Alison Wonderland & More Trash Ultra Music Festival DJ Set By KFC’s Colonel Sanders

The dance music world is up in arms about one particular DJ set at this year’s instalment of Ultra Music Festival in Miami.

Fried chicken juggernaut KFC bought a DJ slot for “Colonel Sanders” to perform on the EDM extravaganza’s main stage on Friday night, we sh*t you not.

“This @kfc colonel sanders Djing at @ultra is lame,” wrote Marshmello in a since-deleted tweet. “I can think of a lot of other artists that actually deserve to be on that stage instead.”

Australia’s own Alison Wonderland has also weighed in, calling the move “tacky”:
