BLOC is a two and a half thousand capacity underground electronic dance festival held in an off season holiday park over three nights of a long weekend.
BLOC is a powerhouse of dynamic, forward-thinking underground music. Featuring rare appearances from Dave Clarke, Amon Tobin, Kode 9, Joey Beltram, Red Snapper and many more, BLOC is set to demolish a generation one more time.
BLOC is designed to be an internationally visible showcase for the underground scene in the UK, focusing on a dual ethos of fanatical and utter dedication to music on the one hand, and an almighty headbanging rave on the other.
BLOC evolved from a Brighton club night into the biggest and best UK festival of its kind for its Year Zero event – BLOC 07. This sold out six weeks in advance, raising the bar for music programming in the UK and proving that rumours of the death of the underground have been greatly exaggerated.
BLOC takes advantage of its holiday park surroundings to feature all sorts of diversionary excitement. Alongside the heavyweight music, BLOC attendees can experience the entire spectrum of leisure, from go-karts and a swimming pool, to the commando death-slide and a quite shoddy arcade. Everyone attending BLOC 08 will also have the opportunity to take part in Ceephax Acid Crew’s Fancy Dress Sunday Acid Bingo Session – a BLOC-wide full-sized game of Bingo to seal in the weekend.
