Demon Dayz fest presented a range of cartoon characters and music stars together on Saturday night at Pico Rivera in Los Angeles.

The Damon Albarn-powered Gorillaz event was not short on star power. George Benson, De La Soul, and Damon Albarn’s Blur partner in Blur, Graham Coxon, came on for the famous “Song 2.”
