What’s a current music festival without some DJ drama? Seems like there’s more hair pulling and catty action these days then an episode of Jersey Shore!
As the second weekend of Coachella winds down it turns out that set times have been jigged by 20 minutes to supposedly facilitate current big-wig Avicii and minimise the clash of his set with that of the mind blowing Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre extravaganza.
Nero was first to the scene hitting up his Facebook fans with a stern statement about the set shift and Coachella management in general;
“The organisation of this festival has been quite a surprise to us and not what we expected from what is hailed as one of the best festivals in the world. I won’t go into too many details other than to say overall our experience of the festival this year has been pretty shocking.”
It was then taken upon UK’s Feed Me that suggested rumours of Avicii’s camp asking for the move by tweeting; “Nice one to @Avicii for having everyone in the Sahara tents set times moved so he doesn’t have to compete with Snoop and Dr. Dre’s performance,” that was quickly followed up with a reply from Funkagenda “It’s like when he tried to refuse to play at Deadmau5 show in SD unless his stage was as big as Joel’s. Disgraceful.”
The twist? A fairly aggressive statement from Avicii himself on the whispers “I’ve never refused to play anywhere, and at this specific show I was never complaining so watch where you get your info from,” he said. “I don’t appreciate people making up lies about me.”
It all follows the recent revelations that the Swede played off an iPhone recently for 150K.
Update: Tim Bergling has responded on Twitter to Feed Me and Funagenda via Music Feeds
Tim Bergling/Avicii: I just landed, this is the first i hear of any of this. This wasnt my decision so I dont know why you are attacking me personally
Tim Bergling/Avicii: You should get your facts straight before posting blatant lies on twitter
