A SURPRISE guest entertained visitors to Banksy’s Dismaland during its first evening of entertainment.

Visitors arrived at Weston-super-Mare’s Tropicana expecting to see Peanut Butter Wold, DJ Yoda and Breakbeat Lou.

But they were in for an added treat when hip hop artist Mos Def performed, dressed in a pink high-vis jacket identical to those worn by Dismaland’s downbeat stewards.

Mos Def is an American rapper and has been nominated for several Grammy awards.

The next entertainment evening will be tomorrow (Friday) where Run The Jewels and DJ Dapper Dan will perform.

This will be followed by a comedy night, featuring Katherine Ryan, Roger Monkhouse and Simon Munnery on September 11.

Acclaimed Bristol band Massive Attack will perform on September 25.
