The Streets and Paul Van Dyk for Metro Weekender
The two heavyweight to headline London and Cardiff...
Loads get loaded they do
26 March 2007
Mike Skinner's urban outfit and the Dutch trance DJ will headline the bank holiday weekend festival, which incorporates Get Loaded In The Park and South West Four.
The Streets top the bill at Get Loaded In The Park, which kick off in Cardiff's Coopers Field on Saturday 25 August before heading down the M4 to take over Clapham Common in London the following day (Sunday 25 August).
Sharing the same two locations, dance festival South West Four will be held on Clapham Common on the Saturday and Coopers Field on the Sunday, with Paul van Dyk headlining both days.
Get Loaded.. and South West Four have traditionally been held as separate events but sharing the same values as well as the same sites, the two united last year under the umbrella of the Metro Weekender.
Now in its fourth year, Get Loaded.. has seen performances from the likes of The Happy Mondays, Babyshambles, British Sea Power, De La Soul, Lily Allen and Fatboy Slim, as well as alternative acts like Howard Marks and The Cuban Brothers.
South West Four is a little more straight forward, a full-on dance marathon featuring an ever impressive lineup of top DJs that have previously included Sasha, Carl Cox, John Digweed and Paul Oakenfold.
Expect loads more acts to be confirmed over the coming weeks, with a second announcement due this Thursday. Virtual Festivals will be first with the news.
