Laurent Garnier to close Bloc 2011 with full live show!

Yet another massive addition to the lineup for what is already set to be one of the key music events of 2011, Laurent Garnier will be joining the Bloc line up to present: LBS – live, featuring Laurent Garnier, Scan X and Benjamin Rippert, and they have the honour of seeing out Bloc. 2011 on the main stage.

Bloc’s closing parties have always been a bit special. Whether celebrating 20 years of acid house with Phuture 303 and Ben Sims in 2008, Carl Craig nailing the party to the wall in 2009 or Derrick May’s unforgettable end to Bloc. 2010 – When it comes to Sunday at Bloc night you know you’ll be carried away by a megastar you can rely on.

This year techno colossus Laurent Garnier steps up to close the biggest ever Bloc. weekender. Restlessly inventive, heroically relentless and unquestionably innovative, Garnier will be joined on stage by Benjamin Rippert and Stephane Dri – a.k.a Scan X – to create a once-in-a-lifetime live techno living dream. Epic, is not the word…


Shine Closing Party- Mathew Dear.  

For the first time ever, Bloc. has invited a collaborator to programme the final day on the main stage. Belfast techno institution Shine will be doing it in the way only they know how: fielding the veritable talents of Matthew Dear to support LBS live. 

Shine is a heavyweight techno institution from Belfast, and in its esteemed 15 year history has hosted everyone from Sven Vath to Aphex Twin via Richie Hawtin and Ricardo Villolobos. And this March Bloc. welcomes their storming Belfast vibe to Minehead for the first time.
