    On Saturday, Gorillaz staged their Demon Dayz Festival in Los Angeles. Following sets from Erykah Badu, The Internet, DRAM, and Kilo Kish earlier in the day, Gorillaz themselves took the stage for an epic 30-song headlining performance.

    Throughout the evening, Gorillaz were joined by a cavalcade of special guests, including De La Soul, DRAM, Little Simz, and Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. What’s more, legendary jazz guitarist George Benson shared the stage with Gorillaz for the first time to perform “Humility”, their collaboration off The Now Now. And toward the end of the evening, Damon Albarn brought out his Blur bandmate Graham Coxon to perform the Blur classic, “Song 2”. “We’re going to try a bit of cross pollination,” Albarn remarked before bringing out Coxon.
