If you’re like us and you follow tons of artists on your social feeds, you were fully aware that this weekend was special. Wireless Festival was taking place in the U.K. and most of the hottest acts in the world were in attendance, performing for thousands of adoring fans. One of the most interesting situations surrounded DJ Khaled and whether or not he would actually show up. Hours before he was set to perform, the producer and executive was sharing snaps of himself on vacation with his family, leading many concertgoers to wonder if he had any intention of flying to the U.K. to perform.
Eventually, Drake was announced as his surprise replacement and, as HNHH community member TOflight said, fans were upgraded from Economy to First Class with the change. Khaled’s no-show was initially explained as a travel snafu but Wireless came through with some more details on their Twitter page. According to the post, they had been made aware of the travel issues for months as they attempted to work around his schedule.
“Due to a scheduling conflict related to filming of the The Four, DJ Khaled was not able to commit to perform at Wireless Festival. Although we have known for a few months and tried to make it work, it wasn’t possible.”
Anybody hoping to see Khaled at the festival went home having not witnessed the star yelling his name and playing his biggest hits but on the bright side, they did witness Drizzy Drake performing his new material for the first time. Glass half full?
