This past weekend at Dreamfields Mexico, the lineup was quite stacked seeing that both deadmau5 and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike were both slated to play, but that didn’t mean that they necessarily enjoyed each others’ company.
It turns out, both superstar acts (mau5 was playing as Testpilot) took their stages at the same time – the duo at the main stage and the Canadian at the bespoke Techno area – and the latter of the two apparently could not stand the antics that were taking place “20 feet” away. Deadmau5 cited the Belgium-based team’s liberal use of the microphone as his main concern as he tried his best to play his nuanced and PA-free set.
“I’m sorry, But dimitri and like Mike or whatever the fuck they are need to seriously SHUT THE FUCK UP? Seriously” the DJ named Joel Zimmerman posted on his own subreddit following the show. While deadmau5 has gotten in some real trouble following his past rants, this issue seems to be quite legitimate and understandable. Read how he elaborated on the event below.
