Heatwave Promoter: ‘Kid Cudi Acted Like A Spoiled Brat’

Written by John Ritchie on January 30, 2012

Heatwave promoter Patrick Whyntie has hit out at Kid Cudi (his headline act) calling him a ‘spoiled brat’. Kid Cudi trashed the stage at the last Heatwave Festival in Melbourne after his set was cut short, then hit out at Whyntie saying:

Spread the word. No matter the circumstance, cut my set short, im breaking shit. And next time im startin a riot.

Speaking with messandnoise today Whyntie said:

The whole tour, he (Cudi) was acting like a spoiled brat; you can ask anyone and everyone who encountered him. He had everything from his substantial fee upfront to the five-star suites he required.

When asked if the Australian market could support a national hip hop festival like Heatwave, Whyntie replied:

I think if all the stars align, any genre of music can be supported. It’s always a risky business, and things need time to grow. We did go too big, too quick.

The stars definitely didn’t align for Patrick in 2012.
