Loco Dice

Saturday offers up some serious heavyweights, with Laidback Luke, Pete Tong and the almighty Underworld headlining on the main stage. If that doesn’t tempt you, head over to the Cocoon arena to enjoy the master of minimal, Loco Dice, and the big man himself, head of Cocoon and king of all things electronic, Sven Vath. Prefer your music a little bouncier? Try the highly punctuated Shake It! arena, with M.A.N.D.Y and Layo & Bushwaka! With that many exclamation marks, how could it not be great?

Once you’ve had a rest (or stayed up all night at one of the many after parties), you can do it all over again. Sunday’s line up is a little grittier and bassier, just to really help with that hangover. At the main stage, check out Annie Mac, current grime favourite Wretch 32 and the always impressive Magnetic Man. Pendulum are headlining, and as it’s their last appearance in London until 2013, it’s sure to be a big one. Digital Soundboy System, featuring Shy FX, Breakage, B.Traits with Donaeo, Youngman and Stamina MC will also be there to provide some jump up old school jungle. Perfect.

As if they haven’t spoiled you enough already (oh, SW4!), there’s also acts such as Andy C, Simian Mobile Disco, Subfocus and Richie Hawtin (who we'll be speaking to soon). It’s all too much. We’re going to have to have a little lie down in preparation. See you there.


SW4 takes place on Clapham Common on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th August. Buy your tickets here. Only Sunday tickets available. Tickets start at £45.
