East London's Bloc Festival has been cancelled after the opening night, Friday 6 July 2012, descended into chaos - with attendees speaking of dangerous conditions as the event was shut down.
Organisers of the event have now confirmed that Bloc.2012 will not re-open today as scheduled in a post on their website, but promised ticket holders will receive refunds.
"By now everyone will have heard that Bloc 2012 was closed due to crowd safety concerns," says an official statement. "We are all absolutely devastated that this happened, but the safety of everyone on site was paramount. Given the situation on the ground, we feel that it was the right decision to end the show early.
"Bloc will not open on Saturday 7th July so please don’t come to the site. Stand by for full information on refunds."
The event was taking place at London's Pleasure Gardens, a 60,000 square-meter venue in East London. Snoop Dogg and Orbital were due to headline the event.
Attendees took to Twitter to speak of their disgust at the arrangements of the event in the early hours of Saturday morning.
"Bloc is um a disaster right now. We're in the middle of a car crash," tweeted on angry attendee.
Another spoke of dangerous conditions at the event, tweeting: "Scary, and very nearly led to injuries; all we were told was 'move back' – where to exactly?"
A writer for Gigwise was attending the event - likening it to a riot. He states over 1,000 people were left outside the venue, with no one able to get in to see any of the bands - suggesting too many people hard turned up to this year's event.
