Khaled was supposed to perform an hour long set, but instead he only made it 20 minutes before getting booed off the stage. Fans who witnessed the disaster said he basically spent the entire time rapidly switching between other people’s songs and shouting into the microphone.
Insomniac CEO Pasquale Rotella tried to defend DJ Khaled by saying there were technical issues. “He arrived on time and ready to rock the crowd, but equipment issues delayed the performance,” Rotella said. “Even though there were technical difficulties, he still got on stage and showed his fans love.”
Khaled also put the blame on others in his Instagram posts about the fiasco.
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

These arguments would be a lot more convincing if he hadn’t just bombed his Coachella set as well. Yikes.
