SW4 is back on August bank holiday weekend - this is one London's, if not the UK's best dance music festivals.

The two-day festival situation in Clapham has gone from strength to strength being nominated for a UK Festival Award three times. With a nice mix of EDM, garage, drum & bass, grime and RnB, SW4 is perfect for the ravers out there whether you're into mainstream dance music or underground. 

Where is South West Four? 

As the name suggests, situated in the south-west of London at the postcode, SW4, is the festival's location, Clapham Common. A tube ride away from major train stations and University campuses, the festival is great for students looking for a big knees up in the glorious August sunshine. And with class out for summer and no work on the Monday, we can all stay up late and have a drink on the Sunday!

Our Pick of the Line-Up 

Day 1: Young EDM star, Martin Garrix blew up after the release of his chart-topping hit, Animals in 2011. His headline show is sure to be a spectacle of big drops and insane pyrotechnics. Craig David is back on the festival circuit with 'TS5' - you know the songs and we all love a bit of UKG nostalgia. The hit-factory that is Tinie Tempah will light up the afternoon headline slot with bangers such as Pass Out and Miami 2 Ibiza, plus Armand Van Helden, Basement Jaxx and rising star, Mabel make for a mix of talent on the first day. 

Day 2: Twisted Firestarters, The Prodigy, headline the second day. After the release of their new album last year, we can't wait to see a mix of the old and the new in their setlist. Chase and Status headline the indoor stage and Plan B is the afternoon headliner, who out of those two will play 'End Credits' is a mystery. Maybe both, maybe together? (we hope so!). Get ready for DnB royalty, Andy C and Pendulum's dubstep alter ego, Knife Party as well as Wiley and and Wretch 32 bringing the grime and hip-hop to Clapham Common.
