"It's great to be headlining a festival in our home town, London. SW4 always has a killer line up and a great atmosphere and I'm sure it'll be one of the highlights of our summer." Will Kennard (Chase & Status)
South West Four returns to Londons scenic Clapham Common this August, firmly established as one of the UKs most important and influential electronic music festivals. After recently being awarded DJ Magazines coveted Best British Festival at the Best of British Awards, this years offering will close what will be a truly monumental summer for the Capital.
For the first time in our nine year history, the Clapham carnage will cease at 10pm. Thats an extra hour to indulge in the scintillating sights and sounds of the UKs premier inner city music event. So with an extra sixty minutes to play with, this years line-up will be our biggest ever, showcasing an array of prime international artists on a scale never before experienced at SW4. Inspirational talent synonymous with South West Fours success, are joined by a host of DJ debuts and manic live acts. Furthermore with improved sound levels, a freeze on 2011 ticket prices and numerous other enhancements, SW4 2012 will bring to the English summer an even greater festival experience.
For Saturdays coveted headline slot were privileged to welcome the worlds most exciting live electronic act, the enigmatic Chase & Status. For this emotional homecoming, expect an intense immersive ethos incorporating raging riffs and high octane breakdowns. This frenetic formula earned their acclaimed album No More Idols double platinum status and a Best British Group nomination at The Brit Awards 2012.
Their baffling, on-the-fly manipulation of dirty, ferocious beats, has also attracted a devoted global fan base, who live and breathe that tumultuous bass driven sound. Its no wonder, Mixmag nominated Chase & Status for their Greatest Dance Act Of All Time. But lets cut to the chase! With a status as one of the most innovative producers of their generation, this homecoming is preceded by a host of monumental global gigs.
Before shaking Clapham to the core, Chase & Status will headline Miamis Ultra Music Festival and Australias flagship Future Music Festival. The ten thousand mile distance symbolic of their present standing. Iconic postcode SW4 falls nicely in the centre, a subliminal message maybe as this will be the focal point for Chase & Status shining summer activities. A must attend gig for fans of the band and electronic music lovers alike, we look forward to welcoming you all to SW4 2012.
