After their recent collaboration with Canadian R&B superstar The Weeknd, "Starboy," rumours of Daft Punk shows in 2017 have reignited once again following a Reddit discovery.

An eagle-eyed user discovered a page for the French duo on Lollapalooza's website, which was built in February, suggesting that they were booked to play the 2017 edition of the Chicago festival (via NME). They've also been tipped by many to headline Glastonbury next year, with their first and only performance at the UK festival coming 20 years ago.

While the duo have played one-off gigs in Baltimore in 2008 and at the Grammy Awards in 2014, their last full tour was in 2007. THUMP has reached out to Daft Punk and Lollapalooza for comment and will update this post with more information.
