The BLOC festival continues to drip-feed lineup delights to the slavering masses...along with exclusive highlights of previous years for download from the likes of Phuture 303. There's also some preview mixes available, such as N>E>D from the Overkill crews fantastic blend-up of artists playing on their stage....sure to mash up the place.
Confirmed acts so far are (deep breath): Magnetic Man, LFO, Speedy J, Joy Orbison, Venetian Snares, Mala, Jamie xx, King Midas Sound, Roska, Drop The Lime and a ridiculous amount more! A particular highlight is likely to be Aphex Twins' live AV show as well as Belfast techno institution Shine's closing night party…making BLOC 2011 one to check for both the chin-strokers and manglers alike.
