David Guetta at Tomorrowland

Yesterday, Tom Petty was in the news because he said some not-so-nice things about the entire nature of the EDM festival: “Watch people play records? That’s stupid. You couldn’t pay me to go. I’m not oversimplifying it. That’s what’s going on. I don’t think it would be any fun without the drugs. It’s a drug party.” (Here in central Virginia, Petty will soon headline a festival that also features String Cheese Incident and various surviving Grateful Dead members, so it seems safe to assume that it’s the “playing records” part Petty doesn’t like, rather than the “drug party” part.) But I can imagine Petty getting a chuckle out of the video below: French pop-house cheesemonger, playing a set at Belgium’s Tomorrowland festival, being caught on video spacing out heavily during one of his own buildups. With that flashing light behind him, Guetta looks like he’s living out a heroin-addiction montage from a low-budget movie. Observe:

Someone needs to put together a Tumblr devoted entirely to DJs’ faces at festival shows; they’re always amazing.

  1. That was a complete and utter waste of :42 seconds of my life. ty.

  2. I am almost positive that Tom Petty would not only NOT appreciate this, but would present it as Exhibit A proving that EDM shows are a joke.

  3. Man, I bet David Guetta is just really tired in this video. The dude’s not young, and his job is basically to just blast party music all night, every night.

  4. He looks a bit like John Entwistle.

  5. The build up and spinning background makes this creepily intensifying.
