The Internet has been spreading rumors that Diplo and Skrillex were booed after performances at Burning Man this year. Diplo says not true:

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.. - Diplo

Has anyone ever been to burning man? Is it worth the trip?!

The 2nd photo at the bottom is from last year, FYI.

I went in 2013 and it was most definitely worth it. You really have to be prepared for it mentally and physically. Can't stress that enough, as silly as it sounds. When you know you're ready, you're ready. Can't be something you do just to, "do it".

If you know someone that's attended Burning Man, probably best to cut them out of your life asap.

yeah, this burning man thing is a huge intergalactic scam. strictly for losers and dropouts.

As someone who was there, he was booed off the Robot Heart bus for playing Turn Down For What. Robot Heart actually does typically post their lineup in Rockstar Librarian and this was the first year in a long time they didn't. Assumingly because they were trying to "diversify" their audience. The night they played was the smallest I have EVER seen a Robot Heart party in deep playa. The rest of the week played out as normal for them. To their credit, Diplo and Skrillex did play some killer sets that were very well received at other sound camps...just not Robot Heart...not their crowd...

It is good he cleared this up.

just one well-placed natural disaster could wipe out so much of the world's terrible music.

"This is pretty tabloidish that's not what burningman is about"

No, it's about riding segue scooters in native american headresses and tripping on mdma to awful, awful dance music.

Last Burning Man I went to, some 60 year-old guy with a goatee wearing cargo shorts ripped two loud nasty farts, turned around both times with a smirk on his face and said "Bazooka." to everyone around him.

Never seeing Burning Man again.

Heaven forbid, a 60-year-old guy with a goatee, wearing cargo shorts?! Did you cry?

Sounds like you got what you deserved.

hahahhahahahahhaha

something tells me that burning man is done, just as with anything truly great. when the mainstream artists pose for an appearance, as is evident here, with this prick in his kitchy funny pants.

the party is over seemingly.

Lol, that silly guy. I still think his debut album from 2004 called Florida is a masterpiece. Seriously, check it out. Here's a link if you got Spotify http://open.spotify.com/album/5W6DaTWwEqOQMdLjTHxf50

Also, check out LabelM8 for better record label searchin in Spotify http://www.labelm8.com

no album ever called: "Florida" will ever be a masterpiece.

There's a very significant reason that Burning Man is referred to as "BM"

I went to burning man and some girl named moonbeam danced frantically mumbling incoherent words about aliens stealing her bag of pita triangles.

Burning Man = more nonsense BS to keep posers occupied and convinced that they are "hip"

Posted by Anonymous | September 4, 2014 12:24 PM

The music of Skrillex sounds like someone having a violent "BM"

Posted by Anonymous | September 4, 2014 2:02 PM

Dipshit and Scrotsax deny they were booed at the Burning hippie festival.
