Daft Punk Headlining Coachella 2013? VEVO Page Hints at Surprise Appearance
Although Daft Punk weren’t among the numerous acts confirmed to perform at Coachella 2013 when the lineup was announced back in January, their record label has dropped hints that they’ll be the surprise headliner at this year’s fest. Execs at Universal Music Group, EMI and Sony Entertainment – the umbrella company for Daft Punk’s label, Columbia Records – made a post on the band’s official VEVO page suggesting their appearance.
The tour date that surfaced earlier this week indicates that the French electro-rockers will play Empire Polo Field in Indio, Calif., on April 12, which is the very same date and location of the annual music festival. Despite the fact that Daft Punk denied previous rumors about touring this year, with a new album on the horizon, it makes sense for them to showcase their music in such a well-attended live setting as Coachella.
Other acts on the stacked bill include the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Blur, Phoenix, the xx, the Stone Roses, Sigur Ros, the Postal Service, Band of Horses, Bat for Lashes, Action Bronson, Grimes, Hot Chip, Jake Bugg, Modest Mouse, New Order, Passion Pit, Pretty Lights, Savages, Tegan and Sara, Stars, TNGHT, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Metric, plus dozens more.
