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.
