Bloc Festival – Cancelled

I’m sure by now most people will have heard that this years Bloc Festival was cancelled.  We were supposed to be covering the entire weekend on the Main Stage featuring artists like Amon Tobin, Snoop Dogg and Orbital among others.

We had only been on-site a matter of a few hours before it became apparent that the entire event was going to be shut down.  From our own observations on the ground this was absolutely the right decision to take on the part of the organisers.  It’s a very sad outcome but was unavoidable.  We wish the organisers well and hope that the fall out can be limited and this unfortunate event doesn’t mean the end of Bloc.

Whilst we were there we met some fantastic festival staff that had been involved with Bloc Festival from the very beginning, they were all extremely upset by the turn of events and we wish them all the very best along with the organisers.

There has been much speculation regarding the reasons for the early closure but this really is futile, the MET and the organisers will make their reasons known as soon as possible in the mean time jumping to conclusions helps no-one.

“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.

Orchestra in a Field – Charles Hazlewood

Had a great time at Charles Hazlewoods Orchestra in a Field gig this past weekend. I even got to build and have a little play with a set of Tubular Bells rented from Mike Oldfield no less. Very good event, had the opportunity to meet some very talented people like Charles, Will Gregory & Adrian Utley.

A particula highlight was the Premier of The British Paraorchestra

WaysandMeans – Fugazi Video

This is/was amazing good fortune! Rather than being behind the lens for the filming I had a starring role! Lenssniper was cast as a cider drinking hobo, sat on Turbo Island on a Saturday Afternoon. It’s amazing how many people you know pass by when you sit still.

We all had a LOT of fun making this, you can see the stills here.

The video is ready to watch!
