    Rx Bandits, Portugal. the Man - two of my favorite bands to start the day, Girls, Beach House, the Raveonettes, The xx, Hot Chip(who were probably my favorite of the weekend), some of Faith No More, Muse, the Dead Weather, and 2 Many DJs. Loved them all.

    Exhibit A:


    Is that clear enough for you or do you need diagrams, pie charts, and definitions?
    Does it bother you that Daft Punk fans from the Homework era are more appreciative of their work AND respect the pioneers that helped influence them than the majority of the teeny-bopper post-Discovery fans who can't name a single fucking track off of Homework other than Around the World?

    Besides, I don't think any DP fan from the Homework era wore skinny jeans or wore black rimmed lensless glasses to begin with, try again moron. The average post-Discovery DP fan don't even know who DJ Sneak is and are likely to cite Afrojack and Deadmau5 as one of their favorite artists, thereby lumping them with DP.

    Homework-era fans don't shit on the foundations of the scene like the majority of the post-Discovery fans do. Sorry if that's a tough pill to swallow for you.

    Homework sucked. Frankly, it all sucked until they mixed all their songs together into one big long set with a giant spaceship. Sorry guys.

    You seem to be forgetting though, hipsters would have hated Daft Punk before it was cool.

    The last tour was nearly 6 years ago (from Coachella 2013), and, fest appearances aside, hit only a few US cities and nothing larger than 10K except for the LA Sports Arena, where they sold just over 13K tickets. That's well below the level of headliners like Muse, who are playing 2 nights each at Staples and MSG, or even non-headliners like Swedish House Mafia (2 nights at the 30K-capacity Historic Park, 1 at MSG and 3 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn). Has the EDM explosion created more of an audience for them? Quite possibly, but I'd say it's created more of a potential audience; I'm not at all sure that the kids who listen to SHM and Skrillex care let alone even really know them. They'll probably headline some year soon, but first they need to put out their first non-soundtrack record in at least 8 years.

    The Sports Arena show sold out in about an hour, without a new album to support, based on hype from one performance that probably 8000 people saw a year before.
    Had they played a larger capacity venue in Los Angeles the number would have been much higher obviously.
    The hype has done nothing but grow. Everyone knows who they are now.
    They could easily fill Staples if they announced dates there today.

    Pro tip: People* will be more inclined to buy the other bullshit you're selling if you refrain from absurd bullshit like this.

    If you say so, guy. I'm looking at actual things that actually happened, not imaginary things that you think could happen.

    Well, dude, I mean it's silly to say that they can't headline festivals. They headlined a bunch of festivals.

    Yeah, it would be silly to say that, which is why I didn't; I only said that I think they need to get back in the game a bit before they headline one particular festival, Coachella, which isn't going to happen in time for 2013, when they aren't headlining anyway.

    Btw, the only US festivals they've headlined were Lollapalooza '07, at which they took a slot held the previous year by Ween, and second-tier Vegoose '07 (half the size of Coachella) and Bang Music Festival '06 (alongside such top headliners as Modest Mouse and Duran Duran). The year prior they subbed at Coachella on the strength of a record that, live and soundtrack work aside, they have yet to follow-up.

    Ultra as well, although I agree that I wouldn't really count that. But seriously, it's a silly argument to make. At each of those festivals people lost their fucking minds at what they saw. I didn't even like the bastards and what they did won me over completely, not just visually but musically as well. They have tremendous name recognition and now as a result of those shows they have a ton of recognition as a rare live act. I wasn't at Lolla but from what I heard the crowd was pretty thick, dude.

    So Mr Knows A Lot, who is the third headliner in this horrible nightmare timeline you're advocating?

    Seriously, let's hear about your third headliner. If you're gonna act like you know this lineup back and forth and its every little detail, then back it up and add some depth to what you're saying.

    Scarcity value plus the fact that EDM in general has blown the fuck up since DP last toured and elevated the entire genre in terms of fetsival draw, equals Daft Punk could headline any goddamn festival on earth right now, new material or not. Every festival worth a shit is going to throw an obligatory call to DP every year until they return, and will offer the moon (including a headline slot...not just the Tiesto/SHM late night closer slot) to get them.

    You're embarrassing yourself by completely misreading the Skrillex/SHM younger fan base as well. Most of them have heard of DP simply by word of mouth, and even the ones that haven't will queue up to see them just based on the mythological/legend status they now have (whether you think they deserve that status is another issue entirely).

    "the only US festivals"

    Other headliners of that UK festival include Keane, Kasabian, Kaiser Chiefs, Morrissey, Basement Jaxx, Black Eyed Peas, Chemical Brothers, Pulp, Deadmau5, and Drake.

    I'm 20 years old, and I can confirm this as truth. We've all known who Daft Punk is since we were in high school. We all know, at the very least, the song "One More Time" (which DJs played at our school dances). A lot of us are also familiar with the robot helmet image. Daft Punk are icons, "legends" as mrhand stated.

    Oh, you, average lineup-obsessed messageboarder, speak for the tens of thousands of know-nothings who only know SHM because they saw them at EDC, a brand they know, got it.
