Bloc festival announces first names for 2011

Dopplereffekt, LFO, Claude VonStroke (pictured above), Moderat, Digital Mystikz and Black Devil Disco Club are among the first names announced for next year’s Bloc festival.

It’s quite an impressive statement of intent for the festival, which will be held at the Butlins Resort in Minehead, UK, with the event scheduled to take place March 11-13.

British act Beardyman has also been added to the bill alongside London pubstep producer Joy Orbison, French electro kingpin Vitalic and the Visionquest crew, aka party boys Seth Troxler, Lee Curtiss and Shaun Reeves.

Although only five years old, Bloc has already built a loyal following thanks to its friendly atmosphere and eclectic lineups that veer between established legends of electronica and key players in emerging scenes; Derrick May, Salt N Pepa, Martyn and Autechre were among those involved with the 2010 festival.

Expect more names to be announced shortly.
