Hip-hop legends De La Soul, Detroit MC Danny Brown, and dancehall star Popcaan will join Gorillaz to play their inaugural Demon Dayz festival on June 10. It's set to take place in Margate, England at the Dreamland amusement park, and it will be broadcast live by Red Bull TV.

Vince Staples, Little Simz, Kali Uchis, Kilo Kish, Hall by the Sea, and Fufanu are the other artists set to play across the event's three stages. Gorillaz Sound System will also make an appearance, a four-person project including a DJ, drummer, percussionist, and visual director.

In an interview with Q Magazine last month, Damon Albarn revealed that Gorillaz would also take Demon Dayz to Chicago, although he did not provide further details about the timing or lineup.

Demon Dayz patrons will also be given access to Dreamland's 22 rides.

Gorillaz released their new album Humanz on April 28.

Tickets for the festival are available on its website.
