Fan Recalls The Shade Diplo Threw at EDC LV Last Year in Tweet to DJ
The sunlight of an approaching festival season doesn’t mean that the dance music community miraculously forgets the shade of the Twitter sphere, at times an intensely passive aggressive circle in the EDM climate.
EDM fans will accordingly remember the shot Diplo took at EDC Las Vegas’s main stage design last year: “edc main stage look likes Walt Disney present princess castle on crystal meth how do u guys play that thing & look at yourself in the mirror.” The “Boy Oh Boy” producer’s comment was attributed by many to a bitterness that the DJ himself was not among those to appear on the lineup for the festival’s milestone 20th anniversary.
Ever lighthearted, Insomniac head Pasquale Rotella responded to Diplo’s dig with an image of the producer wearing a strawberry head, a promotional move in support of HARD Summer.
The civil of us would let the then drama be, but others keyed into the hilarity of the exchange felt it was worth revisiting. “How do you feel about playing the Walt Disney princess meth castle this year?” a fan asked Diplo on Twitter.
Diplo’s answer? “I’m gonna smoke it up.”
