The hipsters of southern California may find themselves in a conundrum this year, as what was turning out to be an outrageously good line-up may be in jeopardy.

There have been calls for a boycott of the famous music festival after rumours surrounding Philip Anschutz, who owns the company that runs the festival, AEG Live.

AEG Live are the second-biggest live promotions company in the world after LiveNation, but Anschutz has allegedly "donated some of his considerable wealth to anti-LGBTQ groups like Alliance Defending Freedom, National Christian Foundation and Family Research Council, three groups that seek to push back against gains made by LGBT people using lawsuits and lobbying", according to Uproxx.

The same article also claims that Anschutz is a climate change denier.

Since its publication, he has denied the accusations, calling it 'fake news' and 'garbage' in a statement issued to Rolling Stone.

Beyoncé, Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar are amongst the acts set to headline the festival in April, but so far none of the artists involved have commented on the story.

Plenty of people have had something to say on Twitter, however, which you can see below:
