Electric Daisy Carnival is always kind of a shitshow, but it looks like it was especially shitshowy this year. One festivalgoer died, over 1000 more sought medical treatment, fans had to wait hours and hours for shuttles, and DJ Khaled’s set was sabotaged, according to DJ Khaled. After a set plagued by sound issues and technical difficulties, Khaled was booed offstage by fans chanting for Yellow Claw, the DJ who was scheduled to perform next. But to hear DJ Khaled tell it, “they” just didn’t want you to hear a DJ Khaled set at EDC:

They cut my time short and they had me back stage for a hour and half and the sound kept breaking … then 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 … I'm here for my fans even if the sound man and promoter don't have there stuff together I forgive them thoe love is the 🔑!!! MY FANS CAME OUT ! SO I CAME OUT !! NO MATTER WHAT! BLESS UP!! #GRATEFUL #JUNE23RD
They🚷 Tried to sabotage my sound so many times THEY couldnot get the sound right on my set and i still stood on stage wit no sound and when they got the sound to work they want cut my set short but I still rep for my people anyone else would walk off stage .. i knew my California and Vegas fans was in the building .. THEY🚷 DONT WANT US TO WIN SO WE WIN MORE FOR THERE HEAD TOP!!! It's all luv thoe .. love is the 🔑.. I forgive them … love is always the answer !
“They want to cut my shit, but this is California,” Khaled can be heard saying in the second video he posted to Instagram. Electric Daisy Carnival is held in Las Vegas, which is in Nevada. Nevada is not in California. Anyway, here’s Deadmau5’s take:
"they sabotaged my set! my sound isnt right." – im saving this one for later.
