I hung around the festival grounds for awhile after RHCP because I wasn't ready to leave yet and also wanted to avoid the crowds heading toward camp. I was there for maybe 45 minutes or so (not 100% sure how late it was) and then Daft Punk started playing loudly and everyone still out started running toward the Gobi, thinking Daft Punk was playing on stage. It turned out it was the hippos at the power station doing a dance show to Daft Punk. It was bizarre and random but also cool. Everyone in the crowd was questioning whether that actually was DP in hippo masks, but after they played two or three songs we all kind of collectively realized it wasn't and we were all kicked out by security lol.
I didn't see anyone mention it here. Did anyone else catch this show? I think between that and the new album ad, it seems like a set up for DP to play next year. But that could be wishful thinking. Maybe they're all just fucking with us.
