US trio Salt-N-Pepa will perform their first live show in 15 years at next year’s Bloc Festival, with Grandmaster Flash and Derrick May among the other names to be announced.

Techno fans are, as always, well looked after: May will be joined by Adam Beyer, Surgeon, Luke Slater, Nathan Fake and Autechre at the weekend festival, to be held March 12-14 at the Butlins Resort in Minehead, UK.

They will be joined by dubsteppers Skream, Benga and Joker, cosmic disco head Lindstrom and hip-hop act Roots Manuva, with more acts still to be announced.
