Following the announcement that the world's biggest DJs Armin van Buuren and Fatboy Slim will be headlining this year's SW4, we can now reveal the next instalment of mouth watering acts.
These artists were announced at various London events over the Easter Weekend and form the line ups for the indoor arenas. These will be hosted by SW4 faves The Gallery and Bedrock plus newcomers Carl Cox & Friends, Boys Noize Records, Toolroom Knights and Together. We can now announce these additions in full, set to hit Clapham Common on your August Bank Holiday Weekend...
SW4 2010 DAY ONE: SATURDAY 28TH AUGUST
After headlining SW4 in 2009, John Digweed returns by popular demand to deliver another epic set in his very own Bedrock Arena. John plays SW4 for the sixth consecutive year, alongside a galaxy of future stars. This year he has carefully selected an outstanding pool of artists that take Bedrock on a new musical path with a line-up that truly reflects the current direction of the label. Joining John will be acid house supremo Josh Wink, (who returns to South West Four this summer as part of Ovum Record's 15th Anniversary celebrations,) techno stalwart Christian Smith and progressive house hero Guy J. Bedrock also welcomes one of the fastest rising stars of the past year, Joris Voorn to perform live! The Dutch tech-house master will be joined by fellow SW4 debutants Mutant Clan (featuring Timo Maas & Santos) who hit the Common for a UK Festival Exclusive. Heavyweights Paul Oakenfold and Judge Jules return to play The Gallery Arena, with Oakie performing at SW4 for the first time in three years. Debutant Gareth Emery also stars, putting on the kind of show that elevated him to the heights of number nine in the DJ Mag Top 100 poll last year. Another UK festival exclusive comes in the form of Giuseppe Ottaviani who comes to SW4 off the back of Vandit's 10th Anniversary World Tour. Completing The Gallery's mouth watering lineup is the brilliant Jerome Isma-Ae. Finally Mark Knight brings 'Toolroom Knights' to the Common alongside counterparts Funkagenda, Dave Spoon, Dirty South and Joachim Garraud. Toolroom will prove just why their events continue to sell out London's Ministry of Sound and other seminal venues across the world.
SW4 2010 DAY TWO: SUNDAY 29TH AUGUST
When you mention the words South West Four, people can't be blamed for thinking of Carl Cox. Having rocked the South West Four main stage on numerous occasions, Carl is quite simply an SW4 legend. In 2010 he returns to Clapham Common to host his Carl Cox & Friends arena. Techno lord Dubfire makes a welcomed return after his outstanding appearance last year, with another SW4 debut handed to Vitalic, who presents his outstanding V Mirror show live.
Day two of South West Four 2010 continues to showcase yet more names on the alternative tip of dance music. None more so than the inclusion of the first lady of UK hip hop Ms Dynamite, dub-step pioneers Skream, Benga and Caspa and the world's finest drum & bass DJ Andy C. Boys Noize, Housemeister, Djedjotronic and Shadow Dancer [Live] join Sunday's lineup as a part of an exclusive Boys Noize Records showcase that hits the UK for the first time this summer. Fellow electro gods Erol Alkan, Switch and A-Trak have also been added to the bill, alongside debutants Jack Beats, Sbtrkt, Mixhell and queen of the airwaves Mary Anne Hobbs. With all these names now confirmed it's clear all the ingredients are in place for another day of anarchy on the Common.
