Block9: the faces of the festival world’s ultimate party playground

Block9 hits London next month for a two-day event at the Silver Building...

Block9, the arts duo behind the audio-visual wonderland for electronic music lovers that takes place every year at Glastonbury, is moving studios in London next month.

To celebrate, the team behind the space are throwing a one-off warehouse-warming party at the The Silver Building on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December.

The event is a fundraiser for LGBT frontline charities supported by Block9’s iconic gay club, NYC Downlow, which include All Out, Kaleidoscope Trust and the Disasters Emergency Committee’s east Africa appeal.

The line-up isn’t being announced ahead of the event, but is said to feature the “finest underground talent” from London, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Berlin, Paris and Los Angeles.

The first two batches of tickets have already sold out, with the final release going on sale this Wednesday (29th November). Check the party’s Facebook event for mored details.
