Can you spot Daft Punk on this ‘Where’s Waldo’ style festival map?
Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo are, by all accounts, two regular-looking individuals. Without their sequined YSL blazers and iconic robot helmets, the two frenchmen’s faces would be indistinguishable in a festival crowd. Some artists, including Daft Punk, have been famously known to secretly roam festival grounds, assimilating among the general attendees. Others, like Seth Troxler for instance, aren’t as subtle. Though, even as illustrations, Daft Punk are still proving to be just as elusive on this new Where’s Waldo-style map as they have been on the real festival circuit since 2007.
Illustrator Adam Carnegie has drawn up an imaginary festival Zion, mashing together landmarks from some of the world’s most recognizable events, from Tomorrowland to Lollapalooza. He’s then filled his electronic dance elysium with all of our favorite characters, from Major Lazer to deadmau5, and any almost everybody in between. Everyone from Disclosure to Sia are featured. The Gorillaz seem a lot more comfortable on a map where everyone else are cartoons too. But the Robots may be the hardest to spot of them all.
Daft Punk are carefully hidden among Yetis, dancing astronauts, and David Bowie darting across a laser beam. See if you can spot them.
