From his humble beginnings to selling out stadiums in his native country, Netsky has become a firm favourite across the globe. Recently announcing his own stage at the mammoth Tomorrowland and selling out a series of tours with his live and DJ shows, Netsky has never been more in demand. He effortlessly moves through the gears as he hypnotizes any audience he is put in front of the and the crowd on the common will no different! 

HYPE 

Known by many to be an absolute wizard on the decks, DJ Hype is one of the most respected drum and bass DJs to ever step foot on this planet. His all-domineering Playaz label has gone from strength to strength each year with standout and sell-out events across many high-profile clubs. Joining the main man will be his protégé himself, Hazard! In a few short years Hazard has knocked out an abundance of anthems and proven himself as an outstanding producer and ultimate force to be reckoned with.

CAMO & CROOKED

Wizards of Drum & Bass Camo & Krooked are one of the most prolific acts in one of the most competitive and ever-evolving movements in electronic music. Their latest album has received rave reviews from far and wide and the duo are showing no signs of slowing down. They tore SW4 to pieces last year and are set to do the same in 2017 as they return to the common for some electrifying drum & bass! 

BBC Radio 1’s Friction’s rise to becoming one of the most-revered Drum and Bass producers and DJs in the world is nothing short of glorious. Being one of the few DJs to use three decks to mash up his mixes immediately set him apart from the rest as he is able to create a highly individual sound and has collaborated with some of the world’s most popular artists. The Brighton man has been a regular at SW4 and bringing him back in this very exclusive way is hugely exciting for us!
