This Coachella lineup of AI generated artist names is outrageous
Each year, a plethora of fake Coachella lineups circulate the internet. Reddit users and trolls of the deep web come together in an effort to dupe the masses, get a good laugh, or ultimately just embody a looming existential crisis vis-à-vis the curatorial form.
The latest pseudo-Coachella lineup poster, generated by AI community Botnik Studios, has to be one of the most unique lineups we’ve seen yet.
The online collective unveiled their very own Coachella 2018 poster comprised of entirely made-up monikers generated by a “neural network,” trained to analyze the names of existing musical acts, and the final result is pretty outrageous.
Botnik’s boasts headliners like Fanch, One of Pig, and Lil Hack, as well as what we think would be solid EDM mainstays like Fistopia, Maja, Thou Bald Lungo, Man Mist, Slup, Jonathan Is High, and Skin Clump. While these artists are in reality 100 percent fictional, we can imagine an alternate universe where some of the utterly outrageous acts could rule the world, and that’s pretty sick.
