More names added to SW4 line up..

 

Only a few days ago we bought you news on the arena hosts at SW4, and already they’ve thrown more musical goodness our way. Pendulum, Underworld and Magnetic Man all provide South West Four 2011 with three massive London festival exclusives. A mouth-watering prospect I hear you cry. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg as far as main stage antics are concerned. Things are shaping up rather nicely as promoters Lock N Load now announce the explosive acts set to join  festival headliners on the SW4 main stage this year. On Saturday the 27th the main stage will be ran in association with Ministry of Sound.

Since opening its doors on 21st September 1991 as an alcohol-free nightclub dedicated to house music, Ministry of Sound has gone onto become a flagship for British youth culture; an iconic brand that includes the world’s most famous club, the world’s largest independent record label, and a multimedia entertainment business, all directed from their South London home. 2011 is a significant milestone for Ministry of Sound as it marks their 20th anniversary. To celebrate the Ministry will be involved with a series of events across the globe, none as big as hosting the main stage at South West Four.

In addition to a London festival exclusive live performance from the undisputed kings of electronic music Underworld, SW4 welcomes a huge lineup of world class DJs to Saturday’s main stage, including:

JOHN DIGWEED, LAIDBACK LUKE, PETE TONG (RADIO 1), JAMES ZABIELA, HERNAN CATTANEO and SOS.

Having graced the green grass of Clapham Common on six consecutive occasions, with his Bedrock arena one of the highlights of last year, John Digweed is back. Following his sell out Brixton Academy show back in October and an intimate Bedrock event at London’s Arcadia over Easter, expect John to end the summer in style.

“I am very lucky to have been asked back again to play at one of the UK`s premier Festivals SW4. For me it just seems to get better and better each year, They really do deliver a fantastic day out in the centre of London featuring the world’s best DJ`s and live acts, so to be part of this again is amazing. Really looking forward to my set and also seeing who else is playing. To play to your home crowd in the centre of London is the best experience any DJ could have.” John Digweed

It’s also a landmark year for another of the main stage headiners, 2011 represents 20 years of Pete Tong hosting his BBC Radio 1 show. He has a massive summer ahead with many huge performances celebrating this milestone and a much anticipated return to Pacha Ibiza for an all new residency.

James Zabiela’s last SW4 performance came back in 2009. After having two years away from the Common it was time to welcome the technical whiz kid back. A hugely popular figure and a a stellar addition to any line-up, we’re very excited about what to expect.

Laidback Luke made his very successful debut at last year’s South West Four with a performance that had the Common rocking under the August sun. Continuing to produce some of the biggest tracks to hit our airwaves, not to mention selling out clubs and events the world over. Alongside him is one of the world’s great DJs Argentina’s Hernan Cattaneo who makes his debut at SW4 in 2011.

There are still lots of lineup anouncements to come, and we’ll be posting them up over the next few weeks, for more info visit www.southwestfour.com
