Video: Deadmau5 dislikes festivals (especially Ultra)


Joel Zimmerman aka Deadmau5 held a UStream on Christmas. When asked whether or not he was performing at 2012's Ultra Music Festival, the social networking guru/DJ went on a lengthy 12 plus minute rant about why festivals usually suck.

The electro star clarified that he liked Miami and that his animosity towards events like Ultra isn't due to the other bands on the bill, but that it was the fact that having a 'cluster fuck' of a lineup leads to short set times and limited production capabilities.

Zimmerman also stated that he respects Daft Punk for not doing festivals and that Ultra would never be able to get them on the bill. Oh and if you're a promoter or event organizer, don't tell Deadmau5 you loved his set, because he 'doesn't give a fuck about what you think'.
