Earlier this morning, we revealed the news about DJ Snake and the reason why he wears his signature blacked out shades. Now hours later we have some startling news about the superstar DJ. After a year of major successes such as closing down Ultra Miami as well as a massive Coachella set where he performed alongside Ms. Lauryn Hill, DJ Snake has basically just disappeared.
DJ Snake Cancels At Hangout
Hang Out Music Festival in Gulf Shores, AL is happening this weekend and DJ Snake was supposed to be performing at 4:45 today. The festival just tweeted out from their official account that DJ Snake has canceled and Lil Yachty will be taking his place.

No official reason for the cancellation has been given at the time of publication. A Reddit user commented that DJ Snake may have been pulled over for DUI. We find this hard to believe though as DJ Snake would be driving himself to a festival while owning a private jet for traveling. The more likely reason in this case is the poor weather Alabama is currently experiencing.
The Socials Go Dark
DJ Snake has also suspended both his Twitter and Instagram accounts. This is not a good sign considering the cancellation today. We are a little confused on this one. Issues could range from a tactical suspension of accounts to avoid the hate from fans at Hangout, to issues involving the current law suit he is a part of with his smash hit ‘Turn Down For What'.
Just this week he announced in front of a crowd of 80K at the Mawazine Festival a statement regarding the lawsuit:
“When you are on top, people are trying to bring you down. So you do have to prepare for this and be ready. All I will be doing is keep bringing those positive vibes. I do this for the fans because they show me so much love every day.”
Seems like a bit of a weird thing to say for a case that is just heating up. Especially when you are up against the top copyright Lawyer in the world. Whatever is going on in the world of DJ Snake, we hope that he is doing well. We will keep you updated as this continues to unfold.
