Watch the trailer for Banksy's Dismaland

The park is open, and it looks wonderful.

Banksy's first art exhibition in six years, Dismaland - a twisted 'tribute' to the non-stop upbeat happiness of Disneyland - opened last week in Weston-super-Mare and, appropriately, its first week has witnessed a classic British summer of rain, rain and more rain.

The illusive artist has now released a macabre trailer for the exhibition, which features work by Damien Hirst, the KLF's Jimmy Cauty and David Shrigley and many others.

The video short offers tantalising glimpses of the work on display and has already attracted one of the most perceptive comments we've seen on YouTube for a while, with Kakto Tak saying, "Is it in UK? It's in UK, right? It can't be anywhere else. Nobody else could take the idea of being miserable as far as this."

Tickets for the first seven days, including the first Friday night gig with DJ Yoda and others, are already sold out, but later dates are still available. Head to the website to get involved and read a little more detail on the exhibit here.
