Bloc has announced a grand return to Butlins Minehead for its first weekender in three years.
From March 13-15th 2015, the crème de la crème of electronic artists will takeover the holiday resort. The first 12 acts have just been announced, with iconic Detroit techno DJ, Jeff Mills, topping the bill.
Joining him so far are Modeselektor, ESG, Carl Craig, Hudson Mohawke, Jackmaster, Omar S, Robert Hood, Karenn, the Hessle Audio crew, aka Ben UFO, Pearson Sound and Pangaea, Moritz Von Oswald Trio and Ben Klock, who will be going back-to-back with Marcel Dettmann! And that's just for starters! More acts will be announced as the weeks progress.
After a serious shake-up in 2012 when their festival went tragically wrong, Bloc has been rebuilt itself at a new venue — London's Autumn Street. Having hosted the likes of Carl Craig, Model 500, Surgeon, Clark and Move D over the past two years, it was decided 2015 was the perfect time to bring back the king of underground weekenders.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, Bloc is busting inflation rates, offering early bird tickets for only £140 + booking fee, the same price as when they originally moved to Minehead in 2009. We'll keep you posted on the line-up, so for now, grab yourself a ticket here
