DJ Khaled was booed off stage last night after a disastrous Electric Daisy Carnival Set which he has since blamed on the festival organisers. Fans allegedly got angry after DJ Khaled turned up late to his set and appeared to cut all his songs short; video footage from twitter shows the self-proclaimed ‘snapchat king’ attempting to encourage the crowd amidst calls for him to leave the stage:

Responding to the event, Khaled issued a statement in two separate Instagram posts claiming that:
“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”
Khaled appeared to attract further criticism after posting a second Instagram video of the evening where he can be heard shouting “they want to cut my s–t, but this is California,”; observers were quick to note that the Electric Daisy Carnival is held in Nevada.
Meanwhile, DJ Khaled is preparing to release his latest album ‘Grateful’ on June 23, which features collaborations with Jay Z, Beyonce, Drake, Justin Bieber and Chance the Rapper.
