The festival website efestivals.co.uk have released a statement explaining that they have “well-sourced information” that the robots will be back in 2017. Supposedly the French duo will be headlining the mega festival in the UK, Glastonbury, with their legendary pyramid stage. The statement they went live with today states:
“eFestivals currently believes that next year Radiohead will be given that opportunity to headline on Saturday. We also strongly believe The Stone Roses are the front runners to top the bill on Sunday, and while we are less certain on the third headlining act, we have had what should be well-sourced information several months ago, that it’s supposedly Daft Punk topping the bill on the Friday.”
This adds an element of legitimacy to the rumors spiraling around Facebook and Reddit the last few weeks. The Alive 2017 website with cryptic information, collaborations with The Weeknd, and (now determined to be) faux Lollapolloza Chile posters have swept the collective dance music community into a frenzy of speculation.
The question no remains if Daft Punk will officially address this storm of rumors or slowly but surely the internet community will continue to get to the bottom of each and every new piece of information. Let's take a look back at the last time Daft Punk toured.
