Heading to Bloc.2012 today/not going to Bloc.2012 today? Here's a duo of playlists, courtesy of SMP user Leigh Brown, to get you in the mood/give you that festival experience from the comfort of your own home.
For fans of electronic music, you won't find a better lineup all year than the one at Bloc.2012. Opening night features everyone from Snopp Dogg, Nicolas Jaar and Richie Hawtin, to Jamie Jones, Art Department and the greatest DJ in the world, Ricardo Villalobos.
The Saturday lineup is equally impressive, as the spectacular London Pleasure Gardens plays host to such luminaries as Jeff Mills, Squarepusher, Orbital and Gary Numan, alongside stars of the underground such as Elle Alien, Four Tet, Kode 9, Jon Hopkins and many, many more.
Many thanks to Leigh Brown for these playlists.
