Last year, NME hailed a Daft Punk tribute band as among the greatest things on offer at Wilderness Festival.

“The five piece do not look like your typical rock stars. There is one Daft Punk helmet (it might actually be a Star Wars helmet) occasionally passed around the band, and Daft Punk music videos on the projector. Close your eyes to the Jeremy Clarkson jeans, throw in some helmets, and you’d really believe you were watching the real thing”, NME’s official verdict stated.
