If there’s one thing we can count on from the Daft Punk rumor mill, it’s that any juicy piece of gossip will always immediately be followed by its exact opposite.
Case in point: Bestival organizer Rob da Bank claims he’s got the scoop from people in the know about Daft Punk’s tour plans. “There’s all kinds of crazy rumours flying about at the moment about Daft Punk at Coachella, and The Rolling Stones playing Glastonbury. We got told months ago that Daft Punk were definitely not touring next year, but it keeps the rumour mill going.”
After this quote picked up steam online, Rob tweeted the following:
id take it with a large pinch of salt…i dont even think Daft Punk know whether theyre touring next year! dont shoot the messenger

Dear Daft Punk: You could easily end all of these rumors. Just please, please tell us what your plans are for 2013. Don’t make us beg.
The DJZ/10 is a collection of ten DJs that we think you should know about now. Some of them are already familiar to you, others you may have never heard of. The list is not based on (1) a secret computer algorithm, (2) social media popularity, or (3) payola. Every month or so we get together to decide if somebody from the broader A…Z directory is about to break out and should be included in the DJZ/10, or if somebody already on the list, for that matter, is “phoning it in” and deserved to be replaced by another DJ who is more worthy.×
