    The Chemical Brothers Live

    Hunter/Game Live

    30 more acts to be announced across 4 stages.

    Presale tickets this Wednesday at 9am London Time. It's via ticketmaster UK. Anyone know if my regular US account works or do I need to register? Doesn't seem to let me log in, but that could be because I don't remember my password. my TM phone app remembers it so I haven't had to actually type it in months.

    Chems and Booka on the same lineup. Definitely bound to be a solid time.

    I have different accounts for UK ticketmaster and the US one. I imagine there will be a lot of ticket vendor options come Friday. They may even be on dice (No booking fees).

    Bought a weekend pass for this. Hopefully there are some great adds.

    There will be lots of great adds. In fact, by the time the whole line up is out you'll look at it and think, 'holy shit, how did they get all these mental DJs and live acts together in the same place over just one weekend? Where do I start and how do I possibly fit them all in?' are also questions you'll ask yourself.

    The sad reality though is that SW4 is not all it's cracked up to be. Sure you'll be salivating at the talent on offer but the urban nature of the festival has meant that from pretty much day one the promoters have fought (and continue to fight) against local opposition to hold the festival on Clapham Common. The 'compromise' has been the strict enforcement of very oppressive sound restrictions, alongside a stupidly early curfew which means it's not even properly dark when the plugs are pulled on the various stages. I've been to 3 or 4 of these over the years and all I need to say is that you can quite comfortably stand right in front of the speaker stacks by the Main Stage and have a conversation with someone a few feet away. The tents are a bit better but still way too quiet to do the occasion, or the music, justice.

    Don't get me wrong I enjoyed myself while I was there (as I'm sure you all will too) but I left every time feeling short-changed. I guess what I'm trying to say is that there are so many better options out there, even just in London, but certainly around the UK and mainland Europe. Although I live in England, I now travel over to Belgium and Holland for festivals as the sound, production and atmosphere are all so much better.

    Thanks for the additional insight Semprini. Hopefully there's some letup on the sound restrictions between now and August. I'm sure there will be some afterparties if they are shutting down early. I'll also be looking for shows before and after since i'll be there from 8/23 thru 8/30 (Tuesday to Tuesday).

    Email from the promoter:

    For those that attended last year (especially on the Saturday), you will remember our new ‘indoor' main stage featured the likes of Fatboy Slim, Carl Cox, Marco Carola and many more. This stage was a huge success from start to finish and we know this was helped considerably by the size and height of the tent, allowing us to angle the sound system into the audience and gain increased sound levels. For SW4 2016 we have taken the huge steps of losing the two stages on the west side of the site to make room for another massive arena (this will be a similar size to our indoor main stage) which will allow us to deliver the greatest sound output the event has seen to date.
    Not only that, but ALL of our indoor stages will close early before the main stage headline act goes on, which as you know on the Sunday this year is the mighty Chemical Brothers. We have been working tirelessly behind the scenes for months with the band and their production team to deliver the ‘FULL’ Chemical Brothers live experience and this is what we will continue to do. We have also increased the size of the main stage to accommodate their massive production which naturally will include some VERY special extras on the night.

    In short, this will be the biggest and best SW4 we have ever staged. All of the acts are now booked and confirmed and we know we have put together a lineup of electronic artists of which our great city has never seen before. Over the coming weeks we’ll be revealing this in full which will also include our massive Saturday main stage headliner(s)!

    Well that all sounds very promising JorgeC. It's been a few years since I've been so perhaps these new tents will make a difference to the sound levels? Main Stage will no doubt still be an issue as it's outdoors but if you can get yourself directly in front of a speaker stack then you'll probably be alright.

    You won't be stuck for nights out during the dates you're over - best bet is to check on Resident Advisor. They always have a big SW4 after-party but they'll be loads of other clubs hosting parties that night in London.
