South West Four 2018 top picks & playlist


With just two weeks to go until South West Four celebrates its 15th-anniversary edition, all weekend and Sunday tickets are now sold out, with the last remaining tickets for the Saturday selling fast.

Taking place at Clapham Common over bank holiday weekend on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th August, the event will see the likes of Marshmello (UK festival exclusive), Armin van Buuren, DJ EZ, Andy C, Dizzee Rascal, Craig David presents TS5, Hannah Wants, Sam Divine and more descend on the capital for an eagerly anticipated weekend of antics.

Amassing a huge back-catalogue of former headliners, including Faithless, Skrillex, The Chemical Brothers, deadmau5, Pendulum (Live), Rudimental, Eric Prydz and Above & Beyond, South West Four started as a backyard party in June 2001 and rapidly grew in number over the next couple of years, moving to Clapham Common in August 2004. As the festival progressed, the crowds increased, and the lineups grew bigger and stronger than ever before.

In addition to the impressive list of headline acts, the festival is renowned for boasting a number of carefully curated stage hosts which has seen Amnesia, ANTS and Fatboy Slim’s Smile High Clubshowcase in recent years, with 2018 welcoming arenas from Oliver Heldens presents ‘Heldeep’, Playaz, Amnesia presents Together, and the debut of ‘Bassline Carnival’.

With a decade and a half of experience, this upcoming milestone is set to be as lively as ever. Find remaining tickets here.
