Diplo: ‘I’m going to play an alt-country set at Movement Detroit’

Dip takes on the haters after being announced for the iconic techno festival...

Diplo was announced to perform at Movement Detroit yesterday, for the event which takes place from 26th to 28th May.

The news was followed by a number of people lamenting the booking at a festival with roots closesly associated to techno.

Last night, Diplo fired back at the critics stating that he has already appeared at the event in 2012 before poking fun at those "safe guarding America’s techno scene”.

He went on to jokingly say that his performance would be an alt-country set when asked what he will play. You can see a selection of the tweets below.

Diplo was also announced on the bill for Sónar in Barcelona, which takes place in June.
