I have tickets for Demon Dayz and I resisted listening to the leaks. So excited for this, especially after the Plastic Beach gig I was supposed to go to was cancelled.

Goons should I preorder for that sweet sweet secret gig raffle? I'd also have to get down to London.

So did anyone win tickets to tonight's secret gig?

I talked myself out of pre-ordering on their website at the last second. So many regrets.

Ticket announcement is at 12pm today. There was a form hidden at the bottom of the page to sign up for the ballot even if you didn't buy the record.

loving hell that was good. Damon was going crazy, the crowd was loving every song. One song was played twice back to back because he crowd was screaming rewind so loudly. Noel Gallagher turned up.

Set list (I think) was entirety of Humanz, encore, Kid With Guns, Feel Good, Clint, encore, last 3 songs of Demon Days.

Cardboard VR things and commemorative tickets were given out.



So pumped for the album release.

Telekom have released a proper recording of Ascension at Printworks, with strong hints that other songs will follow. Bit of a weird first choice since Vince Staples couldn't make the gig.

Set was great. Little Sims was insane. I was not expecting Ryder to be back ever again so that was a surprise.

Shoutout to the two women pretending they'd lost their son to push into the crowd, then punch a guy when he overheard them laughing about the lie

HOLY gently caress THAT WAS AMAZING! I was just about 3 rows back from the centre front row and everyone went loving MENTAL when Damon and the band kicked off! He even went right up to the crowd twice and then Jenny crowd-surfed a bit (even though I don't think that's allowed anymore).

It was great to hear Tomorrow Comes Today live again, though I wish they'd play M1A1 too. I was VERY surprised they played Out of Body live, that's one of my fav songs on the album and it was funky and all. When they went and played Dare and Momentz, the whole crowd was jumping like crazy, especially when Bootie Brown showed up out of nowhere for Dirty Harry!

I'm a little bit annoyed they played Sex Murder Party although I guess they made it slightly better live, still doesn't save it from being their worst song, also I bet they'd play Hallelujah Money but surprisingly they didn't.

Bit disappointed they didn't bring back Del for Clint Eastwood again, but they made up for it with most of the setlist.
-
As for the other acts, I was a bit late to see De La Soul's act but they knew how to work the crowd and played some good tracks, loved them for it.

Kilo Kish was the first act I saw that day and umm...well I guess Damon's daughter probably liked it, I guess it's hard to explain her 'act' because it was half singing and half performance art, and if that IS her gimmick then okay but still...eh.

I will not understand why Kano for some reason gets a headline act, this does not make sense to me. The other headliners obviously did more collabs with Gorillaz but Kano did [b]ONE SONG[/b[, White Flag (with Bashy), and that's it...and he didn't even play that again live. How he's still touring with Damon and the crew is just baffling.

Oh and The Shapeshifters were jamming in the roller disco, didn't expect that but drat it was cool.
-
I don't think Damon and Jamie will ever do another festival like this again, I loved it and I'm missing it already...I might go back to Dreamland for the arcade though.


Wait really? Were they trying to get into the front row?


My group was in the very middle roughly equal distance between the stage and the mixdesk. I had done near front at Printworks and my friends were suffering from sunburn so we didn't get to the main stage until midway through Kano and didn't want to push forwards. The women stopped moving forwards just after us. Very weird.

If I had drank more I could have happily spent most the day in the roller disco. That was very cool. The setup in the Sea stage seemed sadly a big poo poo though.

I was probably near the very back (we never got further forward than the merch tent/mixdesk), and it was still an utterly amazing show. So glad I went, and glad that was my first live performance.

Yeah they put on a hell of a show and all the guests were putting their hearts into each song.

I think Humanz is more consistent than Demon Days I am definitely biased though after seeing the album at Printworks.

Great show in Manchester. Wish my friends had come down for the London show rather than vice versa but Iím just happy Iíve actually seen the band a few times now. Kids with Guns is so good live.
