Gorillaz announce Demon Dayz festival line-up, vinyl box set with 14 new tracks
Vince Staples, Popcaan, and Little Simz will perform.
Last month, Pusha T shared that, after appearing on the new Gorillaz album HUMANZ, he would be joining the virtual band for “at least five” of their upcoming shows, including the four-piece’s very own music festival, Demon Dayz. Now, we finally have the show’s official lineup.
According to a video posted to Instagram by the band, along with the band themselves, the festival will see the likes of album guests Vince Staples, Danny Brown, Popcaan, Kali Uchis, and De La Soul take the stage.
Additionally, Fufanu, Hall by the Sea, Kilo Kish, and Little Simz will perform.
Little Simz will also make a guest appearance on the newly-announced “super deluxe vinyl box set” of HUMANZ. The super-sized edition features 14 individual vinyl records, each with one of the album’s original tracks on Side A, and a new “exclusive alternate version” on Side B.
The 14 new tracks are:
“Midnite Float (feat. Azekel)”
“Grilling With His Face”
“Charger (Alternative Version) (feat. Pauline Black)”
“Andromeda (D.R.A.M. Special)”
“Busted and Blue (Faia Younan Special)”
“Carnival (feat. Anthony Hamilton) [2D Special]”
“Five Whales In A Dream”
“Garage Palace (feat. Little Simz)”
“She’s My Collar (Kali Uchis Spanish Special)”
“Phoenix on the Hill (feat. Sidiki Diabate)”
Each vinyl is presented in a different color and in its own art-worked sleeve. The box set also includes a 54-page, cloth-bound, foil-blocked, hardback book of Gorillaz artwork. Priced at £274.99 (or about $355 USD), it is expected to be released August 25.
