MC Harvey is fuming after So Solid Crew were axed from the Lovebox festival, held at Victoria Park this coming weekend.
So Solid Crew were due to take to the festival’s main stage tomorrow (20.07.13), but have now been dropped from the bill, because, according to Harvey, another artist didn’t want the group performing in the same area as them.
“Yes #LoveBox is cancelled because another artist don’t want us on the same stage as them,” Harvey tweeted.
“UK artists blocking SoSolid #Wow. We gave these a******** careers karmas a bitch.
“Sorry to everyone who has brought tickets to see us at Lovebox we have been removed with no valid explanation (sic).”
Writing about the rap group’s success, MC Harvey – real name Michael Harvey – continued: “We sell out the indigo! We are doing the 02 arena, we gave artist careers and they still treat us like c****. So solid crew is a scapegoat for the industry some conspiracy ting KMT.
“Platinum albums Brit awards & Mobos endless top tens and this is how Great Britain repay us #f***you #Stereotype (sic).”
However, an alternative explanation for the exclusion of SSC – excessive demand – has since been forthcoming.
A spokesperson for MC Harvey told The Sun: “The demand for So Solid Crew fans and the number of punters at Lovebox (30,000 plus) is too much for the venue.
“The boys do feel victimised slightly but we are one of four acts who has also been given the same information so it was a amicable decision. We hope the fans have a safe day and enjoy the show.”
Some tickets for Lovebox are still available here.
