For all you UK-based Dirty Dancers, we’ve got an update for South West Four Festival – the August bank-holiday weekender taking place on Clapham Common this summer. Last week the following names were added to an already stacked lineup (you can view the initial lineup here):

Saturday 28th August, headlined by Armin Van Buuren:
Sunday 29th August headlined by Fatboy Slim:
With the most jaw dropping lineup of any UK festival this summer, you’d be sad to miss out. The festival caters for dance fans across the board: Saturday is pretty trance heavy with some of the biggest names in house music. The Sunday’s more varied, presenting a clash of the pioneers from dubstep, electro, fidget and big-beat genres. Check the SW4 website for further details – In the meantime, you can get your mits on both day and weekend passes here.

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:

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.
