It wouldn’t be a bank holiday in London without South West Four.

The festival has become an institution of August’s long weekend, and is set to return for another big-hitting edition.

With a typically huge line-up, drawing in some of the best known DJs in the game, it looks set to be a smash.

This is everything you need to know about South West Four.

When is South West Four?

The two-day festival will take place on Saturday August 24 and Sunday August 25.

Where is South West Four?

The whole thing will take place on Clapham Common in south west London.

Are there any tickets left for South West Four?

Unfortunately not. It’s always a hugely popular festival and this year has proved no different, with both day tickets and weekend passes selling out.

As always, think twice before buying a ticket second-hand. Getting a ticket from a tout is a risky business, and could mean you end up with a fake that doesn’t let you into the festival, but leaves you out of pocket.

Who’s on the line-up?

If you did manage to bag a ticket, then there is plenty to look forward to — South West Four always draws in the heavyweight DJs.

Martin Garrix, Sigma, Armand Van Helden and Oliver Heldens are the biggest names set to perform on the Saturday, while Sunday welcomes Pendulum, Chase and Status, Andy C and more.

It’s not just dance music, either — Tinie Tempah, Craig David, Wiley and Mabel are among the artists from the worlds of pop, rap, grime and R&B scheduled to play.

The full line-up is here.

Where is the after party?

Due to London’s strict licensing laws, the festival will stop the music before 11pm on both nights. Not to worry, though, as you can keep the party going at the two official after parties.

On Saturday night, Ministry of Sound will play host to the likes of R3hab, Martin Jensen and Technik, while Sunday night sees Fabric welcome Friction feat. Linguistics, Distinkt, DJ Hype B2B Randall and plenty more.
