Gorillaz Announce “Demon Dayz Festival,” Full Lineup TBA

This morning across their various social media accounts, the Gorillaz have revealed their very own festival. The Demon Dayz Festival will be held on June 10 of this year. The one day fest will be at the Dreamland Amusement Park in Margate, England. For us fans across the pond who can’t make it, don’t despair just yet. The festival will be streamed live via Red Bull TV.

Headlining their own festival and with a full lineup to be announced, this would mark the first live show of the virtual creations of Jamie Hewlett and Damon Albarn since 2010. For some time, Hewlett has been “leaking” character artwork and stories from the upcoming album, and on the eve of the U.S. presidential inauguration, an ominous video featuring Benjamin Clementine was dropped. With these sneak peeks into the next chapter of the Gorillaz, it only makes one wonder if this festival and its TBA lineup to be a further insight into their impending album.

That is if it doesn’t drop before then. Either way, 2017 is turning out to be the year of the Gorilla(z).
