PREVIEW: SIGN The petition to bring Daft Punk to EDC 2010
I know I know, I’m sure after reading this title the first thing that came to mind was “Oh yeah sure…” but read on and let it all marinate for a second…
Electric Daisy Carnival is a huge electronic dance music festival held at the USC stadium in L.A. every summer. Last year, EDC featured some of the biggest names in the electronic dance music genre such as Thievery Corporation, David Guetta and Boys Noize. According to the lovely World Wide Web, there is a possibility of Daft Punk playing EDC this year. Although Daft Punk has not performed live since the 2008 Grammys, the duo did state on their website that they will be playing a world tour in either 2010 or 2011. Could EDC be one of the stops on that tour? I think it is a great possibility.
If you are as psyched about this as I am, click the link above and sign the petition to bring Daft Punk to EDC 2010. It may be a ploy to sell more EDC tickets and I may be a complete idiot for believing Daft Punk would actually play a music festival but I signed the petition regardless. If nothing else it will get Daft Punk‘s attention and let them know the world is ready for the crazy, helmet-wearing team to start performing live again.
