DJ Khaled Says Festival Organizers Sabotaged His Set
by Mike Winslow
(AllHipHop News) DJ Khaled has accused Electric Daisy Carnival organizers of sabotaging his set, after he was booed offstage at the weekend due to poor sound.
The “I’m the One” hitmaker was scheduled to play an hour-long set at the Las Vegas festival but ended up playing only 20 minutes after his performance was blighted with technical difficulties and sound issues.
The problems led to the crowd booing him off and chanting for the next act, DJ Yellow Claw, to come onstage instead.
Khaled took to Instagram to share a video showing him telling the audience that “they” are trying to cut his set, before he hands the microphone to somebody standing behind the DJ decks, who then says, “We don’t want to, we’ve got to”.
In the caption, he wrote,”They Tried to sabotage my sound so many times THEY couldn’t (sic) get the sound right on my set and i still stood on stage wit (with) no sound and when they got the sound to work they want cut my set short but I still rep (represent) for my people anyone else would walk off stage (sic).”
In another post, he claimed the crew were suffering technical difficulties before he went on and delayed his set because of the issues. However, he says he insisted he perform regardless of the problems – as he didn’t want to let his fans down.
“I heard my fans and I said I’m go out even if the sound cuts off and even if they cut my time short,” he wrote. “I’m here for my fans even if the sound man and promoter don’t have there stuff together I forgive them thoe (though) love is the (key)!!! MY FANS CAME OUT ! SO I CAME OUT !! NO MATTER WHAT!”
