Bloc Announce New Home for 2012

Bloc Weekend have annouced their new home for 2012, and we have got to say it looks pretty epic!

This years festival will take place on the 6-7 July at the London Pleasure Gardens. Set by the water’s edge, overlooked by the monolithic post-industrial derelict buildings of Britain’s former glory, licensed until 6AM, the Pleasure Gardens will provide Bloc with a home like no other.

The project is the brainchild of the crew behind the late-night area of Glastonbury known as Shangri-La. Their vision was to create a multi-faceted space in the heart of Olympic London to facilitate the arts and culture happenings that have made London what it is.Making use of the permanent venues that will be at the pleasure gardens – the ‘Hub’ stage from Shangri-La for one, a 30 metre diameter geodesic dome for another – Bloc will also take advantage of the limitless versatility the venue has to offer by creating never-been-dreamed-of structures, including a vast custom-built main arena constructed from shipping containers. All the stages will be within walls and covered.
