WELCOME TO SOUTH WEST FOUR 2014…

Twelve months after celebrating our 10th Anniversary, South West Four returns to our spiritual home of Clapham Common across the August Bank Holiday Weekend. Eighty of the world’s leading DJs and live electronic acts, as well as tens of thousands of dance music enthusiasts, will help write the next chapter in SW4’s illustrious history. In recent months we have been busy constructing a lineup that takes SW4 into a new stratosphere and in 2014 we will welcome heavy hitter after heavy hitter. There are no filler DJs, no artists not capable of delivering a truly world class performance. We know you expect the VERY best and that is what we will bring you from the start to the finish, as we move into a new era in the development of our much loved festival. It has been said before and it will be said again; when it comes to SW4 there is simply no better way to end the summer…

YOUR SW4 2014 SATURDAY HEADLINER IS…

 ABOVE & BEYOND

[EXCLUSIVE LONDON PERFORMANCE 2014]

“Performing in our home city is always special and the fact SW4 is an open air, summer event, gives it a nice extra twist that we’re looking forward to.” Above & Beyond

Headlining day one on Saturday 23rd August, South West Four welcomes Above & Beyond for their exclusive London appearance of 2014 and first major open air performance in their home city.

The trio of Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamäki have enjoyed an unstoppable ascent to the summit of electronic music, filling arenas across the planet in the process. Their landmark events at Brixton Academy (in 2010 and 2012) and Alexandra Palace (in 2013), have been amongst the most significant electronic music events to have taken place in the Capital in recent years and their performance at SW4 will be no different.

Returning home at the very height of their career, South West Four will be A&B’s biggest ever London performance and their first headline appearance at a major UK festival. Unique video messaging and story-telling visuals will add to the Above & Beyond experience, whilst their emotive tracks will have never sounded better. Fans from all four corners of the globe look set to make the pilgrimage for this pinnacle moment in their history, making SW4 2014 a must attend event for their hugely devoted fanbase. This will be Above & Beyond at their biggest, boldest and most electrifying.

An overspill of emotion and delight greeted the announcement that Above & Beyond will return to South West Four this summer for the biggest London date of their lives and their only performance in the Capital this year. Their headline performance on 23rd August resulted in a huge uptake in the SW4 pre-sale, with thousands already committed to spending their Bank Holiday Weekend on Clapham Common. These record smashing ticket sales have even exceeded those from our 10th Anniversary, as in 2014 we look to eclipse all previous SW4 experiences.

With eighty of the world’s leading electronic music acts primed to join you at SW4, we can now reveal three more world renowned DJs to join the Saturday bill. Having pursued these acts extensively for many months, we are delighted to welcome two massive debutants and the return of a legend to South West Four 2014…

A man who needs absolutely no introduction joins the Clapham Common festivities for the very first time in 2014, as Jamie Jones finally makes his South West Four debut. Widely regarded as the leader of the new house sound that has dominated dancefloors worldwide over the past five years, Jamie’s slick and sexy adaptation of the 4×4 beat has resulted in his rapid catapault to global superstardom. Jamie’s pioneering sound has been instrumental in the success of his cross genre band Hot Natured and iconic label Hot Creations. This, along with his role as the face of Ibiza’s seminal nightclub DC10, has paved the way for a warmer and more melodic side of techno to emerge. Adding to this the recent launch of his second label HOTTRAX, plus his superb ‘Planets and Spaceships’ EP and its clear that Jamie joins us at SW4 at the very pinnacle of his career.

A true SW4 legend makes his welcome return in 2014. That legend is Sasha. Having previously headlined South West Four three times (more than any other artist), Sasha’s exploits on Clapham Common are the stuff of folklore. His unrivalled ability to evolve and adapt to the ever changing world of electronic music has resulted in his international reputation as one of the greatest DJs to have ever walked the planet. The past twelve months have seen Sasha demonstrate his ground-breaking status further through the release of Involv3r, recently nominated for Beatport’s Album of the Year, a Mixmag front cover and a simply unforgettable headline appearance on New Years Eve at Brixton Academy as part of his Last Night Night On Earth label takeover.With recent standout performances serving to raise the benchmark of Sasha’s genius even further, we look forward to welcoming back one of SW4’s favourite sons with open arms.

Conistently cherished as the world’s finest and most infleuntial female DJ, Magda makes her SW4 debut in 2014. The Detroit-raised artist joined the M_Nus family back in 1998, soon establishing herself as one of the most revered DJs in the world today. Her performances alongside long standing friend Richie Hawtin have obliterated the world’s leading clubs and festivals for over a decade and we look forward to similar wild scenes at SW4. Now steering her own label Items & Things along with co-owners Troy Pierce & Marc Houle, the imprint has provided an ideal platform for many other world class producers to showcase their sound. As an artist that prides herself on developing within such a fast-paced scene, her constand demand has led to one of the most impressive touring schedules around. South West Four get ready to be blown away by Magda.
