The dark Dismaland has been described by Banksy as a “family theme park unsuitable for children.”
Inside the “bemusment park” attractions include a pond with boats full of refugees, a decrepit Cinderella castle, a riot van fountain and a Grim Reaper dodgem which sees Death himself dancing to the Bee Gees classic track ‘Stayin’ Alive’ – all of which are staffed by suitably miserable, Mickey Mouse ear-wearing employees.
Dismaland is Banksy’s first UK exhibition since Banksy versus Bristol Museum in 2009 and features work by over 50 artists including Damien Hirst, as well as several pieces from Banksy himself.
Open for six weeks, every Friday evening plays host to live music.
And who better to make an appearance than Run the Jewels with their anti-establishment stance and no-holds-barred delivery. Ed Sheeran was never going to be invited to the political party, was he?
Watch Run The Jewels perform ‘A Xmas F*king Miracle’:
Other acts still to play the Western Super Mare exhibition include Sleaford Mods, Savages, Kate Tempest, Pussy Riot and Massive Attack.
