DJ Snake Forced To Cancel Bumbershoot Appearance

DJ Snake is riding a massive wave of success following the release of his debut studio album, Encore, earlier this month. The combination of Encore’s success on the charts, and hit singles like Lean On, Turn Down For What, and, recently, Let Me Love You, this French hit maker became a can’t miss act at this year’s Bumbershoot Festival. With 2 weeks until the 26th edition of this Seattle staple, and excitement levels increasing, Snake dropped an unfortunate remix: no more Bumbershoot headlining set and no future studio albums.

In a statement released Thursday by Bumbershoot, “unforeseen personal circumstances” are to blame for this sudden exit. His replacement? Compton-born rapper YG, best known for tracks like Who Do You Love and My Hitta. Bangers, sure, but not exactly EDM!

To make matters worse, on the same day, DJ Snake announced on his Twitter, quote, “THAT WAS MY FIRST & LAST ALBUM” in regards to Encore. Hopefully, there will be some smaller EPs released in the future, but it’s looking more like Snake will continue to do what he does best: make chart topping singles.

With this Bumbershoot exit, we’re hopping Snake will return to the Pacific Northwest in the near future so we can turn down for what!

Full Bumbershoot information, including tickets and lineups, can be found online. Will we see you at the Space Needle this Labor Day Weekend?
