Bloc Festival is an electronic music festival in England which began in 2006.[1] It is devoted to electronic music of all genres including electro, hip hop, IDM, techno, house music, reggae, drum and bass and dubstep, and incorporates both DJ sets and live shows.

Bloc London - In 2013, Bloc announced a series of ten events in East London. This marked a departure from the previous model of staging events at venues operated by a third party. The venue is an ex-industrial building on Autumn Street in Hackney Wick. Bloc continues to be held monthly at this location.
