The mighty SW4 – Clapham Common’s bank holiday dance music explosion – returns for another weekend of big drops, club anthems and arms in the air. If you’re longing for superstar DJs but can’t afford Ibiza and are loath to spend the last days of summer in a dark room, head to SW4 for your fix of big-room house, EDM, electro, techno and trance, as well as other genres creeping in from all angles. As ever, the line-up is teeming with globe-conquering names, the first few of which to be announced include Armin Van Buuren, Dizzee Rascal, Marshmello, Chase & Status, Craig David, Andy C... Watch this space, there’ll be plenty more to come. Fair warning: tickets usually sell out ahead of time, so get in there quick if you want in.

Line-up includes Armin Van Buuren, Dizzee Rascal, DJ EZ, My Nu Leng, Marshmello, Chase & Status, Craig David, Nadia Rose, Andy C.
