Is it a theme park? An amusement park? No, it's a "bemusement park", apparently, called Dismaland. Orchestrated by Banksy and based at the site of a run-down old amusement park called Tropicana in Weston-super-Mare, Dismaland will be a music and art extravaganza, with 18 attractions on offer. Included in this mix is work from Banksy himself, as well as pieces from other artists such as Jenny Holzer, Jimmy Cauty and Damien Hirst.

The music side of things begins on 28th August with DJ Yoda, Peanut Butter Wolf and Breakbeat Lou, continuing through 4th September, when Run the Jewels will be performing, 18th (Savages, Sleaford Mods), finishing on 25th September with performances from Kate Tempest, Pussy Riot and Massive Attack. There'll also be a comedy night featuring Simon Munnery on 11th September.

In a very rare statement, Banksy himself said:

"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."
