Demon Dayz festival at Dreamland

Road closures will be put in place during the Demon Dayz festival at Dreamland next weekend.

The event, which sold out in under an hour, is expected to attract some 15,000 people.

MOBO award-winning rapper Kano will make a guest appearance at the festival being held on June 10.


The Grime artist who was shortlisted for the 2016 Mercury Prize, will be on the main stage for the first Gorillaz UK concert in seven years alongside Vince Staples, De La Soul and Fufanu.

Acts will also take to the Hall By The Sea and a third stage.

The park will be closed to the public, other than festival-goers, on Saturday and also on Sunday (June 11) while the site is tidied up.

The Octopus’s Garden will be open as normal on Sunday (9am to 6pm) and the Roller Disco will be open for skating from 2pm. Access to these areas on Sunday 11th June will be via the entrance on Hall By The Sea Road. Parking will be available at the Arlington Car Park.

The line up

Curated by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett


Vince Staples

This Long Beach rapper broke back in 2015 with his brilliant Def Jam debut Summertime ’06. He appears on the Humanz track Ascension

De La Soul

Gorillaz and De La Soul go back years – Damon and co recruited the New York hip-hop trio to guest on Feel Good Inc., the first single off of 2005’s Demon Days, and they’ve also appeared on Plastic Beach and Humanz.


Damon Albarn has long had love for Iceland – he lived there for a period in the 1990s, and even part-owns a bar in Reykjavik, Kaffibarinn. He’s also been a champion of this young Icelandic post-punk band, who released their second album, the Nick Zinner-produced Sports, on One Little Indian in February.


Danny Brown

Detroit rapper Danny Brown has an eccentric, off-beat MC style  and he can be heard alongside Kelela on Humanz track Submission.

Little Simz

London-born rapper Simbi Ajikawo  has reportedly recorded a collaboration with Gorillaz, which is yet to see the light of day.

Kali Uchis

Born in Pereira, Colombia but now based in LA, Kali Uchis is an extremely cool singer-songwriter with two mixtapes – 2012’s Drunken Babble and 2015’s Por Vida – to her name.
