As per tradition, every year when the Coachella lineup is released, the fake lineup poster memes come flooding out the gates. This year is no different; with fake lineups making the rounds on social media and providing entertainment far beyond what Coachella probably intended.
Botnik Studios, an AI platform that takes thousands of words and uses neural networks to generate an output of new words, threw their hat in the ring of the meme showdown. They garnered a massive amount of attention not too long ago when they released their AI version of a Harry Potter chapter. With an input of thousands of band names, Botnik created this hilarious fake Coachella lineup featuring the likes of Glothongz and Bushfuk.
We could see many of the artist names on this lineup being actual names. I don’t doubt there actually is a Lil Hack posting mumble rap on his SoundCloud to his 365 followers. Make sure to read all of the names since there are so many hidden gems, even in the notorious Coachella size 6 font for the undercard that you need a magnifying glass to read.
Botnik describes itself as a “human-machine creative force.” The network is a collaborative effort between writers, artists, and developers to train machines to learn, much like how human brains learn the more information it receives.
Is there anything more internet than using advanced technology to generate memes?
