Wolfgang Gartner attacks Martin Solveig via Twitter

Alright so this weekend in El Paso, Neon Desert Music Festival was held and featured headliners Wolfgang Gartner and Martin Solveig. The festival went off without a hitch until Wolfgang Gartner’s set ended and Martin Solveig went on. Gartner went on to open up in a massive rant on twitter attacking Solveig’s choice of tracklist and bringing us back to the issue of all acts at a festival playing the same big EDM tracks. Check out Gartner’s rant below.

So Gartner does speak a lot of truth in this, many DJs do play a lot of the same tracks at festivals. In fact just the other day in the group chat we have on Facebook with some of the artists playing for our Mixify festival tomorrow one of the artists jokingly asked how many people would be playing ‘LRAD’ in their sets. While we all laughed and joked about it, I couldn’t help but take it to heart and stop to think about the repetitiveness of some sets. I went on to read Martin Solveig’s rant below and he brings up some really good points.

Martin definetley raises a good point; a lot of people WANT to hear these “big EDM” tracks at festivals and then there are hardcore fans that end up wanting to hear some underground tracks. Either way, I’ll take Zedd’s side and say that a good balance is the best option.

Who do you think ‘won’ this argument? Let us know your opinion in the comments below!
