Six Best EDM Riders: From Deadmau5 to Pauly D and Diplo

Dillon Francis
Francis is the EDM world's biggest trollface. So obviously, his rider is absurd. With a hint of sarcasm, he asks for a framed picture of any action star circa 1985-2005, a bag of rice (he hates Jasmine), a piñata full of candy, a replication of Indiana Jones's whip, black tar heroin, an Amish-made electrical fireplace, VHS porn, a signed photo of Avicii, and the promoter's girlfriend's phone number.

But hands down, Diplo's recently revealed rider takes the motherfucking cake. (Sorry, Steve.) Bro has the best optional fare, including but not limited to, two air horns, two inflatable animals (bonus if endangered), four blank Maxwell cassettes (new in package), a 1983 G.I. Joe Storm Shadow action figure, a framed picture of himself, a Malawian orphan, an arranged marriage, a new original NES still in package, a parrot trained to say your name, a dart board with Nicolas Cage's face, and a 1983 Yak Face Star Wards Return of the Jedi action figure. Damn. What a boss.
