Gorillaz Announce Support Acts for 2017 Demon Dayz Festival
Not to be outdone on this year’s festival season, Gorillaz have just announced the support line-up for their one-day Demon Dayz festival, which takes place on Saturday, June 10th.
Anyone who knows the Gorillaz material will know how effectively they manage to infuse multiple genres such as rock, rap, hip-hop, and indie to a wonderfully mellifluous effect. Their sound is distinctive and pretty ‘out there’, so it makes sense that they would be inviting some top acts down to be wingmen at their festival this year.
Obviously, Gorillaz themselves will be performing, and many of the artists who appeared on their latest album, Humanz, will be there in full effect to assist the crew with their venture. Support acts on the Demon Dayz Main Stage include Vince Staples, De La Soul (who hopefully won’t be leaving Potholes in any of the Margate residents’ lawns), and Fufanu.
The Hall by the Sea stage will play host to some hip-hop and rap luminaries, including the Black Brad Pitt himself, Danny Brown, Kali Uchis, Popcaan, Kilo Kush, and Little Simz. The line-up is rounded off nicely with a third stage, which features several DJ acts and the Gorillaz Soundsystem, so expect sum ruff-it-up bizniz from that stage on the day.
Punters are warned that they will not be able to park ANYWHERE in Margate on the day of the festival, and they do so at their own peril as the parking bobbies will be out in full force throwing tickets on windscreens with gay abandon. Just use the park and ride, you know it makes sense.
Demon Dayz Festival takes place on June 10 2017 at Dreamland Margate, Kent.
