Dance Take-Over: Try London’s South West Four Festival Out For Size

Graham Joy (

London’s premier electronic music festival, South West Four, is returning for Summer 2018 – and we’ve got tickets.

Celebrating their fifteenth year of al fresco dance mischief, the capital’s favourite dance music festival returns to Clapham Common on August 25-26 with a stellar schedule. Bristling with big-hitters and international names (did someone say Chase & Status?), the two-day event is set to feature festival veterans and fresh faces alike.

sw4 Line-up

Pulling in the biggest names from the world of electronic music year on year, South West Four’s weekend takeover is a date for every electronic music fan’s diary. This year’s roster is bursting at the seams, with headliners including Chase & Status Live, Marshmello, Dizzee Rascal, Sigma, Armin Van Buuren, Oliver Heldens, Craig David’s TS5, Andy C, Sub Focus, Wilkinson, and SASASAS taking to the festival’s many stages. Phew, try saying that in one breath.

All the perks of a music festival without the need for a tent, SW4 cleans up when it comes to convenience. Tickets are flying out the door, but we can guaranteed you the best-price South West Four tickets right here. Yup, you can get your hands on a ticket and still have enough change to grab a beer before Galantis. It’s a win-win.

Our hot tips for the weekend? Check Hannah Wants out for size. Crowned Mixmag and DJ Mag’s Best Breakthrough DJ, 2012, the former Aston Villa L.F.C. player knows how to hold a crowd in the palm of her hand. Disciples are also bound to pull off some magic during their set, alongside steadfast crowd favourite Jonas Blue.

That being said, you’re likely to find us raving with Idris Elba, as the Luther star battles it off with Birmingham bass hero Low Steppa. With over 23 years experience behind the decks, this is one appearance that shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise (he’s played Glasto, didn’t you know?).
