SW4 Arena Partners.


Yes, its time for even more festival news! (Honestly, we’re all itching for the season to get underway here). SW4 have revealed their arena host partners for this years festival, which takes palce on August Bank Holiday weekend, 27th and 28th.

With impressive main stage headliners such as Pendulum, Underworld and Magnetic Man, its time to see what the peripheral stages have in store for us. This year see’s the Clapham event partner with some serious heavyweights, promising a mouth watering line-up of treats including:


Sven Väth’s Cocoon is without doubt Ibiza’s leading night and the most important techno imprint on the planet. Since its creation in 2000, the label has thrown some of the most mind blowing parties club land has ever witnessed and changed the electronic landscape forever. Showcasing their biggest lineup in London EVER only the unexpected can be expected when the Cocoon juggernaut hits Clapham Common this summer for its SW4 debut.

As part of the global tour for their much anticipated second artist album, worldwide trance sensation and SW4 favourites Above & Beyond will be hosting a number of ‘Group Therapy’ stages at the biggest dance festivals in Europe this summer. Boasting an arena full of the biggest names in trance,  Above & Beyond bring some power packed melody and euphoria to South West Four.

We Love is the greatest Sunday clubbing experience on the planet. Throughout the summer over 8,000 clubbers pack into Space Ibiza every week for a multi-room, mini-festival that is simply one of a kind. At South West Four the much loved clubbing institution has curated the biggest lineup it has ever presented in London. And with an agenda focussed on showcasing cutting edge music from across the dance spectrum, We Love are the perfect arena hosts for Sunday at SW4.

Together returns to Clapham Common this August after its unforgettable arena at last year’s South West Four. Since then the night has gone onto host a mammoth New Years Eve at the O2 Academy Brixton with Mark Ronson, Annie Mac, Katy B, Fake Blood, Hervé and Zinc. In 2011 Together returns to SW4, this time to take control of the larger 5,000 capacity arena with an even bigger lineup.

As one of the most respected and seminal record labels in the industry, it is a great honour that Adam Beyer has chosen South West Four to host the next instalment of Drumcode in the capital. Following last year’s sold out Ewer St Car Park event, Drumcode has gone onto host events across the four corners of the globe with the label’s annual pilgrimage to the Berghain in Berlin now part of techno folklore. This will be truly unmissable for fans of Beyer’s uncompromising musical vision.

Since 2009 Shake It! has hosted a succession of sell out parties which have taken London’s most discerning clubbers to the most impressive spaces imaginable. Attracting names such as Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin and Laurent Garnier, Shake It! has become an institution in a very short space of time.

We’ll of course bring you the indivisdual arean line-ups as they are releasesd, in the mean time head over to www.southwestfour.com for more info.
