I first knew that Bloc had been closed down when my mate Si sent me a message. He had come home on leave from Saudi Arabia. The festival was overran on Friday night and sounded like a re-run of Castlemorton back in 1992 in terms of the general chaos and the response to close things down.
A screenshot of the festival Facebook page gives a good idea of the sentiment. The page was later cleansed of a lot of the content. What went wrong? Usually there isn’t just one thing but a confluence of factors. It’s a shame as the line-up was top drawer and London needs events like these.
