Peace threaten to ‘bang out’ Diplo backstage at Leeds Festival

Artists involved in jokey war of words on Twitter backstage

Peace have engaged in a light-hearted Twitter spat with Diplo after the Major Lazer producer appeared to criticise them backstage at Leeds Festival.

Both Major Lazer and Peace performed on the NME/BBC Radio 1 Stage yesterday (August 24) with Diplo tweeting about indie bands covering songs by Disclosure in their sets. This was taken personally by Peace, who cover the dance duo’s ‘White Noise’ during their set.

Tweeting Diplo back, Peace Link: wrote: “Come 2 catering. Ill bang u out u clown” which, in turn, led to Diplo repying apologetically: “Every song u played was massive, the crowd was bananas except for ‘White Noise’, that was just kinda lame. I’m in catering now. I dont know if getting banged out is a good thing. For real, the kids knew all the words to your songs it was dope. Also I play ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ in my set so who cares.”


However, Diplo later appeared to take back the pleasantries, when he tweeted at Peace once more, Link: writing: “I would have waited in catering to woop you guys but I thought u were alll girls.” Peace frontman Harry Koisser has had the last word, tweeting about feeling bullied by Diplo.
