Diplo says he and Skrillex’s act, Jack U, wasn’t booed off the Robot Heart stage at Burning Man for playing DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s Get Down for What while filling in for Seth Troxler. He says Jack U played eight sets during the festival ranging from trap and dubstep at the Question Mark stage to UK bass on the Opulent Temple, dub and classic reggae at Dancestranaught and deep techno and tribal house:
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 .. Just wrapped our set up with an inside joke
Diplo and Skrillex are reportedly booed off the Robot Heart stage at Burning Man. The duo, who play together under the name Jack U, fill in with an emergency set after Detroit DJ Seth Troxler refuses to play when his entourage is denied access to the decks. The crowd is happy until Diplo plays DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s Turn Down for What at the end of the set, when they begin booing.
