Laurent Garnier will shut down the Bloc festival in 2011

Bloc’s closing parties have always been a bit special. Whether celebrating twenty 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 2010, when it comes to Sunday night you know you’ll be carried off to an astral plane of lunatic togetherness by a megastar you can believe in.

In 2011 Laurent Garnier will be stepping up to close down the biggest weekend there’s ever been, presenting his full live show – the LBS project featuring Benjamin Rippert and Stephane Dri – a.k.a Scan X. Monsieur Garnier is a techno colossus, and we are dumbstruck to be welcoming him to our closing party.

For the first time ever, Bloc has welcomed on board a collaborator to programme the final day on our main stage. Belfast techno mainstays Shine will be doing it in the way only they can – fielding the veritable talents of Matthew Dear to support LBS live.

Win Shackleton’s new Fabric CD

To celebrate his show at Bloc on the subloaded stage, the release of his new Fabriclive CD and the invention of the T shirt, we are giving away five copies of Shackleton’s new Fabriclive CD and a Bloc T shirt thrown in for good measure.

To enter, simply start following us on twitter, at Winners will be chosen at random by a wise old man.

Thanks for a roadbloc’d New Year’s Eve!

The Bloc arch at the fantastic Eastern Electrics New Year’s Eve party was pretty much armageddon the whole night through. Huge props to Matthew Dear, Joker, Roska, Instra:mental, Make Me and Oscar Thornton who rocked it for us. And of course to all you wonderful party people who packed the whole place out!
