Amid the bright light and loud beats of Ultra Music Festival 2016 in Miami, there was still some room for politics on the stage.

The Chainsmokers, who played the Worldwide stage Saturday, reportedly denounced Donald Trump during their live-stream set, explaining their decision afterward to fans over a series of tweets.

This isn't the first time the "Roses" duo expressed their opinions on the Republican front-runner: In an interview just before Billboard Winterfest 2016, they declared: "The Trump-Palin thing is just insane, but it's not any more insane than Trump has been this whole time."

And they weren't the only ones to start a political conversation at Ultra: Rabbit in the Moon featured a giant screen onstage with flashing images and videos of Trump that elicited boos from the crowd.

But in The Chainsmokers' case, they also went more in-depth about their stance and encouraged personal choice and the importance of voting, ending the tweets on a more positive note with a promise of new music to come soon.
