Wireless Festival knew for “a few months” that DJ Khaled was unlikely to make the event

This weekend, DJ Khaled dropped out of a headline slot at Wireless Festival, seemingly at the last minute

Wireless tweeted blaming his no-show on “travel issues”.

However, disappointed fans quickly found social media posts from the producer and DJ, showing him seemingly “on vacation”.

This understandably left many of those with tickets angry and annoyed.

Wireless, to their credit, managed to have a surprise truncated 20 minute slot from Drake instead.

However, Wireless tweeted again late on Sunday night, after the festival had finished, saying that due to schedule filming his US reality music competition show “DJ Khaled was not able to commit to perform” at the festival. And most worryingly, they admitted they had “known for a few months.”

This news did not go down well, and the replies to those tweets are a stream of angry festival goers.

Friday night at Wireless was headlines by J Cole and Post Malone, with Migos and Stormzy topping the bill on Saturday. As well as Drake, Lil Uzi Vert Giggs and Rae Sremmurd also played on Sunday.
