The story of Bloc 2016 in 36 photos

Last weekend, the FACT team descended on Minehead along with thousands of discerning clubbers for the very last Bloc Weekender at Butlins.

The holiday resort was the bizarre backdrop to the festival, which saw Jimmy Edgar, Andrew Weatherall, Midland, Daniel Avery, Bicep, Goldie and more play at the FACT stage, while Omar-S, Nina Kraviz, Jeff Mills, Ben UFO, Holly Herndon, Jane Fitz, Thom Yorke and Shanti Celeste graced the other stages.

FACT’s Carys Huws took some time out with Nina Kraviz, Powell, Dan Avery, Floating Points, Amy Becker and Move D during the weekend. Catch the action via the photos below by Carys, Pawel Ptak and Luis Munoz.
