Just a few of the acts that shouldn't be missed at SW4 2016
As the last bank holiday weekend of the summer approaches, most passionate electronic aficionados get ready for the influx of world-class disc jockeys that land in London for the two-day festival that is SW4. And for those who lack the erudition of the festival, it is further reason for you to keep on reading.
Fundamentally bringing some of the biggest acts from Ibiza to Clapham Common for two days may seem like a surreal notion, however, with every year, the festival in SW4 (the post code of the festival) gets more augmented, and this year is no different.

The month that signals the start of the festival season is here and looking better than ever. June, it's good to see you.
There are some genuinely huge and historic festivals cemented in the June festival calendar and London's Field Day continues to prove that it's worthy of cement-status. There's a lot to be praised when it comes to this festival; the organisation, the food, the drink and the atmosphere are all brilliant, but it all comes down to the line-up. There aren't any safe bets and no scheduling based on labels and budgets. This is a line up built on talent and potential.
Because of this, attempting to plan your day and ensure you don't miss the talked about set can be tricky, so allow us to help. As Field Day is now a two day extravaganza, here are the five sets to build your Saturday and Sunday around at this year's Field Day.

This year's Parklife has quite possibly one of the most appealing line-ups for a UK festival - especially such a small one - that has been seen for some time. Never mind the main stages - you can pretty much ignore the main headliners (Example and Plan B) altogether - just look at that DJ line-up; it's like a house fan's wet dream. But there's so much more than pop stars and house and dance acts lighting up the line-up as rock, hip hop and more are on offer at the Manchester festival.
High up on the list (and deservedly so) we have the Queen of alternative electro Jessie Ware, proving just how much can change in a year in the music business. The London-based singer/songwriter was practically unknown when she released her seminal debut Devotion last year and now she's rubbing shoulders with the likes of Rita Ora and Johnny Marr. Also towards the top of the list are The Horrors who may even have some new offerings for the crowd when they play the Now Wave stage on Sunday night. The Maccabees, King Krule and Liars should appease those looking for some more forward-thinking indie too. It's a shame to see Toro Y Moi so far down the list, but what better way to get you into the mood for the rest of Sunday than the disco-infused indie pop of Chaz Bundick? If Sunday is going to be a party, Chaz is the man to get everyone in that all-day party mood.
The festival organisers have especially outdone themselves with the selection of hip-hop on offer too, with the newly reformed Jurassic 5 standing out as one of the potential highlights of the weekend. There's a quality selection of new school heroes as well, with New Yorkers Action Bronson and wunderkind Joey Bada$$ looking like tantalising prospects, and don't be surprised if Joey brings some of his Pro Era cohorts with him. Also, one of rap's most electrifying and entertaining stars Danny Brown will have hip-hop heads writhing in anticipation when he brings his brand of alternative hip-hop to the Hudson Mohawke curated stage on Sunday. His first proper album Old comes out soon, and what a better place to show it off than here?
