Festival Used Image of Deadmau5 To Sell Tickets, But He's Not Playing

Apparently The Germination Festival recently teased an image that looks suspiciously like Deadmau5, Bassnectar, and Griz, with the tag "Big announcement coming!"

Joel caught wind of it thanks to a tweet from a fan.

Now say what you will about his thorny, often trollish online personality, but Deadmau5 is known for sticking up for fans, and he's doing just that in this situation.

And apparently whoever he contacted at the festival made light of the situation, but he wasn't amused.

We're not sure if this is technically illegal, but given that the festival was selling tickets with deliberately misleading information, it's certainly shady and trying to play it off as a joke doesn't change anything. But hopefully any fans who did buy tickets hoping to see Deadmau5, Bassnectar, or Griz will be able to get refunds.
