Block9, Glastonbury festival’s apocalyptic haven for underground house and techno, had a stellar year at this summer’s event, which ran from Wednesday 22nd to Sunday 26th June.
The 24-hour party of heavyweight sound systems is split into four stages; Genosys, London Underground, NYC Downlow and the all-new new venue for 2016, The Meat Rack, which essentially served as Downlow’s room two.
There was a number of highlights across the weekend including Hot Chip’s Prince tribute, a two-hour deep house set from New York legend Roger Sanchez, Mr. G (live), Berlin’s Panorama Bar resident ND_BAUMECKER and a Rinse FM takeover.
You can now listen to a number of sets from across the weekend below. And if these don’t satisfy your need for music from Block9, there will be more to follow tomorrow, including mixes from Roger Sanchez, The Black Madonna, nd_baumecker, Mike Dunn and Luke Howard.
The area’s co-founder, Stephen Gallagher, also revealed plans for an art installation meets music venue that they plan to open in London in 2018, before touring around Europe.
Speaking about the project, Gallagher told DJ Mag, “We’re planning a brand new, stand-alone structure that can arrive in a city centre location, and is a piece of artwork in its own right from the outside, as well as a whole other world inside.”
