Closing the day 2 of the festival, Deadmau5 was a special guest at Ultra trolled Martin Garrix by dropping the McMaNGOS Funnymals version of popular track 'Animals'. Deadmau5 had previously poked at Garrix over said track on twitter, taking it one step further when he performed the unofficial parody of the track.

Right after this, the mau5 played a mash-up of 'Ghost N Stuff' and one of Avicii's signature tracks, 'Levels'. Whether or not this was also a slight to his fellow DJ, is not clear. However what happened next was a back on forth on Twitter with popular artist DJ Tiesto. Here is the exchange.
