Looking forward to this!

Anyone know the size of the gig? Dreamland's otherwise excellent website isn't clear on the capacity of a whole venue event...

Lets hope that the new music measures up to having their own mini festival. Their appearance at Glasto 2010 was a bit of a let down after Blur's in 2009, but I guess that's what happens sometimes when you have a huge crowd watching you headline who haven't paid specifically to watch you. I think it will need to have the music and Jamie's magic to make this work.

The plan at this stage is to bring familiarity to the festival.

Rehearsals have not yet commenced but the idea is a hit driven exploration of the back catalogue. The new material will be a fine accompaniment to the familiar Gorillaz sound without alienating the audience.

Hi Anna - sounds like you're involved in this? In which case, glad to have you aboard :)
without breaching any confidences, can you tell us any more?

The band are not keen to use prerecorded vocal track's but when showcasing the new material, this unfortunately will be the case, particularly as there are tracks that the band are eager to debut from the new LP. However, the absence of some guest vocalists from albums have what we call 'deputies' who bring energy to the live versions and make it their own. Unfortunately there is not much to say at the moment but I'd suggest watching instagram accounts of some key personnel. Sorry, I'm not Damon.

hmmm, been following the "key personal" account for a while, so I'm confused about the rehearsal bit from Anna, since they been rehearsing at 13 for several weeks

The gigs themselves have not been rehearsed yet. I do not control external social media sites but I'd not lose faith. I dont wish to antagonise, hope you all enjoy the new LP.
