Don Diablo retaliates against Ultra, refuses to play another UMF event

Hard feelings erupt after Singapore set

Don Diablo has decided to forgo all scheduled UMF appearances due to issues that arose during Ultra Music Festival Singapore.

The Netherland’s Diablo, who has been a staple on UMF’s international festival circuit, took to Facebook Video to voice his displeasure surrounding last weekend’s stop. According to the video, which can be seen below, Diablo and his team were left “massively disrespected” by a series of texts that arrived while they were in transit (admittedly late) to their appearance.

Accompanied by his production and tour manager, Diablo recounts receiving correspondence from the UMF team stating he was no longer welcome at the events and wouldn’t be financially compensated for that night’s gig despite playing the last 30 minutes of the scheduled slot.

DJs Throttle and 3lau came to Diablo’s defense via video comments. In addition, Diablo insists he is not alone in this matter: “There are a lot of other DJs, some of your favorite DJs, that are not performing at the festival.”

So, while Diablo might not be at Ultra Japan, he'll still be energizing global audiences at Ibiza ang Belguim.
