Ah, April Fool’s. The one day a year it’s acceptable to play silly, unkind, or just plain cruel jokes on your friends and family. The EDM world is no exception to this day, especially given the way our community utilizes the internet to connect.
This makes us quite the target for April Fool’s Day pranks, and because of this, we’ve scoured the web for some of the most hilarious jokes. From the Tesla / Serato Announcement and not one, but two ‘confirmations’ of Daft Punk going on tour, the jokes were out of this world.
Check out some of the best ones from this year below.
Information about a new festival in Bellevue popped up today and while the ‘festival’ is 100% fake, we can’t help but have a chuckle. The “lineup” is partially released, featuring the names of popular artists Drake, Taylor Swift and Beyonce. It claims attendees can camp out overnight in the park with access to full amenities. The article goes on to say that the money raised will go to the AFD Fund. Go here to check out the article (and the hilarious ‘website’ link).

Supreme announces collab with Pioneer

In this April Fool’s Day story, Mixmag interviews a kid who says, “I borrowed my dad’s credit card and started queueing. Looking to get all three bits for my bedroom but might allow the remix thing.” Normally, this might not sound like a huge deal…except for the fact that the entire kit was said to cost a hefty £15,000. That’s $20,058.50 USD, or $27,147.14 CAD.
