It’s that time again. We are 14 years deep into raving on the common. When the suburbs become home to Electronic Music Enthusiasts for a weekender of non-stop, feel-good, finely-tuned immenseness!
SW4 like no other London fest, has always been the hottest ticket in town, and continues to grow even stronger, with 2017 promising to be the loudest SW4 yet! Increased sound levels, London’s most upbeat bill of the season and the bank holiday vow to deliver a weekend to remember.
Here are our Top 8 artists we are on countdown to see:
Pendulum are reforming in 2017. You heard it here. Closing the show on Saturday, Pendulum will be headlining and coming back with their first show for six years. This can only be monumental. Having been lucky enough to catch Pendulum a few times the first time around, they never failed to disappoint with their unbelievable energy and ability to get the crowd hyped.
We heard rumours that Sam Feldt will be gracing the stage with his full band and we cannot wait! A non-traditional move for SW4, the Capital FM Arena boasts this fresh faced international superstar, who since his mix of ‘Show Me Love’ has been ultimately unstoppable.
Ok then, watch what we say then… if you like Tom Zanetti, Saturday’s your day then. With his northern charm taking the season by storm, Zanetti is tipped to be our absolute crowd pleaser, geezer at SW4. Someone get us a plastic Champagne Flute of bubbles immediately.
Having graced London recently, we cannot get enough of Eric Prydz. Prydz will be storming SW4 and gracing the usually suburban Clapham Common with anthem after anthem and we literally can’t wait to throw our hands up and all of our caution to the wind.
Jax Jones can do no wrong. Perfecting that feel-good, I can do anything tune, we are ready to rave with our friends and strangers united. Come and find us in the crowd and we’ll cut our best Clapham shapes with you – guaranteed.
UK, South London based collective, Disciples have been giving us feels for some time now and we are stoked to see them right in their own stomping ground.
Make sure you don’t miss DJ and Producer Laidback Luke. If you are anywhere, make sure that you’re in The Ministry of Sound Arena on Sunday for this genius to take over your soul.
OXIDE & NEUTRINO
Because they are an absolute institution. Taking it back to the old skool, Oxide and Neutrino are a sure thing. Unmistakable beats taking over London again. They never, ever left really.
SW4 takes place on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th August 2017 and both dates are absolutely unmissable. Visit www.southwestfour.com for tickets and info.
Let the Electronic take over. See you on the Common.
