Banksy Launches “Bemusement park” Named Dismaland

Run The Jewels, DJ Yoda, Peanut Butter Wolf, and Pussy Riot among acts to perform

Banksy will celebrate the launch of his new Disney-themed “bemusement park” called Dismaland in Weston, England this month with a number of live performances. The show will begin on August 28, with DJ Yoda, Peanut Butter Wolf, and Breakbeat Lou.

Run the Jewels will be performing live on September 4, along with Savages and Sleaford Mods two weeks later.

The celebration will conclude with Pussy Riot, Kate Tempest, and Massive Attack. The Tropicana venue will house these acts, as well as feature showcases from Banksy, Damien Hirt, and several other artists.

A statement from Banksy:

“I loved the Tropicana as a kid, so getting to throw these doors open again is a real honour. I hope everyone from Weston will take the opportunity to once more stand in a puddle of murky water eating cold chips to the sound of crying children.”
