THE GALLERY STAGE ANNOUNCED...

ARMIN VAN BUUREN
MARKUS SCHULZ
BT
TALL PAUL
16 BIT LOLITAS
+ VERY SPECIAL GUEST TBA

Quite simply London’s leading weekly club, The Gallery returns to South West Four this summer to host its very own stage for the 4th year running in association with Trackitdown.net. Establishing its reputation for ‘Excellence in the Art of Sound’ each and every Friday night at the legendary Turnmills for 13 years, The Gallery’s move to Ministry of Sound in April 2008 was greeted with open arms by DJs and clubbers alike. The line-up in The Gallery’s stage (as ever) wouldn’t look out of place on the main stage across any festival throughout the land. Having made such an epic impact last year, we’re thrilled to welcome back the world’s undisputed No.1 DJ Armin van Buuren to headline. The Gallery has long been Armin’s London home, and SW4 is now included as part of that extended family. "I’m very happy and excited to be back at one of the best festivals of Europe” says Armin. “I’ve always had amazing nights playing for the London crowd and the atmosphere at SW4 makes it even more magical.”

Armin will be joined by label mate Markus Schulz – who also returns to SW4 for the 2nd year on the bounce due to high public demand! Markus was recently voted The Gallery’s ‘International Resident of the Year’ and his popularity continues to sore all over the world. Next up is a debut show from the brilliant BT. The multi-talented US man is equally at home writing films scores for ‘Zoolander’, ‘Monster’ and ‘American Pie’ as he is with writing dancefloor anthems such as ‘Godspeed’, ‘Flaming June’, ‘Blue Skies’ and ‘Force of Gravity’. A regular at The Gallery at Ministry of Sound, his appearance is set to light up the Common. The biggest man at The Gallery (literally!), Tall Paul makes a special return to his Stage and there’s an early set from the incredible 16 Bit Lolitas... plus one more huge headline act to be announced!!

HUGE LINE-UP ANNOUNCEMENT COMING ON WEDNESDAY!!!

SASHA & JOHN DIGWEED (BACK TO BACK)
UK FESTIVAL EXCLUSIVE

The heat will be cranked up this summer as South West Four can reveal that dance legends Sasha & John Digweed will be this year’s official headline act. Playing a UK Festival Exclusive B2B set, SW4 is the only festival in the whole of the UK where you’ll get to see both DJs playing together. Sasha & John Digweed will be closing the day’s events with a climatic final set on the main stage, as the day turns to night and the real fireworks begin! 2009 marks the 5th year in a row for Bedrock supremo John Digweed, whilst Sasha racks up his 4th appearance on the day. “It’s fantastic to headline this year’s SW4” says John. “I’ve been very lucky to play at nearly all of them, so this should be extra special. It’s a very well organised event that brings out a really cool crowd, and the line-ups always feature the cream of electronic talent. Sasha and myself, don’t do that many festival shows together” continues John, “so we’re both really looking forward to SW4 as London is the clubbing capital in the UK and the crowd really know their music. We never really plan anything, but I’m sure there will be some surprises in our set!”
