DJ Khaled pulls out of Wireless due to 'travel issues', hours after 'still on vacation' tweet

Wireless instead promised the festival was 'working on something special'

DJ Khaled has pulled out of his appearance at this weekend’s Wireless Festival, in London, citing “travel issues”.

The musician had originally been scheduled to close the festival on Sunday night, but a tweet by organisers on the morning of the performance announced that his appearance had been cancelled last-minute.

“Due to travel issues DJ Khaled will not be performing but we are working on something special that won’t disappoint,” the statement from Wireless read.

However, some fans were a little infuriated with the musician, after pointing out that he had posted – a mere 14 hours before – a picture of himself relaxing in the pool with the caption: “Still on vacation!!!!!!!!”

One small consolation, perhaps, is that current rumours suggest Drake may be the “something special” Wireless is currently working on.

It had previously been suggested the rapper might make a guest appearance during DJ Khaled’s set, with an insider telling Metro: “Drake is known for his surprise appearances, having performed at the Reading festival and London’s Xoyo last year.”

“But he’s now planning his biggest surprise to tie in with the launch of his latest album. Giggs and DJ Khaled have asked him to come out on stage with them on Sunday as they bring the festival to a close.”

Representatives for DJ Khaled have been contacted for comment.
