The organiser's behind the hugely loved Bloc weekender have announced that this year's edition, running between the 11th and 13th of March, will be its last. The promoter have stated they are instead going to concentrate on building a London super-club with surrounding studio space. The 2016 edition, taking place at Butlins in Minehead, will play host to Jeff Mills, Four Tet, Nina Kraviz and Thom Yorke among others.

In an interview with Resident Advisor, Bloc co-founder Alex Benson said "Weekenders are strange, beautiful things. Bloc itself has had some very widely publicised ups and downs. For us, in the middle of it, it has been a rollercoaster. Of course, everyone will have been on rollercoasters—they're quite a trip, and leave you euphoric, shaken and with a new-found zest for life. Eventually, you get off having had a thoroughly great time. And that's where we are."

Here's what we thought of Bloc last year.
