This festival is no longer running.
rom a backyard party in the company of 200 party-crazed Aussies, local police and environmental health workers back in London on June 2001 (!), to last year's debut sell-out summer festival in Cardiff. the South West Four gang have certainly come a long way since those humble, yet hedonistic early days. Having resided on the glorious grounds of Clapham Common, London for the past 3 years, the decision to head west to Cardiff on the same August Bank Holiday Weekend (as part of the Metro Weekender, together with indie-dance day Cardiff Calling) was clearly a good one as last summer's outdoor event proved an instant hit with all 10,000 tickets selling out fast! Featuring an all-star cast of DJs including Carl Cox, Paul Oakenfold, John Digweed and Armin Van Buuren, South West Four certainly caught the imagination of the Cardiff community and this year's forthcoming festival is already being tipped to be one of the most sought after parties on the clubbing calendar. We were also rather pleased to have picked up 2 nominations at the UK Festival Awards 2006 for Best One Day Festival and Best New Festival!!
South West Four 2007 will offer even more value for money as we bring you more of the biggest names on the planet, alongside the key clubs and DJs from Cardiff, all played out on the breathtaking backdrop of Coopers Field, Bute Park. Please note: this event will sell-out, so we urge you to snap up your tickets now, whilst stocks last!!
The World's undisputed No.1 DJ (DJ Mag Top 100 Poll 2005/2006), Paul Van Dyk takes over the mantle from Carl Cox as this year's exclusive South West Four festival headliner. Nicknamed 'God' by his die-hard legion of fans, PVD has been one of the most consistent DJ/Producers of the past decade, scooping multiple awards and accolades en route to rocking just about every country on the planet. He rarely plays in Wales, making his appearance extra special, plus with a forthcoming artist album on the way and with a brilliant back catalogue that boasts classic tracks like 'For An Angel'. PVD really is the closest thing to God you'll see in Cardiff all summer!!
