THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
BLOC weekend has been cancelled.

A statement from organisers says:
"By now everyone will have heard that Bloc 2012 was closed due to crowd safety concerns.

We are all absolutely devastated that this happened, but the safety of everyone on site was paramount.

Given the situation on the ground, we feel that it was the right decision to end the show early.

Bloc will not open on Saturday 7th July so please don't come to the site.

Stand by for full information on refunds.
."
