After the cancellation of the Bloc festival on Friday night, Baselogic have announced that they have gone into voluntary administration. Here we explain that means.
Bloc 2012 was a disaster, for organisers and fans alike. Music, party and travel plans were ruined for tens of thousands of people who had come from all over the world for the festival. These events have now taken an even darker turn with the organisers filing for bankruptcy.
Below is a press release we just received from London Pleasure Gardens.
Bloc Weekend at London Pleasure Gardens- Closure
Bloc 2012. By now, you’ll have heard that it was a disaster. Two of our members were there when it all went wrong: Phil and Rowan share their experience and thoughts on why it went wrong.
Bloc 2012, the most hyped festival in the UK this year, looked like it was going to be an amazing two days. Snoop Doggy Dogg, Orbital, Joker, Kode9, Four Tet, Flying Lotus, Amon Tobin (to name but a few) were all set to play over the weekend. So, feeling pretty hyped about it ourselves, we bought two weekend tickets. Little did we know what was about to happen: ticket breakdowns, poorly designed stages, massive queues and a police shutdown.
