DJ Khaled has had a string of hits lately, thanks to song collabs with Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and others. But over the weekend, things didn’t seem to go so well for him. During his set at Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, Khaled was booed off the stage, and the hitmaker is now accusing the festival’s organizers of sabotaging his set.
Khaled was scheduled to perform an hourlong set but ended up performing for only 20 minutes. Later, he Instagrammed this video of fans screaming his name.
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

Pasquale Rotella, the CEO and founder of Insomniac, which put on the Electric Daisy Carnival, addressed the issue on Tuesday. He said, “Due to technical difficulties beyond DJ Khaled and Insomniac’s control, Khaled was not able to perform at his scheduled time on Sunday night at EDC. He arrived on time and ready to rock the crowd, but equipment issues delayed the performance.”
