Bloc Weekend, back with a vengeance after 2012’s ill-fated edition, has announced its second wave of artists for 2015.
As you’d expect, they’re not messing about, with a small army of dance music’s most in-demand acts represented. Before we get into the names, we’re proud to announce that we’ll be hosting a stage at the festival, along with Boiler Room, Hessle Audio, Electric Minds, Ostgut Ton, Numbers, Houndstooth, Plex, World Unknown, Bodyhammer, Chapter 20, Make Me and Crack Magazine. Now that’s out the way, the new names. Deep breath…
