Flume just completed a 2-night run at Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater and left the crowd speechless both nights. The same, however, can’t be said for his openers. Flume was supported by JPEGMAFIA and slowthai on both nights, and from attendee tweets on Twitter, didn’t win over many new fans.

The complaints became so pervasive that Flume himself even posted a troll photo on Instagram: “Awwww sheeeiiitt here we go agin #1 #badboy #edm.”

To the attendees’ credit, JPEGMAFIA especially is a very acquired taste. But speaking as someone who’s never sought out a Peggy track on Spotify before and also saw his set at HARD Summer this past Sunday, I loved it. It was full of raw passion and energy, even if it was decidedly out of my comfort zone.

JPEGMAFIA himself tweeted about the disrespect he was getting from fans at the show.
