Demon Dayz with Gorillaz
The sun beamed down on the debut of the Gorillaz one-day festival Demon Dayz at the newly-refurbished Dreamland in Margate last weekend. It was a pleasure to join the Red Bull TV team as they broadcast across two stages straight from the festival to the rest of the world.
Curated by Gorillaz founders Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, Saturday’s billing was studded by the names and faces who collaborated on their acclaimed new album Humanz (an impressive roll call which featured De La Soul, Little Sims, Popcaan, Vince Staples, Kelela and more).
Our favourite sets of the day? Asides from the Gorillaz main-stage performance (a show which saw everyone from Zebra Katz and Kano to Damon’s old band mate Graham Coxon and Savages’ Jehnny Beth make appearances), stand-out sessions included a crystal-clad Kali Uchis who’s soulful pop brought the sunshine indoors of the Red Bull’s Hall By The Sea stage and a sweaty 45 minutes from fan-favourite of the day Danny Brown.
