Pharrell Williams has commented on speculation that Daft Punk could headline Coachella in the future.

Daft Punk famously headlined California’s Coachella Festival in 2006 and were rumoured to replace Beyonce at this year’s double weekend event. However, Lady Gaga eventually filled in for the pregnant singer.

Speaking on the latest episode of his OTHERtone Apple Beats 1 radio show, Pharrell was asked whether the duo – who he worked with on ‘Get Lucky’ – would play the festival again.

He replied: “I don’t know. The robots are, like… they’re not repeaters. Who knows, right? They traditionally don’t repeat. They like doing things that you don’t expect them to do and in ways that you don’t expect them to, and when you freak out, and you want more, and it’s like, ‘No.'”

Williams was speaking to Coachella founders Paul Tollet and Lou Adler. During the conversation, Tollet picked Daft Punk’s 2006 set as his favourite festival performance. “It was that good,” he said. “We knew it was going to be good, because they’ve always been great, but they’d never played with their helmets. It was just press photos from years before, and they had stopped playing, and everyone had in their head what it might be. You never saw it, and it was 100 times better than we dreamed. It was just insane. It felt like it was storyboard, Stanley Kubrick movie. Every minute must have been thought about for hours or days or whatever, and it got better every minute until the very end. It was like, ‘how can you even get better than the last 74 minutes?’ But it was. It was that good.”
