Damon Albarn makes surprise appearance at Banksy’s ‘Dismaland’ – watch

De La Soul and Pussy Riot also performed, as Massive Attack were forced to cancel

Blur frontman Damon Albarn made a surprise appearance at the final gig of Dismaland, Banksy’s Disney-inspired ‘bemusement park’.

The show took place at Tropicana in Weston-super-Mare, where Dismaland is based. The park boasts 18 attractions including work from Banksy himself, as well as artists including artists Damien Hirst, Jenny Holzer and Jimmy Cauty.

Musical acts have performed on every Friday night since the park opened with the likes of Run The Jewels, Savages and more playing earlier in the run.

Massive Attack were due to headline the last night of Dismaland but were forced to pull out. In their absence, De La Soul performed, with Albarn joining the group for a rendition of Gorillaz track ‘Feel Good Inc’.

Russian activist punk group Pussy Riot also performed to a backdrop of protestors and riot police clashing, entering the stage in a cage.
