"Heading into this weekend and the heads behind Bloc should have been feeling quietly confident, particularly given that for the past five years they have put on some of the most groundbreaking electronic music festivals in the UK. Without overdoing the hyperbole, Bloc used to be spoken about in hushed, reverential tones, and for anyone who has ever attended the legendary events at Pontins or Butlins, the level of respect remained high and extremely steadfast. What people particularly appreciated were the unique venues, the stellar line-ups, the incredible attention to detail when it came to sound and visuals, the on-site accommodation, and the relatively small capacity. But that was then, and this is now."
