  • Sven Vath, Danny Tenaglia and Francois K are some of the first names out of the bag for this year's South West Four (SW4) festival in London. SW4 happens at Clapham Common on the Saturday of the August Bank Holiday Weekend. The first round of acts has just been announced, and like past years expect big names in progressive, trance, house and techno. Carl Cox headlines the main outdoor stage alongside Erick Morillo and John Digweed as well as The End residents Layo & Bushwacka! with New York progressive legend Danny Tenaglia, Fedde Le Grand and Paolo Mojo also making their festival debuts. Once again, RA is an SW4 media partner and this year we're also co-presenting the Global Stage, which has Cocoon's flambuoyant chief Sven Vath plus Ali and Basti Schwarz, aka Tiefschwarz. New York veteran Francois K as well as Chicago house funster Green Velvet are also joining us for the party. Elsewhere in The Gallery/Heat UK tent there are big names in trance (Armin Van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Sander van Doorn) with more names to come. A fourth stage of names will be announced later so keep 'em peeled. Full line-up so far, and tickets on RA below.
