Damian Gelle interview

You would think that creating one of the best festivals in London would have most people settled and satisfied, but Damian Gellé has other ideas. Since the launch of SW4 in Clapham Common in 2004, the dance music event has gone from strength to strength, with the likes of Alesso, Armin Van Buuren and John Digweed taking to the main stage, as well as progressing from a one-day party to an entire weekend. A festival that’s showing no signs of stopping, SW4 was a revolution for dance music fans that wanted something different to the Notting Hill Carnival and Lovebox. But now, the man that gave us this epic event has left the UK behind to create something new and fresh in Sydney.
