The Definitive SW4 After Parties Guide

Inner city festivals have one clear advantage over most other ‘traditional’ festivals in that there are usually dozens of after parties taking place at surrounding clubs and bars to choose from. Keeping you partying well into the early hours and long after the festival music has finished South West Four Weekender has its fair share of after parties to prolong the Bank Holiday celebrations. Plain & Simple is on hand to let you know exactly who to see and where to go…

Kinky Malinki @ The White House

(29th August 2010 – 8pm – 4am.)

Just a short walk from SW4 itself is the Kinky Malinki After Party at The White    House. The infamous London clubbing brand Kinky Malinki, with a reputation of throwing the most memorable parties around, will host a selection of resident and guest DJ’s playing through ‘til 4am to end the very first SW4 Weekender in true stay-out-late style.

Plain & Simple’s very own Tom Chubb will be in the building to refresh and rejuvenate the most tired of festival-feet with a unique mix of the best up-front house music for your after-party pleasure.

Straight after Fatboy Slim and Salt ‘n’ Pepa where better to go than SW4’s closest designated after party at The White House where, alongside Tom, the resident Kinky DJ’s, Grant Richards, Blush, Dom Chevez, Jon Vamp and Liam D will be playing into the small hours of Monday morning.

“SW-MORE” / Wonderland After Parties @ Ministry of Sound

(28th & 29th August 8pm – 6am)

If you don’t plan on sleeping at all before the Monday morning sun rises then Ministry of Sound’s 6-am finisher, the apty titled ‘SW-MORE’ might be the perfect place for the hardcore to head to. You can even treat the Saturday after party like a Sunday pre-party if you wish and head straight back to the festival once it’s finished or leave a little early, get your 40 winks and still feel refreshed for another day of dance.

Saturday night will see Ibiza-regular Pete Tong take to the decks as the headline DJ to play a typically eclectic mix of dance classics and summer anthems for the SW4-faithful. In support will be Mark Knight, Rob Marmot, Pirupa, Nico De Ceglia, James Harwood, Holly Bee, Toby Allen, Layla Hay, Laura Essence, Dave Coleman and Jimmy Lee & Jon Slater.

Sunday’s after party, same time, same place at the Gaunt Street club will feature yet another impressive lineup of DJ’s. Layo & Bushwacka! are two of London’s techno-dance pioneers with a reputation that makes them unmissable headline DJ’s. Having never played at Ministry of Sound before they’ll no doubt have an expert set list ready to make for an unforgettable night.

More top-class DJ’s will be on offer across Ministry of Sound’s 4 rooms of music The Box, 103, The Loft and The Baby Box. Playing alongside Layo & Bushwacka! in The Box will be M.A.N.D.Y playing their first ever Ministry of Sound gig as well as World-acclaimed Texan DJ Matthew Dear.

In the club’s other rooms will be: Edu Imbernon, Luke Pompey, Dan H, Cook & Finn, Kieran James, Rob Anderson, James Clayton & Daniel James, Anthony Jefferys, Alan Prosser, Closure DJ’s & Friends, Evan S & Matt Gill, Steve Worrell and Matt Elphick.

Get Diverted & Slide Terrace After Parties @ DEX

(28th & 29th August – 8pm-6am)

With a total of three hours music from We Love Space resident DJ Paul Woolford at DEX on the Saturday and what promises to be an epic set from Funk D’Void on the Sunday, DEX in the heart of Brixton will be a popular SW4 after party destination.

Partying through ‘til 6am both nights DEX will play host to two entirely different but equally impressive world-class DJ’s. Saturday night will see a pioneer of all-nighter clubbing Paul Woolford bring his years of all day/all night Space experience to Brixton’s DEX in an effort to keep the energy of the weekend-long dance extravaganza of South West Four at an all-time high.

Joining Paul Woolford will be Mark Storie in the Toolroom, Archie Hamilton, Rob Alldritt, Mike Mackeeg & Lofty, Alfredo Ramos, David Bevan and Alex Collings for the 8pm – 6am long-haul.

Sunday night at DEX doesn’t just promise to feature a top-notch lineup of DJ’s but will be kicking off earlier, around 4pm, for its guests to grab a spot in the hot tub and enjoy some fresh BBQ food. Aside from the BBQ there’s a musical menu of techno treats and dance delicacies for you to enjoy after SW4 has come to a close.

Lars Sandberg better known as the global electro-dance producer Funk D’Void will play a headline set on the decks offering up his usual concoction of everything old and new. In support, Raymundo Rodriguez, Mark Storie, Rob Alldritt, Samantha Blackburn, Jordan Brown, Warren Mooney, Sybian and Charlie Cantanka will be on hand throughout the night and into the early hours to provide non-stop dance accompaniment to the SW4 Weekender experience.

Carnival & SW4 After Party @ Clapham Grand

(Sunday 29th August – 9pm – 5am)

For those that need a dangerously large dose of dubstep during the August Bank Holiday Clapham Grand’s Carnival & SW4 Afterparty on Sunday 29th is without doubt the place to head to once the festival has finished. With drum ‘n’ bass and dubstep giants such as Andy C and Plastician on the decks there’s no question about the quality and consistency on offer.

Running from 9pm until 5am there will be a full eight hours of after party entertainment to enjoy. Andy C will bring his trademark drum ‘n’ bass with him whilst Plastician, a forefather of the dubstep movement in the UK, will no doubt play some of the heaviest wobbly tunes around.

The list of DJ’s goes on as Badness, Artful Dodger vs DJ Luck and Foreign Beggars will grace the decks too, most likely to bring old school garage, drum ‘n’ bass, house and dubstep to life again. SBTRKT, Captain Crunch, Mr J Cutter & Mekar MC, Slugz & Boyson, Robin Hood and Loot & Prof D will top off the phenomenal after party lineup.

At £12 per ticket you’re unlikely to find this many top-class DJ’s under one roof on a regular weekend, let alone the Bank Holiday SW4 Weekend!
