After a week with Slipknot, Machine Gun Kelly was greeted with a chorus of boos during the singer-rapper's Saturday set at the metal-oriented Louder Than Life Festival.
Last weekend, at Riot Fest in Chicago, Machine Gun Kelly started a rant against Slipknot - who were playing on a neighboring stage at the same time - calling the group "weird old guys in masks". It later emerged that there was some residual hostility over a failed collaboration between MGK and Slipknots Corey Taylor.

MGK - an artist who, as Taylor suggested, "failed a genre and chose to go rock" - brought his new punk sound to the Metal Purist Festival in Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday, and the reception was uninviting : According to reports and video from the gig, after every song Kelly performed, a serenade of boo and middle fingers rose from the crowd.
At some point, Kelly verbally came into contact with a festival-goer and even threatened him with a Star Wars lightsaber that was on stage for some reason:
"I see you dude, I see you crazy as a fuck in your weird damn outfit. I'm here for the same shit that you're here for so all is well. Of course I'm not going anywhere, so just enjoy it, ”he told the viewer. “You keep fucking me homie? Trained Jedi, bitch! "
It briefly got physical when MGK and fans came face-to-face in the photo pit McGregor a few weeks earlier:
Despite the unwelcome reception, Kelly still managed to deliver his typical festival set. The artist is set to perform next - in front of a likely more hospitable audience - at the Firefly Festival in Dover, Delaware on Sunday.
