Artists' riders are always fun things to cast an eye over and see what lavish demands are made.
Diplo had perhaps the most comical one we’ve ever seen surface in 2012, as reported by The New York Post’s Page Six section.
Demands ranged from “one Gorilla (Silverback is preferred, an Orangutan is also acceptable)” to “one dart board (with Nicolas Cage’s face on it)”, and also included “one parrot that is trained to say your name”, “one Malawian orphan", “one arranged marriage”, the “third season of Lost (on VHS tapes)" and a “framed picture of Diplo”.
Now his collaborative rider with Skrillex for touring as Jack Ü has leaked. It seems Skrillex has had a calming effect as it’s fairly standard this time. Stacked with treats, but nothing too outlandish.
Required items this time include H&M socks and t-shirts, chicken caesar salads with “NO croutons”, and enough alcohol to take down an elephant. The most unusual request is probably that the lighters provided must not be white.
Take a look below.
