SW4 festival adds Solomun, Sasha vs Joris Voorn, Andrea Oliva + Andhim
Over the past fourteen years, South West Four has been responsible for bringing the most dominant and popular names in underground house and techno to the heart of the capital. The summer will be no different as we showcase our biggest and most accomplished collection of underground artists to date!
A mouth-watering list of names include industry leaders and most notably the head honchos of Ibiza’s four biggest underground parties. Marco Carola's Music On, Sven Vath’s Cocoon, Solomun's +1 and Loco Dice’s HYTE have dominated the island when it comes to throwing the most in-demand showcases with the finest underground music and we can’t wait to bring all of them to SW4 2017.
The August Bank Holiday weekend will witness these absolute giants of electronic music take over London's biggest dance music festival! ARE YOU READY?
NEXT SW4 SATURDAY HEADLINER ANNOUNCED
Most DJs would be ecstatic with one residency at the clubbing mecca that is Ibiza but not Solomun. The Swiss-born artist was one of the most featured DJs in the Ibiza calendar last summer by holding three high profile residencies at the islands leading venues including Pacha, Ushuaia and Destino. Solomun isn’t only the busiest artist on the White Isle, he is one of the most active artists on the planet with a touring schedule that constantly sees him play to sell out crowds from London to New York and Sao Paolo to Amsterdam. The last few years has witnessed him cement himself in the higher echelon of the dance music elite and he is here to stay. At SW4 2015 he went back-to-back with AME in one of the festival’s most memorable performances and his return in 2017 will spark even greater excitement. Are you ready? We sure are…

SASHA VS JORIS VOORN, ANDREA OLIVA, ANDHIM
SASHA VS JORIS VOORN
Sasha is widely considered to be one of the most recognized and influential electronic music artists of modern time. The last two decades have seen him establish himself as an innovator and true craftsmen in his field. His shows at Fabric in London have gone down in history and he has amassed one of the most loyal fan bases amongst his peers. 2014 witnessed him host his very own stage at SW4 with his Last Night on Earth label, as well as selling out the prestigious 02 Academy Brixton at a high profile NYE show. Now put him alongside another master in Joris Voorn, we have a truly unforgettable performance on our hands. Dutch-born Joris’ smooth and infectious style has made him hot property in dance music and his progress seems no slowing down. From stand-out plays at Village Underground and De School in the last few months, the key player is making the right moves to reach the top of his game.
As a DJ, the summer of 2016 was arguably Andrea Olvia’s busiest yet; he became one of seven all-night guests to regularly take over the Space Terrace for Elrow, made his Music On debut and played some of Europe’s biggest dance music festivals – all whilst maintaining his famed ANTS headliner commitments. His skill for crafting stand out sets attracted the attention of Pete Tong, who helped Andrea make his Essential Mix debut with a set recorded live from Ushuaia. This August Bank Holiday Saturday will see Andrea make his debut at South West Four and he is sure to bring the fire!
2010 was the year Andhim descended upon the dance music scene and since then it has never been the same! The Cologne native’s meteoric ascension to prominence over the ensuing twelve months was unexpected, but not undeserving. Pioneers of their own genre “Super House” which is the physical embodiment of raw soul and pure passion, it soon became apparent that the duo were here to stay. The last eighteen months have seen the pair headline their own shows and play at the most prolific parties in the globe with the fierce ANTS Ibiza taking them under their wing for a series of dates at Ushuaia. The summer of 2017 will mark their SW4 debut and you can be sure that they will bring the heat.
NEXT SW4 SUNDAY HEADLINERS ANNOUNCED
Sven Vath is no ordinary artist. A living legend, his commitment, passion and pure talent has influenced the evolution of electronic music as we know it today. His beloved Cocoon brand is one of the best in the business and the iconic party is back at the powerhouse that is Amnesia Ibiza for a record 18th time with the German heavyweight entertaining over 100,000 people over the summer season. There is no question that he is and will always be one of the most significant artists that dance music has ever seen. We are truly humbled and proud to welcome the one and only Sven Vath!
There is no doubt that Desolat label boss Loco Dice is one of the giants of the underground scene. His uncompromising and raw DJ sets have made him one of the most popular artists in the globe with his brainchild HYTE becoming a hugely successful weekly event at Amnesia Ibiza, hosting hugely exciting parties on the island week in, week out. German born Dice has an undeniable hunger that constantly pushes his sound and brand forward and it is safe to say he is at the peak of his powers. A regular at SW4, 2013 and 2015 saw him play one of the festival’s most significant sets as he went back to back with another icon Carl Cox. This summer will witness his return to the capital for what’s set to be another performance that will leave nothing to the imagination!
