    Default Bloc. 2015

    Bloc is back at Butlins, Minehead between
    March 13th – 15th 2015.

    Featuring, but not limited to:

    Jeff Mills / Ben Klock b2b Marcel Dettmann / Modeselektor /

    ESG / Carl Craig / Hudson Mohawke /

    Jackmaster / Omar S / Karenn / Robert Hood /

    Hessle Audio feat. Ben UFO, Pangaea and Pearson Sound /

    Moritz Von Oswald Trio /

    + many more yet to be announced.



    It has been three years since the last weekender was held at Minehead. Having previously staged five awesome, sold-out weekenders between 2007 and 2011, we're thrilled to have been invited back to take over Minehead once more by the good people at Butlins.

    As you all know, back in 2012 a move to a new festival location in London very nearly floored us. Later that same year we opened a new venue at Autumn Street where Bloc has steadily built itself back up to where it stands today.

    We're happy to have hosted dozens of parties here, showcasing performances by Carl Craig, Model 500, Surgeon, Clark, Todd Terje, Green Velvet and Move D among many others, and we've been humbled by your magnanimity in welcoming us back. It's been amazing meeting so many of you at these nights - and getting the opportunity to talk about the return to Butlins in person.

    To celebrate our return to the world of the weekender, we're making early bird tickets available at exactly the same price they were when we first went to Minehead in 2009 - just £140 + booking fee.

    We can't wait to get stuck in back where we belong – at Butlins. It's going to be special. Hope you can all make it.

    Love,

    Bloc.

    This keeps getting better...

    Warp flag-bearers and true pioneers Autechre have been added to the huge bill of next year’s Bloc Weekend in Minehead.

    The line-up has also been significantly expanded with the addition of I Love Acid and the re-launched electro institution Electrix Records, who will be bringing the likes of Keith Tenniswood, Silicon Scally and Luke Vibert with them.

    The festival will also welcome a showcase by synth building crew London Modular featuring sets played fully live on modular gear. Richard Devine, Steevio & Suzybee and Defekt are among the technical wizards taking part in that corner.

    Appleblim and Duke Slammer have also been added to the impressive DJ line-up, which includes Jeff Mills, Carl Craig, Hudson Mohawke and Jackmaster.

    !!!

    We kick off a new film series with a first-person account of the much-loved UK festival.

    There's more to a festival than who played and how good they were. The crowd, the venue, the overall mood, that all-important thing we refer to as "the vibe"—these are just some of the factors that make a festival truly memorable. Because in the end, what we're looking for at these things isn't just a good weekend out, but something genuinely transcendent—an experience that briefly takes you out of yourself and, ideally, stays with you for the rest of your life. Good festivals will suck you into a state of mind that exists only for those few days.

    Inside is a film series that aims to capture some of that magic. With a first-person perspective of the action, combined with footage of choice performances, we hope to catch at least a fraction of the atmosphere at these singular events. Bloc., with its killer lineup, classic rave spirit and wonderfully unconventional setting (Butlins Minehead) is a natural choice for the first edition.
