    Default Daft Punk Alive 2017

    Let the speculation begin

    Alive 2017 has been a topic of debate in Daft Punk fandom world for quite some time. Alive 1997 and Alive 2007 are Daft Punk’s two live albums that featured performances of songs from Homework, Discovery, and Human After All. Since both albums were released exactly 10 years apart, fans have speculated that Alive 2017 could be next.

    Since Alive 2007, the duo has been busy, scoring the movie Tron: Legacy, and releasing their Grammy-winning album Random Access Memories.. They worked on Kanye West’s Yeezus, Pharrell’s G I R L, and most recently produced The Weeknd’s new single “Starboy”.

    Recently, a Reddit user unveiled the link to a mysterious new website—alive2017.com. Could it be the beginning of a new chapter of the Daft Punk story?

    Here’s what the site looks like on the surface:

    But when you zoom in, some hidden numbers appear:

    Here’s where things gets interesting. Thanks to the help of posts on Reddit and tumblr, some theories are starting to emerge. The answers may lie in the source code of the website, which has remained unchanged since the site launched:


    Let’s take a look at that block of code on the left. These eight strings of numbers are in fact coordinates for:

    Paris (48 51 24 2 21 03)
    Los Angeles (34 03 118 15)
    London (51 30 26 N 0 7 39)
    New York (40 7128 74 0059)
    Tokyo (35 6895 139 6917)
    Sao Paulo (23 5505 46 6333)
    Ibiza (39 0200 1 4821)
    Indio (33 7206 116 2156)


    Could they be potential tour locations?

    Meanwhile, the block on the right says “RA 0h 42m 44s Dec 41 16 9”. These are also coordinates, but not on Earth. They’re celestial coordinates, pointing towards the galaxy Andromeda. But why is it there?

    Next, let’s skip ahead to the bottom right, where it says “//SHEP LOGGED OUT.” Shep is a character from Daft Punk’s musical movie Interstella 5555.

    And, finally, back to those numbers at the start. At line 90 of the source code, it says, “WAKE DATE 2016-10-27.” Those numbers in the I of “ALIVE” are a countdown timer, which finishes on October 27, 2016—exactly a month from when the site went online.

    Is Alive 2017 coming? Will it feature music performed over the years at these locations? Or is Daft Punk going on tour to record Alive 2017? Is this all an elaborate hoax? We’ve got a few more weeks until we know for sure—but we reached out to their management for comment.

    100% put together by a fan. If they were playing Coachella, then that would be the first date announced. The others would come later, so listing all those other city coordinates is a tell. As is Los Angeles, because we know there wouldn't be an LA show right away, if ever.

    so... the instagram account official_daftpunk, which is not linked to from daftpunk.com or their facebook site, or even randomaccessmemories.com, but has been posting since may 2013 and has 89k followers, has now posted an image of this Alive website.

    They only added it after the website was publicized. Two cons, one long.

    I'm surprised this hasn't been denied yet. surely their management is aware of this by now.

    I'm sure the robots just don't give a shit. The fact that they rarely release albums/music and they still have an insane hype behind them. Haven't toured in 10 years (give or take) and are still the most demanded/hyped artists is probably great for them. They make a mass living off producing others music and selling merch. When they played Get Lucky at Coachella on the screens the crowd was about to spontaneously combust.

    I'd imagine if they announced Coachella as their first date of touring, that'll be the fastest sell out in Coachella history, no?

    I guess in January it would be hell. I wonder how the after market tickets would be. Would they sell a lot for an insane pay increase for the demand? or would it be very hard to get passes due to no one wanting to miss the show?

    No. Coachella is, for all intents and purposes, an "instant sell out", not in the literal sense, but in the sense that there are far more people trying to get tickets than there are tickets available. It only takes 30mins-1 hour to sell out because the ticketing platform lets a constant amount of people in from the waiting room, rather than letting everyone flood in and crash the site.

    They would not jack up ticket prices more than the average yearly price increase, give or take an extra couple percents.

    Honest question since you guys won't shut the fuck up about Daft Punk, who's a bigger pull, them or Beyoncé?

    It would be Beyoncé, if not for the fact that Daft Punk hasn't performed outside of the Grammys in a decade. In this universe, 100% Daft Punk.
