DJ Snake deletes social media accounts, cancels Hangout Music Festival performance

No official confirmation as to why has yet been given...

DJ Snake cancelled his appearance at Hangout Music Festival yesterday (21st May), before deleting both his Twitter and Instagram accounts.

DJ Snake - real name William Sami Etienne Grigahcine - was due to perform on the final night of Hangout, but the festival announced his slot would be filled by Lil Yachty via Twitter ahead of his appearance.

No official confirmation as to why the performance was cancelled, or his social media accounts have been deleted, has yet been given.

DJ Snake found himself at the centre of a new copyright lawsuit filed in a New York federal court earlier this month (4th May), which claims his Lil Jon collaboration, titled ‘Turn Down for What’, violates the copyright of rapper Freddie GZ.

Snake’s Major Lazer collab, ‘Lean On’, also hit two billion views on YouTube in April.
