South West Four 2008
London's biggest and best outdoor dance event returns to Clapham Common for its fifth year as one of the UK's leading dance festivals on Bank Holiday Saturday 23rd August. Unrivalled by any other London-based outdoor festival and now firmly established on the UK summer festival circuit, South West Four is your one-way ticket to superstar DJ heaven...
Firmly installed as one of the biggest bands in the world, with multi-million-seling albums and mega media coverage taken as read, Coldplay somehow manage to retain a sense of shared intimacy at their gigs. When the lyrics from hugely popular songs like Yellow or Clocks trip out of Chris Martin's mouth, it's a great excuse for a communal singalong...

Have you heard of this Elton John guy yet? Well, he's a knight. And, he's sold a few albums. A few hundred million, actually. Though Sir Elton is famous for any number of things - his unparalleled ability to churn out melodies, his clothes, his stage presence - simply listening to the records at home will only get you a fraction of the legendary experience.
Le nozze di Figaro - Royal Opera House
Count Almaviva's attempts to bed his manservant Figaro's fiancÚ Susanna are repeatedly thwarted by those around him, including his own wife, the Countess. In such enlightened times if the Count wishes to dance, then Figaro will make sure it is to his tune and not the other way round...

South West Four Competition
Topping the bill in 2008 sees a welcome return to the people's champion Carl Cox, a DJ who come rain or shine has proved himself to be the best crowd rocking DJ around (as his recent 2 sell-out Heaven clubs events showed!) His unique blend of techno, house and electronic beats has seen him win the hearts and minds of clubbers the world over. A professional DJ since his early teens, a veteran of acid house a champion of techno (and an award winning disco dancer!) When Carl takes to the decks crowds are swept up in his energy, technical ability and unwavering enthusiasm for the music he plays. Week in, week out for nearly twenty years Carl has been placed firmly at the forefront of dance music and club culture.
Joining Carl will be another SW4 veteran and Subliminal Records head honcho Erick Morillo, a man who had the pleasure of headlining our very first event when we were just a wee 10,000 capacity festival! Also making a welcome return to the event and the main stage is Bedrock main man John Digweed. After doing a sterling job hosting his own arena in 2007, we thought it was only right to put him front and centre. Our first 'fresh blood' for 2008 sees Dutch chart topping sensation Fedde Le Grand unleashed on the main stage, prepare to 'put your hands up' for one of the hottest new DJ / producers in the world! Also making their SW4 debut will be Olmeto Records' bosses and the duo responsible for the anthem 'Love Story' Layo & Bushwacka alongside a man that really needs no introduction and a DJ loved the world over... step forward SW4's very special guest Danny Tenaglia!
