Gorillaz have come back full force over the last two years. The animated supergroup lead by none other than singer/songwriter legend Damon Albarn released ‘Humanz' last year and the album was immediately met with widespread approval from both fans and critics alike. Gorillaz than enjoyed a tour which spanned 5 continents and went for nearly a year.
After only a month of silence from the group, a viral marketing campaign during ‘Big Day Out' in London announced that Gorillaz would be dropping their new album The Now Now in the end of June. Last week we got two singles from the group as well as tour dates.
Many excited fans were quick to notice that among the tour dates included a Demon Dayz festival in Los Angeles to wrap things up. This is exciting for a few reasons. 1 – Demon Dayz would be returning after it's initial event thrown last year in London. And 2 – it is officially a traveling festival and would appear in America for the first time ever.
Demon Dayz 2018 Line Up
Taking place in Los Angeles on October 20th the event has announced its initial line up. After last year's line up including Vince Staples as well as Danny Brown, fans had high hopes that the 2018 edition would live up to the hype. It certainly did.
Demon Dayz 2018 features hip-hop LEGEND Erykah Badu, The Internet, DRAM and many more. The festival is going to be a wild one for sure. Tickets are on sale currently for Amex cardholders and will be available to the general public on June 8th here.
