Fancy partying away the weekend in a family resort with a fairground and water world, whilst listening to some of the best techno and house offerings in the world? Stupid question right.

Bloc will be returning to Butlins Resort in Minehead next March to blow your mind and leave your ears ringing.

Today saw the first line-up announcement and my-oh-my is it a treat. Thom Yorke will be heading up the bill with his showcase of Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes and fellow collaborator Four Tet will also be taking to the stage to hit us with the good stuff.

Returners this year include Jeff Mills, Ben Klock and Carl Craig, alongside Detroit magician Omar S.

Making sure that Bloc’s roots remain firmly grounded in dark and devilish techno; Rødhåd, Tama Sumo, Trade and Helena Hauff to name but a few.
