Bloc to return?

Business News Live Business


Bloc is to return this year in some form, despite the fiasco that led to the festival being shut down due to overcrowding on its first night in 2012, sending the company behind the event into administration.

Yesterday a Facebook page and website appeared online promoting something live music-related going by the name of Bloc London. And while details are sparse, verging on non-existent, the fact that the original Bloc Weekend Facebook page has also been updated with the same logos would suggest that it’s not merely a coincidence.

UPDATE 12.30pm, 23 Jan 2013: The Facebook page seems to have been deleted (possibly due to the number of angry commenters flocking to it).
