Gorillaz are hosting their own festival in Margate next month, and the full line-up for the bash has just been revealed.
Vince Staples, De La Soul, Danny Brown and more (aka pretty much the whole collaborators list from new album ‘Humanz’ are set to join the band at Dreamland on 10th June, with Little Simz, Popcaan and more also on board.
