Here’s what the crack Southwestfour marketing team has to say:
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. When Carl takes to the decks crowds are swept up in his energy, technical ability and unwavering enthusiasm for the music he plays.
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!
The man responsible for making techno ‘cool’ again with his Cocoon club in Frankfurt, summer residency of the same name in Ibiza and record label pushing some of the freshest sounds around, we welcome German powerhouse Sven Vath. Joining Sven rolling out the seamless techno grooves will be Francois K flying in especially from NYC, what this man has achieved in his lifetime really cannot even begun to be listed in this press release, simply a legend. Next up German duo Ali & Basti AKA Tiefschwarz, two men who single handedly switched on a new generation to techno and finally Chicago-based Green Velvet who’s crazy productions such as ‘Flash’ and ‘La La Land’ have kept club land going insane for years. The hard dance and trance arena features an interstellar line up with Armin Van Buuren, Eddie Halliwell, Sister Bliss, Markus Schulz and Sander Van Doorn.
