Depends on your skill level. How long have you been sweeping and how good are you at it?
bands/artists I've seen: Protest the Hero, LIGHTS, Andrew Bird, Flight of the Conchords, Incubus, Nine Inch Nails, Between the Buried and Me, Guthrie Govan, Cynic, The Devin Townsend Project, Scale the Summit, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Darkest Hour

Practice Minor Sweeps starting on the 5th string, Minor Sweeps starting on the 6th string, Major sweeps on the 6th string, Dominant starting on the 6th string and some major and minor on starting on the third string.

I also recomend learning how to build your own arpeggios and play over some chord progressions.

Learn you 3 basic major, minor, and diminished patterned 3 string sweeps first, then just build on the 3 strings once you have those down.

With those 3 patterns you can basically sweep a good 70% of sweeps that are done in songs.
