At What The Festival in Oregon this past weekend, Hippie Sabotage had their set cut short (to about 30 minutes), which prompted the duo to start a fight with the festival's security.
The fight escalated to the point where a security member was being choked and wrestled to the floor. A source that was supposedly close to the incident, gave further details:
“So right when they got on, the one with the beard started screaming ‘I DONT GIVE A FUCK’ over and over. The sound guy said something to him about it and he didn’t like it so he got in the sound guys face. They cut his mic after that so they started slamming the mics and jumping in the pool then back on the decks. That’s when security came to pull them off and this ensued.”
According to witnesses, the duo was throwing mics into a nearby pool, which prompted security to stop them from further damaging the festival's property. Hippie Sabotage's response to the security team was to start a brawl. After the fight was broken up, they were escorted off the festival's property.
The fight was caught on camera, so you can decide for yourself who is at fault. We hope everyone involved is safe and without injuries. Watch the incident below:
Hippie Sabotage has since responded:
“It was an unfortunate event that placed us in an unsafe situation in the middle of our performance. We feel terrible that the fans didn’t get the full set, but we love performing for Portland and will be back.”
