Marshmello and Chase & Status to Headline South West Four 2018
Ahead of their 15th anniversary on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th August, London’s South West Four Festival have unveiled a wealth of the biggest names across the industry for the first phase of the 2018 line-up.
SW4 has long been established as one of the most eagerly anticipated weekends on the calendar, and the organisers will be pulling out all the stops for this special edition of the festival.
Featuring a series of exclusives and chart topping artists, the two-day Clapham Common event will see anonymous American producer Marshmello close the main stage on Saturday 25th August, as he brings his ‘Melloville’ concept to London for the very first time in what will be the masked DJ’s only UK festival show of the year.
Having topped the UK charts in 2017 with his Khalid collaboration ‘Silence’, the Mellogang leader’s reputation continues to soar meteorically. He’ll be joined at the festival by his ‘Twinbow’ collaborator Slushii, who will play a world exclusive triple b2b set with Netsky and Bite This head honcho, Jauz.
The trio join an eclectic range of further names added to the Saturday line-up, including top 10 duo Sigma and platinum hitmaker Jonas Blue, who has enjoyed monumental success since becoming the UK’s biggest global breakthrough artist and earned two Brit Award nominations in the process.
London’s very own Dizzee Rascal will also be hitting the main stage for what will be the grime artist’s only festival appearance in the capital for 2018, with buzzy UK rapper Nadia Rose confirmed to make her SW4 debut.
Sunday will see a further glittering cast assembled as multi-platinum-selling duo Chase & Status headline, as they too mark 15 years as an established force in electronic music with 4 studio albums to their name. An act renowned for crafting heavyweight dance floor bangers, they are set to bring their incredible live show to the South London common for a London festival exclusive.
The duo had this to say about their upcoming appearance and 15 year milestone:
‘2018 represents 15 years of Chase and Status and we couldn’t think of a better place than our home town London and the legendary South West Four Festival to celebrate. This will be one of only a few live shows we are performing this year and will be one of our best yet!!!’
Drum & bass legend Andy C will also be in attendance to bring his raw, untamed beats to the summer show, while global superstar Craig David is also confirmed to present his hugely popular TS5 brand.
‘Hurtin’ Me’ hitmaker Stefflon Don joins the bill for her South West Four debut, with further appearances from Bugzy Malone, Disciples and James Hype among those completing the first phase of line-up for the 2018 edition.
South West Four takes place from 25 – 26 August 2018 at Clapham Common. For the full line-up, plus photos, videos and ticket information, head to our South West Four festival page.
