After dropping their anticipated collaboration “Starboy” with The Weeknd this week, Daft Punk are once again grabbing our attention as an alleged lineup poster for Lollapalooza Chile hints at their slot as headliners at the upcoming festival.
If the flyer is accurate, Lollapalooza Chile will feature an eclectic roster filled to the brim with major talent. In addition to Daft Punk’s place on the lineup, the list also includes heavy weights like Radiohead, Metallica, The Strokes, The Weeknd, Ellie Goulding and Jane’s Addiction. A number of other dance artists appear as well, including Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Lindsey Stirling.
The lineup poster has led to some speculation regarding Daft Punk’s touring schedule, which tend to only run on years ending in seven. The robotic duo’s first tour went down in 1997, and the next wouldn’t come until ten years later in 2007. If there’s an intentional pattern to this, then logically we could expect the French house pioneers to hit the road again next year.
There’s no telling at this point if the leaked flyer is a legitimate preview of Lollapalooza Chile’s lineup, so don’t get too excited just yet. Still, the prospect of Daft Punk hitting the performance circuit again would be a dream come true for fans.
