MC Harvey vented his spleen on Twitter yesterday (July 17) after it was announced that So Solid Crew have been dropped from this weekend's Lovebox Festival.

The UK garage collective were due to perform at the east London event on Saturday (July 20) but it emerged yesterday that they've been scrubbed from the line-up – they claim because another artist objected to sharing a stage with them.

"Yes #LoveBox is canceled because another artist don't want us on the same stage as them. UK artists blocking SoSolid #Wow," MC Harvey wrote, before adding: "We sell out the indigo! we are doing the 02 arena,we gave artist careers and they still treat us like cunts."

Harvey then claimed that "So solid crew is a scapegoat for the industry some conspiracy ting KMT" and railed against the lack of respect he feels the group has been shown.


Harvey also tweeted that he is "so upset for the fans who spent there [sic] hard earned money to see us" and thanked Lovebox Festival for its support, writing: "We know this is out of your hands."

A request for a response from Lovebox's representatives has not yet been returned.

So Solid Crew made their live comeback at London's IndigO2 on March 21 and this October they'll embark on a five-date UK tour that's being billed as "So Solid Crew - for the last time ever". The tour ends with a huge show at London's O2 Arena on October 5.
