Diplo Booed Off Robot Heart Decks At Burning Man

Diplo Booed Off Robot Heart Decks At Burning Man

As the dust settles on another year of Burning Man, the many stories that took place on the expansive playa of Black Rock City are beginning to trickle through to the real world. One that has just come our way involves Seth Troxler, Skrillex and Diplo at the infamous Robot Heart Bus.

Seth Troxler was scheduled for a set on the Robot Heart decks on Wednesday night, though as a source in attendance informs us, the Detroit DJ refused to play after his entourage was denied access to join him behind the decks. Looking to fill Troxler's slot, organisers quickly replaced him with dance music's hottest duo Jack U, aka Skrillex and Diplo, who just happened to be hanging on the bus at the time (the pair were at the festival to play at Camp Question Mark the following evening).

Crisis averted it would seem, with Skrillex reported to have played "a pretty cool set". However things took a turn for the worse when Skrilly tagged in his pal Diplo, who made the unfortunate decision to drop DJ Snake & Lil Jon's 'Turn Down for What'. The result? Loud disapproval from the crowd which brought an abrupt end to the Diplo/Skrillex session. The Robot Heart vibe was then swiftly restored by a scorching set from Tale Of Us.

All's well that ends well? It just goes to show that even when you're at a professional level, you're still always learning about the art of DJing.
