Also confirmed is Green Velvet, the house DJ famed for his hit 'La La Land' as well as for some more quirky and experimental tracks, and Russell Howard, who will play the Cocodisco arena.
BLOC has five arenas in total, ensuring there will always be something to which festivalgoers will want to listen or dance.
There are also two large stages, a pub warm-up stage, an Un:BLOC stage for non-electronic music, and an interactive arts arena.
Weekend ticket prices start at £125 plus a £5 booking fee, and festivalgoers must book rooms as self-catering or room-only apartments in groups of two, three, four, five, or six – seven-berth apartments have already sold out.
