AEG Presents / Goldenvoice today announces the launch of Demon Dayz – a one-day festival extravaganza curated by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett – which will debut at Dreamland amusement park in Margate on Saturday 10th June, 2017, this year featuring Gorillaz in the headline slot.
With three stages and an eclectic line-up to be announced soon, plus free admission to the amusement park, Demon Dayz marks Gorillaz’ welcome return to the live stage, their first UK show since the sold out Plastic Beach World Tour of 2010.
For its inaugural year, Demon Dayz has joined creative forces with Red Bull. This collaboration will see the festival broadcast live and exclusively to the world through Red Bull TV.
Gorillaz are 2D (vocals), Noodle (guitar), Russel Hobbs (drums) and Murdoc Niccals (bass).
With four acclaimed albums to their name – Gorillaz (2001), Demon Dayz (2005), Plastic Beach (2010), The Fall (2011) – the band made their much-anticipated live debut at Coachella Festival in 2010, an outing described by Q Magazine as “a spectacular (5 star) show”, ahead of festival appearances at Glastonbury, Roskilde, Benicassim and Byblos in Beirut. Also that year, Gorillaz travelled the world with the Escape To Plastic Beach Tour and become the first major Western band to perform in Syria when they played the ancient Citadel in Damascus.
