Bloc Weekender 2011

01. April 2011 by Jason Turner

3 A couple of weeks ago I took a few days off to head down to Minehead to do some photography for Bloc Weekend. In short they had an absolutely incredible line up and I spent 3 days getting to know my new Canon 5D Mark II whilst juggling getting wrecked and taking straight shots. Highlights for me were Rustie, Daedelus, Four Tet, Mary Anne Hobbs, Jamie XX, LFO (incredible sound responsive light set up, video here) and Kenny Ken with Top Cat!

I met many MANY lovely people and got to do some really close photography off stage with a few of them. Daedelus in particular was super cool and generally a great guy, also after a quick shoot he then went on to tear the roof off with his set. Aphex Twin on the other hand….difficult man.

All in all, it was exhausting and took me a week to recover but couldn’t have been more fun.

The photos will be up on the Bloc site soon but here is a small preview of some of the shots I got. Check out the Bloc site, designed by the one and only Give Up Art.

See you there next year!
