In the continuing fallout from Friday’s cancelled festival, Bloc has issued another statement.
After addressing the issue of refunds, Bloc has launched an investigation into exactly what happened Friday night. Attendees are being urged to share comments via email. The statement, posted on Facebook, reads:
“We wanted to reiterate that we have launched an investigation into the events of Friday night. To that end we have opened an email address to which we would like you to submit any information you think may be relevant. We are keen to hear from you so we can build the most accurate picture and report of what happened. As ever, you guys are at the heart of what we do so please drop us a line with any comments on firstname.lastname@example.org
Our primary concern has always been the safety and enjoyment of those attending Bloc. This is why we acted swiftly on the advice of our health and safety team who were on site on Friday evening. It was a decision that saddened the crew who have staged this festival with great success over many years.
However, the safety of those attending is our paramount concern at all times. As we have previously said, our heartfelt thanks go out to all involved in the peaceful and safe evacuation.
We would also like to make it clear that we are deeply sorry for all of the frustration and disappointment this situation has caused all of you. No one is more gutted about it than us.
Please do continue to check the site, our facebook page and follow us on twitter for further updates including information on refunds.
