Diplo And Skrillex Were Booed Off The Stage At Burning Man


According to reports, the DJ Diplo was booed off of the Robot Heart Stage at this year's Burning Man Festival. It seems that Seth Troxler was scheduled to perform on Wednesday night, but ultimately refused to perform when his entourage was denied access.

The organizers were able to replace Troxler with Jack U, a collaboration between Skrillex and Diplo. The duo were scheduled to perform the following evening, and agreed to fill in for Troxler. Skrillex kicked off the set strongly, but after tagging in Diplo, the crowd turned nasty. Diplo opened with "Turn Down For What," the DJ Snake & Lil Jon tune, and was immediately met with strong booing from the audience.

The booing was so strong, in fact, that the whole set was cut short. Eventually, Tale of Us were able to restore a positive atmosphere to the Robot Heart stage crowd.

We have an eyewitness account from Burner Christopher:

"They deserved it.. They were both a disgrace…. particularly Diplo’s dumb ass dropping that fucking power 106 hip hop drop noise that they always dub over horrible hip hop songs to try to spice them up (like DJ Khaled… just annoying as shit) CONSTANTLY during the burning of the embrace…. Fucking joke ass DJ trying to ruin the vibe for thousands people on purpose just because he’s loaded with millions and arrogant as shit and thinks its funny? yeah… go ahead and NEVER come back EVERR please and thankyou."

Update: Diplo releases a statement on twitter to claim he was never booed off stage:

Despite rumors .. I wanna thank robot heart crew for putting together and awesome lineup or surprise guests and attendees that is gettin lost in a really lame false news story.. Although robot heart is anonymous and strictly a deeply quiet crew .. One of the founders .. Jaspn swamy loves this funny moment and is astounded that this is one of the busiest press stories from this years burning man.. Not only me and skrillex popped in but also above and beyond , thievery corp and Seth and many more underground artists.. No one is ever listed or promoted and all the lineups word of mouth .. I have been friends of Jason (who's has booked me outside of bm in other countries) for many years and nothing on hear articles is true .. There was no booing .. No bad vibes ... Nothing about seth troxler was true either... I wanna say one thing... I'm a dj thru and thru .. We did about 8 sets thru our few days at BM.. Ranging from trap dubstep at question mark to uk bass on the opulent temple .. Dub and classic reggae on the dancestranaught car and even deep techno and tribal house on robot heart.. Everyone on stage had a fun moment when we played a few tunes as we were Just killing time while the next dj was setting up.. We weren't kicked off or booed .. Jus wrapped our set up with an inside joke ... And of all the stories to come out after an amazing week... This is pretty tabloidish that's not what burningman is about.. Everything we did there was good fun and all the people that attended knows it..
