Following Khaled's withdrawal, festival organizers promised they were "working on something special that won't disappoint". Still, Khaled's cancellation left a sour taste for many in the crowd, as he posted photos of himself saying he was still on vacation.

Before the announcement from Wireless, one fan tweeted: "Maybe I'm slow and missed something".

The Canadian hitmaker, whose album Scorpion topped the charts this week, rocked up on the Main Stage at the Finsbury Park event in London, hours after it was confirmed that DJ Khaled was unable to make the show.

"See those travel problems are causing chaos.", another devotee replied sarcastically, while a third critic tweeted, "Family is the reason why we do what we do and get up to go to work.oh wait.oh no you didn't".

While the music festival was in full effect, DJ Khaled was chilling in a pool somewhere tropical, "Still on vacation!"

"Dj Khaled not at Wireless today is the most obvious indication that Drake is gonna step in".

The 30 billion gang leader wore a red shirt with the inscription, "Long Live Olu" on it before his performance at the Wireless festival. As well as Drae, Lil Uzi Vert Giggs and Rae Sremmurd also played on Sunday.

Earlier this week, rapper J Hus was dropped from Wireless Festival due to "unforeseen circumstances".

The 22-year-old was charged with knife possession last month and is due to appear at Snaresbrook Crown Court on July 20.
