Bloc Festival to return to original home of Butlins, Minehead in 2015

Bloc experienced a disastrous move to London in 2012

Three years after Bloc Festival’s disastrous move to London, the electronic music event will head back to its original home at Butlins in Minehead in 2015.

Bloc’s 2012 launch at London Pleasure Gardens saw the event shut down on its first night amid safety fears due to heavy rainfall.

“As you all know, back in 2012 a move to a new festival location in London very nearly floored us,” Bloc says in a press release. “Later that same year we opened a new venue at Autumn Street where Bloc has steadily built itself back up to where it stands today.”

Among those set to perform at the festival are Carl Craig, Hudson Mohawke, Ben UFO, Pearson Sound, Pangaea, Jackmaster and Modeselektor.

Jeff Mills, Ben Klock b2b Marcel Dettmann, ESG, Omar S, Robert Hood, Karenn and Moritz Von Oswald Trio complete the line-up confirmed so far.

Bloc 2015 will now run in Minehead from March 13-15. More acts will be announced in due course.
