BLOC Weekend 2011 (DMZ, Joy Orbison)

Post by jsml » Fri Nov 12, 2010 3:52 pm

First part of the line-up for next years BLOC has been announced, Joy Orbison and Digital Mystikz :5:

Sounds like it might just be Mala though, if you read the paragraph on them. Even so big tings.

So I've never been to BLOC before, what's the deal? I know it's about £150 a ticket and it includes a room but is it cheaper if people share a room, do they let you do that? I'm just not clear on the details of an indoor festival

You book rooms that are intended for 3/4/5 people etc, or you can buy the chalets which are massive rooms with a kitchen and ting. There's a massive list of options when you buy the tickets. It's an incredibly wonderful idea. Going back to your room for a shower rather than a tent is great. I'm all for being covered in mud for 3 days at a 'proper' festival, but there's only so much I can take.

Oh and they say that's 50% of the lineup.... !!!!!

The man, the legend, the enigma and quite possibly the single most influential UK electronica artist in living memory… we are hugely proud at Bloc to present to you the inimitable Aphex Twin, performing his special AV show for our fifth birthday.



From twisting early rave sounds into mad, mind-melting forms like ‘Analogue Bubblebath’ and ‘Digeridoo’ in the very early 90′s through the unparalleled electronic bliss of his ‘Selected Ambient Works’, then into the growling fury of ‘Come To Daddy’ ending up with the disorientating beauty of ‘Windowlicker’, Aphex Twin’s discography is as vast and expansive as any other producer on the planet.

Unpredictable, inspired, irreverent and frighteningly talented, Aphex’s all-too-infrequent sets generally cover the full spectrum of rave and beyond so expect another acid jungle techno noisecore rollercoaster from the most unique talent of the post acid house era.

Check the Bloc website for a host more lineup additions over the coming weeks...

Other recent lineup additions include:

Four Tet // Speedy J // Drop The Lime // Toddla T // Venetian Snares // King Midas Sound // L-Vis 1990 // dOP // Floating Points // Pinch // Daedelus // Shackleton // Soul Clap // Loefah // DJ Pete // Will Saul // SDC // Addison Groove // Roska // Jimmy Edgar // Al Tourettes // Mary Anne Hobbs // Alva Noto // Global Goon // Legowelt // Orgue Electronique // Mark II (Altern-8) // Placid // AGT Rave Cru // Gemmy // Guido // Untold // B12 // Posthuman

Magnetic Man announced as headliners alongside Aphex Twin!

Chart-topping dubstep futurists Magnetic Man will be topping the bill for Bloc 2011 in a double headline spectacular with the legendary Aphex Twin.

The Croydon sound of dubstep has come a long way since we first invited Skream to smash Bloc apart back in 2008. Every time it’s developed, evolved and mutated these guys have been right there at the laser-sharp, cutting edge – and have become superstars along the way. Skream, Benga and their mentor Artwork are a hell of a big noise for Bloc – this will be the first time we have hosted their mesmerizing live show – and what a perfect fifth birthday headline show for our Bloc family.

This is shaping up to be the one of the best raves ever. If you add Horsepower to the line-up I could die happy.
