Iconic 90s trio Faithless will reform after a four-year absence to headline South West Four Weekender on Clapham Common to celebrate their 20th anniversary this summer.
The electronic music festival, now in its twelfth year, continues to go from strength to strength having been named Best British Festival at last year’s DJ Magazine awards.
Londoners Faithless split in March 2011 after playing two farewell shows at the Brixton Academy and singer and DJ Sister Bliss cannot wait to return to the stage this August.
“This summer we play South London’s SW4, the only festival date in the city where it all began for us,” she said. “It’ll be a very special homecoming show, see you there!”
Faithless have sold more than 15 million albums worldwide with their back catalogue including top 10 hits like Insomnia, We Come One and God is a DJ.
More than 100 other acts have been confirmed for this year’s event on the August Bank Holiday weekend, including Eric Prydz and Luciano.
The Sunday line-up is yet to be announced, but Fatboy Slim will headline the second main stage, an indoor venue which, with a 10,000 capacity, is the largest ever built on Clapham Common.
“I’m heading back to South West Four to host my very own arena on Saturday,” he said. “Normally that means you just put up a bit of bunting, but we’re trying to take it further with something called Smile High Club.
“The Smile High hostesses will be your stewards making sure you have a comfortable ride.”
