Generally, festivals confirm their artists before teasing lineups…it’s only common sense. However, it seems one festival dropped the ball, using Deadmau5’s likeness, despite the artist having no involvement in the festival, to help generate ticket sales.

While it’s unclear if Bassnectar and GRiZ will be on the lineup, Deadmau5 took to Twitter to express his concerns with the festival, as he had no plans to perform there. He even offered to help fans that happened to buy a ticket expecting to see him, as there are undoubtedly a number of dedicated Mau5 fans that hopped on the presale train once they saw that picture.  See his response below:
