Bloc 2011: Snapshot of a Weekend

Last weekend saw Bloc turn 5 years old, with another mammoth indoor festival that brought the world’s very finest electronic music to Butlins in Minehead, UK.

In a weekend that saw the likes of Aphex Twin, LFO, Magnetic Man, Claude Von Stroke, Mala, Pinch, DJ Funk, Joy Orbison, Laurent Garnier and a whole lot more converge upon the resorts main arena, the 3 day festival pulsated with over 5,000 revellers tuning in to experience the unique atmosphere of Bloc, taking in the arcades, the beach, the dressing up and of course, the quality music at every turn.

Having been there from the start, we thought it only fair to sum up the whole affair with a brief spot of photojournalism, in which our intrepid photographer captures just what it is to be part of it all. Happy birthday Bloc.
