The Welsh festival's launch party in Bristol also features Scuba, October, Claude VonStroke and more.
The BLOC crew are set to take over Bristol's Motion Skate Park later this month, with a party headlined by Chicago icon Green Velvet.
The event will serve as a launch party for BLOC's fifth annual weekend at Butlin's resort in Wales next spring, and will follow the festival's diverse style of programming, with dubstep, techno and party-ready tech house all on offer. In addition to a live set from Green Velvet, the bill in the main room will be topped by head Dirtybird Claude VonStroke, with Andrew Weatherall and Julio Bashmore providing support while Caravan boss October lays down some headier techno sounds. Meanwhile, a much more subheavy affair will be taking place in the Tunnel. Hotflush man Scuba will grace the decks, while Appleblim, Al Tourettes and Ramadanman make sure the Apple Pips sound is in full effect.
Advance tickets to Bloc's Launch Party at Motion Skate Park are available right here on RA.
