Following Friday night’s chaos, which led to Bloc Weekend being shut down following fears of over-crowding, the festival have made a new statement [via Stool Pigeon].

It’s the first word from the festival since a Facebook post in the early hours of Saturday morning, and the first time Bloc have addressed the issue of refunds. The statement reads thus:

“We are currently gathering information about Friday night’s events.

We are also working to ensure that everyone will be refunded for their tickets.

Please bear with us while we do this.

Thanks to all of you, as well as the many artists and crew who travelled across the world to come to Bloc – we are so sorry that we couldn’t deliver the experience we had planned.

And thanks so much to the event control, security, stewards, police and public who worked together to ensure that no one came to harm during the peaceful evacuation.

This is far and away the most important result of the night.

For those of you who are frustrated and angry – we hear you. For those sending love and support – thank you.

More news soon.

The Bloc team x”
