Sundayï¿½s main stage line-up focuses on the more alternative side of the dance music spectrum. The musical juggernaut that is Pendulum will close this yearï¿½s South West Four with their only London show of the year. Having fused ideas from a plethora of musical genres, weï¿½re delighted to welcome them to the Common for a full live performance that will certainly get the rave juices flowing. In yet another London festival exclusive, Magnetic Man will act as main support. One of the most talked about electronic acts of the past two years, all eyes are on dubstepï¿½s most loved trio. The first lady of BBC Radio 1, Annie Mac, has this year continued to take her ï¿½Annie Mac presentsï¿½ tour across the world with monstrous parties that have turned many a head. Add to that her hugely successful weekly radio show and youï¿½re looking at one of the most talked about DJs of our time. As the leader of the Digital Soundboy System, Shy FX leads a tight-knit team of like-minded Soundboy soldiers. This includes the prestigious Breakage, one of the worldï¿½s premier female DJs B.Traits with MC Donaeo, DJ Markyï¿½s MC of choice Stamina and one of the UKï¿½s most exciting and dynamic vocal talents, Youngman. Adding more live music to the Sunday Main Stage lineup, Londonï¿½s grime sensation Wretch 32 has recently shot to fame after the release of his debut smash hit ï¿½Traktorï¿½. Having toured the UK extensively this year to rave reviews, weï¿½re delighted to add him to the SW4 line-up. Itï¿½s not often you see a life sized dinosaur play electro but this is what can be expected from Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. Beginning her music career as a DJ in London just two years ago, Yasmin has already founded her own successful club night, spun around the world for N.E.R.D., Taio Cruz and Eve and played storming sets at Glastonbury and Ibiza Rocks. Established as a world-class spinner, Yasmin is now ready to make her mark as a fully-fledged artist, singer and songwriter in her own right. Her next stop? SW4.
Together returns to Clapham Common this August after its unforgettable arena at last yearï¿½s South West Four. Heading proceeding is a man that needs no introduction, M_Nus label boss Richie Hawtin. One of the leading pioneers of the techno scene across the world over the past twenty years, itï¿½s no wonder that this man is recognised as one of the greatest electronic artists of all time. Modeselektor bring their widely diverse sound to the Together arena, as they wow the SW4 crowd with a number of genres all compressed into a style that is all of their own. Another leading name in the electronic world, SW4 welcomes Gaiser, one of the most revered artists in Richie Hawtin's Minus collective. Sub Focus will bring his everything goes mantra to SW4 along with his usual blend of air-punching, dancefloor dismantling drum & bass. Andy C, another stand out performer at last yearï¿½s SW4, plays under the Together banner once again and the Ram Records boss will be joined by dubstep star Joker and the brain child of Drums of Death and Mumdance, Mums of Death.
We Love is the greatest Sunday clubbing experience on the planet. Flying the flag for the Ibiza institution is none other Sasha. One of the undisputed kings of dance music, Sasha returns to SW4 to present his V_rtek show for the first time in the capital. Sasha will be joined by Viva Record boss Steve Lawler. The king of Ibizaï¿½s legendary Space terrace, Steve has been on We Love line-ups for as long as we can remember. We Love residents Simian Mobile Disco make their long awaited SW4 debut this year, as does Berlinï¿½s Bpitch Control label boss Ellen Allien, one of Europeï¿½s finest underground DJs Monika Kruse, the mighty Technasia and British sensation Mat Playford.
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. The uber techno lord will be joined by VERY special guest and fellow Swede Eric Prydz, playing under his Cirez D guise for the very first time. Legendary UK techno duo Slam have travelled far and wide in the past but debut at SW4 this summer with a live performance that is sure to get the pulses racing. The techno showcase continues with the brilliant Paul Ritch. His DJ sets and production have seen his popularity rise the world over, much like Ben Sims who also plays. The ï¿½3 deck masterï¿½ is one of the UKï¿½s biggest techno exports and weï¿½re delighted to have him flying the flag. Drumcodeï¿½s very own Alan Fitzpatrick also joins the line-up with a much anticipated live performance, whilst Ida Engberg completes the bill bringing her relentless passion to South West London.
Without doubt the biggest and best lineup we have ever put together at SW4, there is simply no better way to end the summerï¿½
ï¿½We have seen the support bill for the festival and it's absolutely massive. Can't wait to play this event!ï¿½ Rob Swire (Pendulum)
ï¿½SW4 is an important gig for us! Itï¿½s on our home turf, the atmosphere is always incredible and we can get a taxi home at the end. We canï¿½t wait to tear it up in front of our friends and family. This will also be the only chance to catch us in the great outdoors, in the capital this year. So itï¿½s going to be very special indeed - see you there!ï¿½ Skream (Magnetic Man)
