They may only play classical, but it sounds like they’ll give it a shot.

“Homerpalooza” is a classic episode of The Simpsons, known even to those who aren’t well-versed in the series. Parodying the then-traveling festival Lollapalooza, the 1996 episode featured guest appearances from Sonic Youth, The Smashing Pumpkins and stoner rap group Cypress Hill who were performing in collaboration with the London Symphony Orchestra.

Twenty-one years later, the group looked back fondly at the gag on Twitter only for it to turn into a conversation about an actual, real-life collaboration. (Twitter is so good for making your pop culture dreams a reality – or, at least, acknowledged; we see you, Rihanna and Lupita)

So, who’s got money on Glastonbury getting this next year? Coachella? Lollapalooza?
