People going to Dismaland for its final night of music tomorrow (Friday) will be refused entry if their face is not covered – with Banksy himself rumoured to attend.

Banksy’s exhibition, at the Tropicana in Weston-super-Mare, is due to end on Sunday, but a final night of entertainment will take place tomorrow.

Earlier this week a message on the bemusement park’s official website asked visitors to wear a mask, to prevent Banksy being caught on camera by lurking paparazzi.

But now a new message has been published on the website, it says: “Please be aware that you will be refused entry to the park if your face is not covered.”

Pussy Riot, Kate Tempest, De La Soul, Leftfield and others are due to perform under the glow of ‘crap fireworks’.

Musical giants Massive Attack were due to perform, but pulled out less than a week ago due to ‘technical issues’.
