Fans and stars of the music and entertainment world have reacted to the news that Daft Punk have split up.

It was confirmed earlier today (February 22) that the French duo had called it quits after 28 years.

An eight-minute video called ‘Epilogue’ showed the pair – Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo – in the desert in their trademark futuristic helmets. But when one of them hit a button, an explosion went off and the screen turned to black.

The video ended with a pair of robot hands alongside the dates 1993-2021. Their publicist later confirmed that the clip was announcing their split.

Since the news broke, fans and stars alike have taken to social media to share their reactions to Daft Punk being no more.

“Thank you Daft Punk,” Apple Music’s Zane Lowe wrote. “I guess we’re going to have to figure it out for ourselves from now on.”

“thinking about how every stage of my life would have gone so differently if it weren’t for Daft Punk,” wrote DJ/producer Porter Robinson in one tweet. In another, he reflected on his early memories of the group.

After 28 years the legendary duo Daft Punk is officially separating. This is a sad considering how much they have contributed to foundation of electronic music. Nearly every artist has been influenced by them in some way. Can’t believe we won’t see them live again “one more time”

Daft Punk is one of the greatest duos in music for me. They are one of my favorite artists of all time. Discovery and Random Access Memories are 10/10s and the way how they portrayed such emotion as robots always hit me. Thank You Daft Punk for everything you done for us. pic.twitter.com/PWgEloJawc

Daft Punk was one of my all-time favorite bands. I couldn’t imagine my childhood days without their amazing music. Their splitting up is devastating news and they will be sadly missed. Make no mistake, they will be remembered as one of the greats.

Last year, Julian Casablancas revealed he’d been “trying to do something” with Daft Punk. The Strokes frontman previously collaborated with the duo on their 2013 single ‘Instant Crush’.

However, Casablancas had been told they weren’t “doing music right now”, with “one of them focused on video stuff and the other one kind of obsessing with ancient aliens or something”.
