Yesss all you UK based Dirty Dancers, it’s landed!! On Tuesday Morning, after massive speculation on forums and blogs, South-West Four, the August bank holiday weekender thrown on Clapham Common, London, was finally able to release its lineup:
SATURDAY 28TH AUGUST
ARMIN VAN BUUREN // Special Guests TBA
The Gallery Arena:
SUNDAY 29TH AUGUST
FATBOY SLIM // Special Guests TBA
Carl Cox + Friends Arena:
Boys Noize Records Arena:
Both day and weekend passes are already onsale, you can pick them up here.
And with more guests yet to be announced, you can get artist updates via the South West Four site.
This absolutely mind-blowing lineup looks to be the icing on the cake of a British Summer. With more of a trance-house / electro divide between the two days, SW4 caters for a wide spectrum of music lovers, wiith the best lineup I’ve seen in the seven years it’s been running. Saturday features Armin Van Buuren, John Digweed, Oakenfold and Toolroom Knights, so it’s going to be a case of cherry picking acts, as the lineup is so densely packed with big names. On Sunday, the legendary Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim will be throwing down his only London live set of 2010. Words can’t truly express how incredible Fatboy Slim’s live shows are; it’s something everyone should experience – I’m so psyched on this one. The BNR Arena’s lineup is stacked with some of the biggest names in electro, while the Together Arena features another enthralling Skream v Benga dub-off. I’m speculating here, but with Ms. Dynamite on the lineup, I’d imagine Zinc is the special guest we’ll be wiling out to. Time will tell, but what’s for absolute certain is that GottaDanceDirty™ will be giving you only the best coverage of the weekend. It’s four months down the line, but passes will sell out so be sure to get on it early.
