    Default BLOC Festival 2011: 11th-13th March, Butlins Minehead



    *FIRST TEN ACTS ANNOUNCED*

    Covering the entire spectrum of electronic music culture, Bloc Festival will return to Butlins resort in Minehead for its fifth birthday following four sould-out events to date.

    Forward-thinking, informed, innovative and brain-shatteringly diverse, Bloc’s hallowed stages have so far been graced by everyone from electronica icon Aphex Twin to hip hop royalty Salt N Pepa via dub legend Lee Scratch Perry and dubstep figureheads Skream and Benga.

    Over the previous four years, Bloc has pioneered new sonic possibilities at the same time as representing the bedrock of our scene in a way no other UK music experience even touches. We at Bloc HQ are beside ourselves with delight to release a ten-act taste-test of the 2011 lineup that will be blowing your minds as it is unleashed over the coming weeks and months. Hold tight…

    LFO // MODERAT // VITALIC // CLAUDE VON STROKE // JOY ORBISON // VISIONQUEST ft. SETH TROXLER // DIGITAL MYSTIKZ // BEARDYMAN // DOPPLEREFFEKT // BLACK DEVIL DISCO CLUB

    MANY MORE ACTS TBA

    The man, the legend, the enigma and quite possibly the single most influential UK electronica artist in living memory… we are hugely proud at Bloc to present to you the inimitable Aphex Twin, performing his special AV show for our fifth birthday.



    From twisting early rave sounds into mad, mind-melting forms like ‘Analogue Bubblebath’ and ‘Digeridoo’ in the very early 90′s through the unparalleled electronic bliss of his ‘Selected Ambient Works’, then into the growling fury of ‘Come To Daddy’ ending up with the disorientating beauty of ‘Windowlicker’, Aphex Twin’s discography is as vast and expansive as any other producer on the planet.

    Unpredictable, inspired, irreverent and frighteningly talented, Aphex’s all-too-infrequent sets generally cover the full spectrum of rave and beyond so expect another acid jungle techno noisecore rollercoaster from the most unique talent of the post acid house era.

    Check the Bloc website for a host more lineup additions over the coming weeks...

    Other recent lineup additions include:

    Four Tet // Speedy J // Drop The Lime // Toddla T // Venetian Snares // King Midas Sound // L-Vis 1990 // dOP // Floating Points // Pinch // Daedelus // Shackleton // Soul Clap // Loefah // DJ Pete // Will Saul // SDC // Addison Groove // Roska // Jimmy Edgar // Al Tourettes // Mary Anne Hobbs // Alva Noto // Global Goon // Legowelt // Orgue Electronique // Mark II (Altern-8) // Placid // AGT Rave Cru // Gemmy // Guido // Untold // B12 // Posthuman

    Magnetic Man announced as headliners alongside Aphex Twin!

    Chart-topping dubstep futurists Magnetic Man will be topping the bill for Bloc 2011 in a double headline spectacular with the legendary Aphex Twin.

    The Croydon sound of dubstep has come a long way since we first invited Skream to smash Bloc apart back in 2008. Every time it’s developed, evolved and mutated these guys have been right there at the laser-sharp, cutting edge – and have become superstars along the way. Skream, Benga and their mentor Artwork are a hell of a big noise for Bloc – this will be the first time we have hosted their mesmerizing live show – and what a perfect fifth birthday headline show for our Bloc family.

    Now that we are into 2011, the countdown to Bloc really starts. So in that spirit, we start off the year with one of the many stellar sets from last year’s festival to keep you going through the first week back at work!

    Adam Beyer – Bloc10 set

    Drumcode boss Adam Beyer has been Sweden’s top techno export for the best part of two decades and has collaborated with fellow big guns like Speedy J, Mathew Jonson, Tiga and Marco Carola over the years. His Drumcode label has been thwacking out the most supremely funky and rhythmically heavy techno tunes for 13 years now and his DJ sets are renowned for their depth and uniformly dancefloor smashing capabilities.

    Beyer owns the chunky funky techno sound and his set at Bloc 2010 proves that in full.
