Before the Gorillaz dropped their long awaited fifth album Humanz, the group revealed plans for their own London festival dubbed Demon Dayz. Now, the lineup for the upcoming festival has been revealed.
In a new video posted by the virtual group, they announced the lineup featuring De La Soul, Danny Brown, Vince Staples, Popcaan and Kali Uchis. All artists on the bill also appear on the band's latest album. Others on the bill include Fufanu, Little Simz and Kilo Kish.
Notably missing are collaborators Pusha T, Mavis Staples, Noel Gallagher and D.R.A.M. At this time, it's not clear whether or not they'll participate in the festival. So far, this lineup is far from having the full list of collaborators for the event, which Damon Albarn mentioned during a March gig.
The festival will include three stages: the main stage, a local venue called Hall By the Sea and a third stage for GSS Sound System, the Gorillaz DJ team. The entire festival will be streamed live on Redbull.TV.
In an exclusive interview with Q Magazine, Albarn expressed interest in bringing the Demon Dayz festival to Chicago.
