Ok, so this is a weird one, but just so weird that it could even be true. Still with me? The Herald Sun and its affiliates are all running a story that the always buzzworthy Daft Punk have plans to hold their official global album launch party in the regional city of Wee Waa. Wee Waa. WEE WAA.

It’s said Sony Music approached the Daft Punk camp with the idea, followed of course by good people of Wee Waa. The duo were apparently stoked on “the CSIRO Australia Telescope and its array of satellite dishes”, and were totally down.

Furthermore, the community feel of the new album, Random Access Memories, which features an array of guest artists, inspired confidence in the selected location.

There is talk of a purpose-build stage happening and the event will be a weekend-long experience.

If you’re into cotton, Wee Waa is where it’s at. The cotton capital of Australia is home to around 2,100 people living about 8 hours out of Sydney. The town doesn’t sound like the typical location to be associated with mysterious French pair, but as the story goes, they’re all about exploring new boundaries.

It’s all said to be going down on Friday, 17th May. So either gear up for the most amazing announcement of all time, or prepare to be totally shattered. I mean, hey – stranger things have happened.

UPDATE: Representatives from Narrabri Shire Council have confirmed that this is ACTUALLY HAPPENING. What in the world is going on. Is Wee Waa gonna be able to contain this many sweat-thirsty discoheads come May? This is incredibly exciting news. Stay tuned for more.
