As if the research for my previous post was entirely meant to happen; like I have been having epiphanies for months before I even knew it…I stumbled across Bloc.2012. For the past 5 years Bloc festival has been held at various quiet sea-side resorts; but unable to cope with the expanding come back crowds and the high-octane, high volume events, this year Bloc has a new home in Royal Victoria Docks. “Set by the water’s edge, overlooked by the monolithic post-industrial derelict buildings of Britain’s former glory (Millenium Millsclink on link to see previous post for near epiphany ramblings!] licensed until 6AM, the Pleasure Gardens will provide Bloc with a home like no other.”

The project is the brainchild of the crew behind the late-night area of Glastonbury known as Shangri-La, and if anyone has been lucky enough to visit this area at the almighty Glasto festival, they will know that this means tremendously exciting things for Bloc. Mark my words, I have a feeling Bloc.2012 is going to go off big time!

Bloc 2011 played host to an amazing line up including: Aphex Twin, Magnetic Man, Ben Klock, Roska, Beardyman, Joy Orbison, Seth Troxler, LFO and Four Tet to name only a few; and previous years to that, the line ups have been equally epic. The line up for Bloc.2012 will be announced on February 1st, so standby for updates. (We expect some absolute corkers!)

The Raiders are certainly attending and cannot wait!
