The renowned and mysterious street artist known as Banksy always deserves our attention due to his innovative and socially evocative art pieces that force us to think differently about our daily lives. He's getting ready to open his disturbing, yet equally brilliant, theme park Dismaland on August 22nd and we have some photos to give you a sneak peak.

Also featuring art by Damien Hirst and Jimmy Cauty, the park is a dreary take on Disneyland with hallucinatory and inventive sculptures reminiscent of the classic theme park, only this one isn't quite as bubbly and cartoonish. It's typical Banksy to go and flip the script on a popular brand and this time he's not holding anything back.

The art pieces are not just the only attraction at the park but there will also be special performances every Friday while Dismaland is open from August 22nd to September 27th. Featuring Massive Attack, DJ Yoda, Kate Tempest, Run The Jewels, Pussy Riot and Peanut Butter Wolf among others, there will be plenty of time to hop in the dance and be a bit more cheerful.

View the music lineup below along with more photos of Dismaland. Tickets are £3 and free for children under 5 years old.
