native has become hot property in Europe with his vast knowledge of the genre allowing him to stand a cut above the rest. Redlight will make his debut on the SW4 main stage and add another milestone to his fledging career!

Australian sensation What So Not is a god amongst men when it comes dance music in the south hemisphere. Worshipped by millions of fans, his soulful and instrumental driven tracks have taken him to the next level. Following in the footsteps of industry leaders such as FLUME, What So Not is in the handful of producers who are on the top of their game. The summer of 2017 will see him make his debut and perform on our huge main stage for the very first time!

Example’s intrinsic lyrical excellence and wonderful ability to seamlessly fuse together a plethora of high-octane genres has led to him becoming a one of the most popular artists in the world. So much so that we had him headline our 10th anniversary in 2013 as he absolutely tore the common to pieces with an incredible performance. Since that jaw-dropping performance, he has been the one of the main talking points within the dance music community with his latest album capturing the imagination of many! Joining him will be DJ Wire who has accompanied Example all around the world with notable shows at Ibiza’s world famous Amnesia! We are hugely excited to welcome Example back to SW4 for what will be a performance to remember!

This Sunday main stage announcement is set to create a frenzy amongst the SW4 faithful. With tickets for the second day of SW4 increasing in price on Monday 3rd April at midday, if you plan to attend the Sunday, we would highly recommend purchasing your tickets imminently!

Faithless headline SW4 2015 with Eric Prydz and more!

And with two main stages set to welcome your favourite headline DJs and live electronic acts, our lineup will hit the three figure mark for the first time, as we welcome over one hundred artists to the Capital.
The message here is simple; Twelve years in and South West Four continues to push the envelope. As we move into a new era in the development of the event we’re in no mood to hold back. SW4 2015 will be our most ambitious instalment to date and look to top last year’s weekend which was widely regarded as our best ever, resulting in us winning the coveted 'Best British Festival' award at the DJ Magazine awards. This is South West Four 2015…
"This summer we play South London's SW4, the only festival date in the city where it all began for us. It'll be a very special homecoming show, see you there!" Sister Bliss
It’s not every day that one of the world’s greatest electronic live acts decides to reunite in celebration of their 20th Anniversary. However the recent news that the legendary Faithless will come together one more time has sent shockwaves through the music industry and been met with a rapturous response. The fact that this will take place at South West Four makes this, without question, the most anticipated booking in our history. Thousands of fans from all over the world will make the pilgrimage to Clapham Common to witness this exclusive homecoming performance, set to be one of the highlights of the British summer. With an unparalleled back catalogue spread across seven albums (two of which went #1), numerous top 10 singles such as ‘Insomnia’, ‘God is a DJ’ and ‘We Come One’, as well as over fifteen million records sold worldwide, it’s no wonder why Faithless are considered dance music royalty. With a headline slot at South West Four on Saturday 29th August beckoning, Faithless are back to prove precisely why. Special ain’t the word…


Many artists have become synonymous with South West Four over the years. However one act more than any other stands tall as ‘Mr SW4’. That man is Eric Prydz. From naming one of his finest productions after the festival, to delivering performances that are consistently regarded amongst the weekend’s greatest highlights, Eric is the SW4 favourite. Returning this August for the sixth time in seven years, his main stage set alongside Faithless will again illustrate his pedigree, as will his new artist album which is set to take the airwaves by storm this summer. We cannot wait…
As one of the most influential and ground breaking DJs of all time, Luciano makes his long awaited SW4 debut this summer. A storming 2014 witnessed the Swiss-Chilean maestro return to his brilliant best with an outstanding residency at Amnesia, resulting in him being crowned ‘Best Tech House DJ’ at the Ibiza DJ Awards. The past twelve months has also seen Luciano return to the studio to produce the 100th release on his seminal Cadenza Records, whilst this year has started just as frantically. Representing his first London performance in over two years, Luciano’s inaugural SW4 appearance promises to be one of the standout highlights of the entire weekend.
Dubfire is another long term favourite amongst the SW4 faithful who has chosen our event for the London debut of his new live show titled dubfire: live HYBRID. In what is his most ambitious achievement to date, the techno titan weaves together 2D and 3D animation with live audio and lighting, resulting in show that will blow the minds of all those in attendance.
As one of the biggest rising stars of the past year, Bakermat debuts at SW4 2015 in a UK festival exclusive. Having hosted his own stage at Tomorrowland over the past two years and headlined Brixton Academy last September, Bakermat will bring his melodic take on house music and preview tracks from his new album 'Another Man.'
Fritz Kalkbrenner also brings his beautifully crafted sound to SW4 in a UK festival exclusive. Having sold out his upcoming Electric Brixton event a month in advance, Fritz has been busy touring Europe in support of his superb third studio album ‘Ways Over Water.’ His blend of heart-warming harmonies and soulful beats will work beautifully on our hallowed turf, as Fritz’s sound simmers in the sunshine.
Having been on our radar for several years now, we are delighted to welcome the killer grooves of Hot Since 82 to SW4 for the first time. With a career trajectory that has been nothing short of incredible during that time including four ‘Essential New Tunes’, two ‘Essential Mixes’ and a Mixmag cover, he shows no signs of slowing down. SW4 will be his biggest London show to date. Do not miss it.
Recent years has seen Saved Records label boss Nic Fanciulli consolidate his position as one of the UK’s finest DJs, whilst his imprint celebrated its 100th release in 2014. With a hugely successful residency alongside Joris Voorn taking Ibiza by storm last summer, Nic will bring the sound of the White Isle to Clapham Common and make SW4 2015 his stand-out performance of the year.
Hot on the heels of his UK #1 track ‘I Wanna Feel’, SecondCity made his SW4 debut last summer. We have been working hard to bring him back ever since. 2015 has seen SecondCity establish himself further as one of the most talked about newcomers in electronic music. Be sure to keep an eye on this one as he’ll be even hotter property come August…
A national icon and cultural phenomenon in South Africa, Black Coffee takes time out from performing in stadiums in his home country for a rare UK performance. Make sure you check out Black Coffee’s unique afro-house sound on the Common and see for yourself why the meteoric rise of this SW4 debutant is fully justified.
With an outstanding upcoming release schedule and a hugely successful quarterly residency at The Gallery at Ministry of Sound, now is the right time for Anjunabeat’s first label showcase at a London festival. The finest names from Above & Beyond’s owned and A&R'ed imprint will be showcased, as the labels fans make a welcome return to Clapham Common
