MTV Announces Bloc Party

11 December 2012

This morning, MTV announced 'MTV Bloc Party'. A two day festival which from 18-19 January will provide Mumbaikars with a city wide selection of events all accessible under one banner (and one ticket).

While the main venue for the string of events will be Juhu Hotel, Mumbai will also come alive at night to host 'Night Bloc', a selection of 3 events spread out across the city.

Programmed by Submerge, the line up is well, as expected tailored more towards artists who represent genres such as house, techno and trance. The one surprise booking on a brief glance at the line up however is glitch-hop wonder kid Opiuo.

It's no secret that glitch-hop is one of the fastest rising genres in India and many other countries across the globe. With domestic artists' productions gradually incorporating more of its influences within their work, as well as superstars within the genre such as Koan Sound visiting India to tour, Opiuo comes as a welcome booking.

Other artists on the line up include Alesso, Deniz Koyu, Cosmo Klein, Jean Elan, Simon Dunmore, Pearl, Arjun Vagale, Lost Stories and BREED just to name a few.

Event details as they stand can be seen below:

18 January 2013
1) Juhu Hotel - 5pm to 10pm
2) Night Bloc across 3 venues: 10pm to 1am

19 January 2013:
1) Juhu Hotel - 2pm to 10pm
2) Night Bloc across 3 venues: 10pm to 1am

"What if you had an all access pass to a bloc of incredible sound? What if you had an all access pass to the party of a lifetime? Prepare to be mesmerised by the brilliance of music, lights, glitz and one bloc. Multiple experiences." - MTV Bloc Party
