It seems like Disney corporation has a thing for masked musicians these days. After the unbridled success of Tron: Legacy, for which Disney partnered with electronic musicians Daft Punk, the company is now acquiring the popular Deadmau5 (pronounced ‘dead mouse’) brand.
Well, the Ultra Phase 3 Lineup was released yesterday, and what a disappointment it was. Notably missing from the latest list of artists taking the stage at UMF are Daft Punk. (Not to mention Digitalism.) Despite rumors that the robotic duo would appear at Ultra to kick off a nationwide tour in support of their Tron: Legacy soundtrack, the final announcement came and went with no mention of Daft Punk. What the fuck?
