Luckily for anyone living a car journey away from our capital, Bloc. Festival 2012’s line up is one of the most distracting collection of musicians assembled this year. Genre giants, legends and recent innovators rub shoulders in London Pleasure Gardens for two days, starting on the 6th of July. Snoop Dogg, Flying Lotus, Four Tet, Steve Reich and Orbital are few among the long list of teeth grindingly good acts; perhaps the most anticipated being Amon Tobin’s acclaimed live show ISAM, which fuses his influentially groundbreaking music with stunning and original visuals.
Come rain or shine, tickets are bound to be a safe investment for your summer festival wish-list. Did I mention the converted Communist Ship moored up as one of the weekend’s venues?
