So Solid Crew have been dropped from the line-up at Lovebox in Bow, east London, but the news didn't go down well with band member MC Harvey, who took to Twitter to slam the festival
MC Harvey is fuming after his band was axed from the Lovebox festival.
So Solid Crew is meant to take to the main stage tomorrow (20.07.13) in Bow, east London, but has been dropped from the bill just days before because another artist didn't want the group performing in the same area as them.
MC Harvey took to Twitter to slam the festival, posting: "Yes #LoveBox is cancelled because another artist don't want us on the same stage as them. 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, it is thought the band were taken off the line-up because the demand was too high and the venue couldn't cater for everyone.
A spokesperson for MC Harvey told The Sun newspaper: "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."
