The SW4 line-up just got bigger and better — with the announcement that Eats Everything will be hosting his own stage.
We've also got some more line-up additions, joining headliners Above & Beyond (Saturday) and Deadmau5 (Sunday) for the August bank holiday weekend event on London's Clapham Common.
Eats Everything, whose 12-date residency at XOYO in London this year has helped propel him into the big league, will be hosting his own 7000-capacity 'Edible' stage at SW4 festival this year. This will be his exclusive London performance this summer.
Artists already confirmed to play his stage include legendary French techno don Laurent Garnier, Heidi and Catz N Dogz.
Eats won Best Breakthrough Producer at DJ Mag's 2011 Best of British Awards and hasn't looked back since. He scooped the Best DJ award at 2012's Best of British, and then started appearing on line-ups doing back-to-back sessions with Pete Tong and all sorts as his star ascended rapidly. Along the way he's collected a number of super-fans — including the two in the film below:
Above & Beyond were the first headliners to be announced, and it can now be confirmed that they will be joined on Saturday 23rd August by Jamie Jones, Sasha, Magda, Alesso, Markus Schulz, Arty, Super8 & Tab, Fedde Le Grand, Paul Kalkbrenner (live), Booka Shade (live), Seth Troxler, Tale of Us, Paco Osuna, Guy Gerber (live) and more.
Meanwhile, in mid-March it was announced that Deadmau5 would be the Sunday headliner — closing the festival in the slot previously held by Fatboy Slim, Pendulum and Skrillex. The Mau5 — also playing his only London show of the summer — will be joined that day by Maceo Plex, Marco Carola, Netsky (live), Skream, MK, Andy C, Eric Prydz, Maya Jane Coles, Claude VonStroke, plus the names announced above as playing on Eats Everything's stage (Laurent Garnier etc).
SW4 has been a daytime festival since the early noughties, growing exponentially each year, and is now a major part of the international dance music calendar.
