Recently, Daft Punk has been in news for its upcoming music album Random Access Memories. Now the music duo is back in the news, suggesting that they won't perform at the Coachella Festival.
A Daft Punk representative said that the duo will not play at the festival in April after a single tour date appeared on their Vevo page, listing a show at the Empire Polo Field on April 12 in Indio, Calif.
Daft Punk is an electronic music duo consisting of French musicians Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter. The duo is quite popular in the music industry.
"The French electro duo were among the acts initially rumored to be a part of this year's festival, though they were not included when the lineup was announced. A slot at Coachella would have made sense for them as they gear up for the release of their long-awaited new studio album, Random Access Memories, out May 21st," reports Rolling Stone.
Daft Punk's Album, Random Access Memories, will hit music lovers in May this year. The 13-track full album is now available for pre-order on iTunes, while vinyl and CD copies can be pre-ordered through the group's new website for the album. Few details are known about the album, though disco legend Nile Rodgers will most likely appear on Random Access Memories.
Even without Daft Punk, Coachella Festival has already secured an impressive line-up with performances from Red Hot Chili Peppers, Blur, the Stone Roses and Phoenix, along with Lou Reed, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Wu-Tang Clan, the Postal Service and more.
If you are visiting the Coachella Festival, will you miss Daft Punk or you will still enjoy the performances by other music bands and artists?
