Huge boost for heritage park as it unveils its new 15,000-capacity arena

Gorillaz are to headline a majojr outdoor show at Margate’s Dreamland this summer - the first UK show for the band in seven years.

The group - spearheaded by Blur frontman Damon Albarn and artist Jamie Hewlett - will perform at the theme park on June 10.

They will headline Demon Dayz which will also include a full line-up of support acts - details of which have still to be confirmed.

It will be the first show at Dreamland’s new 15,000-capacity events arena.

Gorillaz last played in the UK as part of a world tour in 2010.

Rebecca Ellis, director of events at Dreamland Margate, said: “We’re really excited to be welcoming Demon Dayz and Gorillaz to the newly revamped park. As the first event we house on our newly created event site, this is set to be the gig of the summer.

“Visitors to Dreamland can expect the fun to start early on, with special tunes being played at the Roller Disco and some special celebratory food offerings from our food trucks in preparation for the night’s entertainment.”

Dreamland confirmed details of its 15,000-capacity venue last week as part of a £15 million investment in the park, which also includes a host of rides.

The venue is no stranger to the big names - back in the 1960s it showcased shows by the likes of The Rolling Stones and The Who at its Hall By The Sea venue.

Tickets are from £60 and include access to the amusement park, and are available from Friday, March 10, at 9am.
