We are thrilled to reveal SW4 favourite Eric Prydz will be our next headliner for Saturday 26th August. Respected by his peers, loved by millions of fans, the Swede has become an icon to many worldwide. From masterpieces like OPUS to sell out arena shows, everything he touches turns to gold. Recent months have seen him sell out the 15,000 capacity Steelyard event in Victoria Park in less than 48 hours, headline festivals around the world and work on his hugely anticipated PRYDA 2017 album. With brand-new material set to come out ahead of the summer, we can’t wait to welcome this undisputed master back to his traditional hunting ground!
MK, MAYA JANE COLES VS HEIDI, PATRICK TOPPING, SAM FELDT (LIVE) ALSO ADDED
Regarded as one of the most popular dance music artists of the last two decades, there isn’t a crowd that MK can’t get pumping. From classics such as ‘Burning’ to modern day bangers like ‘My Head is a Jungle’, MK is one of the very best producers in the scene. Whether it’s a small club or a main stage, Marc Kinchen always delivers and it will be no different at SW4 2017.
Maya Jane Coles and Heidi are the two leading ladies of dance music. Maya has been in the forefront of underground house and techno for nearly a decade now, with her deep and mesmerizing sound hypnotizing audiences wherever she goes. Heidi on the other hand has enjoyed one of the most successful years of her career to date, capped by an outstanding twelve-week residency at XOYO. Set to be one of the most exciting back-to-backs this summer, we can’t wait to welcome these two queens of electronic music to battle it out.
Recently voted at #13 in Resident Advisor’s DJ poll, Patrick Topping has had a phenomenal year championing his tech-house sound. Fast becoming one of the key players in that scene, Patrick has been touring relentlessly and become a regular at one of the most popular parties in the world, Elrow! The 27-year old is on a roll and won’t be stopping until he reaches the very top. We are delighted to have him on board again as he’s sure to tear the roof off come Bank Holiday Saturday!
23-year old Sam Feldt has quickly become one of the most accomplished house artists in a very short space of time. Considered to be the golden child of the ever-popular Spinnin’ Records, Sam Feldt is a production machine. Having also created his ‘HeartFeldt & Friends’ & ‘Heartfeldt podcasts’, he definitely isn’t one to keep his fans waiting. His regular output of music and gigs means he’s one of the hardest working artists out there. We can’t wait for him to bring his high-energy LIVE show to the capital for the very first time on Saturday 26th August.
SW4 SATURDAY LINEUP SO FAR… PENDULUM (LIVE) ERIC PRYDZ SIGMA (LIVE) plus in alphabetical order… DUKE DUMONT · HANNAH WANTS · MK MAYA JANE COLES VS HEIDI · MISTAJAM PATRICK TOPPING · SAM FELDT LIVE SONNY FODERA VS LOW STEPPA many more to be announced across five stages!
France’s biggest electronic music festival Electrobeach is set to have worldwide fans gravitating to it’s latest edition, as it prepares to return to the stunning Port-Barcarès for its fourth official anniversary this July. In a line-up packing enough weight to make galactic waves, a celestial cast of David Guetta, Tiësto, Martin Garrix, Eric Prydz, Axwell / Ingrosso, Hardwell, Martin Solveig and many more are amongst confirmed names for 2016 – with the festival announcing the addition of a brand new techno-focused stage for the very first time.
Constituting a solar system of acts big enough to have orbits of their own,Electrobeach eclipses all for this year’s three-day spectacular. French supernova David Guetta acts as captain, with a whole array of groundbreaking and ground-shaking artists set to join him. ‘Opus’ hitmaker Eric Prydz will make an appearance alongside Dutch superstar Martin Garrix, with the Tiësto returning in triumph as do Martin Solveig and Axwell / Ingrosso. The festival even welcomes red carpet rebel Ruby Rose to it’s A-list clique, as well as Moombahton master Dillon Francis, Nile Rodger’s and Rihanna collaboratorNicky Romero and IDMA’s number 1 Global DJ Hardwell.
Upholding the French Tricolour and all the passion of its dance community, the ‘Treasured Soul’ of Michael Calfan is confirmed, as well as one of Forbes’ ’30 Under 30’s DJ Snake. This year’s Beach Stage will be purely focused on the countries most exciting exports – welcoming the likes of Norman Doray andGregory Klosman – and sees Electrobeach putting French DJ’s and nightclub residents at its front and centre throughout the weekend. Paris’ Fun Radio are also on the scene with their specialist selectors, set to air a ‘le son dancefloor’ out of studio and under the sun; likewise, Flaix FM crash the party from Catalan to flex their own respected residents. In a festival first, Electrobeach’s patriotism will be pushed even further with a prized demonstration from thePatrouille de France – a flyover of famous flair that will fill cloudless skies in what’s set to be a stunning weekend highlight.
Proving themselves attuned to the meteoric rise of techno, Electrobeach’s next and last trick for 2016 is to call on the cut of crews in Cocoon, Luciano & Friends, and a yet to be announced third force. With Cocoon’s very own SvenVäth on board, the festival packs no punches with the addition of dance legendLuciano. Label residents Marcus Fix and Cesar Merveille will represent each brand respectively, making Electrobeach’s latest expansion both equally authentic as it is exciting.
With Electrobeach 2016 continuing to captivate crowds as it celebrates every eccentricity of the electronic music scene, its position in the festival calendar shines brightly. For those looking for a picture perfect setting and pitch perfect sound, its three-day offering is an unmissable one.
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.

This is South West Four 2015…
YOUR SW4 2014 SATURDAY HEADLINER IS…
[EXCLUSIVE HOMECOMING PERFORMANCE]
"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…
ERIC PRYDZ, LUCIANO, DUBFIRE: LIVE HYBRID, BAKERMAT, FRITZ KALKBRENNER + MORE ALSO ANNOUNCED
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
