Skrillex has been announced as the second headliner of this summer’s South West Four Weekender.

The DJ, who released his new EP ‘Bangarang’ earlier this month, will headline the festival’s closing night, with Chase and Status confirmed to close the show on the opening night. SW4 will be Skrillex’s only festival appearance in London of 2012.

The festival, which is in its third year, will take place on August 25–26 on Clapham Common in the UK capital, with Carl Cox, Erick Morillo and John Digweed also booked to perform. More acts will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
