You Won’t Believe Some of the Rider Requests at Future Music Festival Asia

Future Music Festival Asia is Slated to be Southeast Asia’s largest music festival ever with over 500,000 attendees split over two days. This week, the festival, which will feature several big name EDM stars has been going viral for another reason…

The festival organisers have leaked 10 of the most bizarre rider requests from their line-up of DJ’s playing at the event and you wont believe quite how bizarre they get!

Here were Future Music Festival Asia’s Top 10 Requests Ever Made:

  1. A particular duo has requested for a bisexual goldfish, of all things. We’re not exactly sure why, but maybe it just has more flare than a regular goldfish.

  2. Fortunately, even while touring, these guys still care about the environment. So much so that they have requested fortwo large trash cans, a recycling bin and reusable plates to use.

  3. A well-known American DJ had asked for a framed picture of himself to be placed in his dressing room. There’s no reason to not love yourself when you’re that famous.

  4. This DJ has always been one of the biggest trolls in the industry. Be careful, because his rider list includes the promoter’s girlfriend’s phone number, a replica of Indiana Jones’s whip and a piñata full of candy!

  5. This next one may be kind of cute. This DJ’s request for heart-shaped balloons seems pretty harmless but what’s next on the list? Waitress outfits!

  6. Some people travel with their pets but this artist likes to travel exotically by having a parrot that’s trained to say his name.

  7. We are all for riding in style and making a grand entrance. This world-famous DJ prefers his ride to be either a Bugatti Veyron or a Porsche Spyder. Classy indeed.

  8. Having all the furniture removed and replacing them with your own may be overdoing it, but what’s more comfortable than having your own stuff with you?

  9. One of the more elegant things to be requested is to have a professional violinist play while this artist eats his cheese plate.

  10. Lastly, an infamous moombahton and dancehall DJ requested for a bonfire pit in his dressing room to add more sizzle while on tour!
