[UPDATED] Skrillex and Diplo booed off stage at Robot Heart’s Burning Man Camp

According to PulseRadio, Skrillex and Diplo were booed off stage at Burning Man this past weekend. The duo, who were scheduled to perform at Camp Question Mark as Jack U, made an impromptu visit to the Robot Heart Camp to fill in for Seth Troxler on Wednesday night.  Apparently Troxler was a bit perturbed at having his entourage denied stage access and refused to play leading organizers to hastily replace him with Skrillex and Diplo. The strange decision was accepted at first but was quickly cut short when DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What” came blaring through the speakers.  The disapproving crowd forced organizers to end the set and restore the Robot Heart aesthetic with something a bit more cerebral from Tale of Us.


So it appears Skrillex and Diplo were not booed off stage as Pulse Radio and various first-hand accounts led us to believe. A few hours ago, Diplo took to Twitter to clear up what has quickly become the most widespread news bite from this year’s Burning Man.

Diplo writes:

Despite rumors .. I wanna thank robot heart crew for putting together and awesome lineup or surprise guests and attendees that is gettin lost in a really lame false news story.. Although robot heart is anonymous and strictly a deeply quiet crew .. One of the founders .. Jaspn swamy loves this funny moment and is astounded that this is one of the busiest press stories from this years burning man.. Not only me and skrillex popped in but also above and beyond , thievery corp and Seth and many more underground artists.. No one is ever listed or promoted and all the lineups word of mouth .. I have been friends of Jason (who’s has booked me outside of bm in other countries) for many years and nothing on hear articles is true .. There was no booing .. No bad vibes … Nothing about seth troxler was true either… I wanna say one thing… I’m a dj thru and thru .. We did about 8 sets thru our few days at BM.. Ranging from trap dubstep at question mark to uk bass on the opulent temple .. Dub and classic reggae on the dancestranaught car and even deep techno and tribal house on robot heart.. Everyone on stage had a fun moment when we played a few tunes as we were Just killing time while the next dj was setting up.. We weren’t kicked off or booed .. Jus wrapped our set up with an inside joke … And of all the stories to come out after an amazing week… This is pretty tabloidish that’s not what burningman is about.. Everything we did there was good fun and all the people that attended knows it..
