Avicii replaced by Deadmau5 at Ultra


A couple days ago before Ultra Music Festival  started, our beloved DJ: Avicii  was hospitalized yet released quickly. His press statement was not revealing at all saying “he’s fine” and it was mystery as to why he was put in the hospital in the first place! 😦


Yesterday afternoon it just so happened that Avicii  finally gave us a press statement saying: “Avicii  has been diagnosed as having a blocked gall bladder and is currently being evaluated for a potential surgery to remove his gall bladder. He has had to cancel all his commitments for the week, including a highly anticipated performance last night at the Ushuaia Pop Up at the Avicii Hotel at SLS and his headline performance tomorrow at the ULTRA Music Festival.”

avicii-2Feel better soon Avicii  and I’m sad we won’t be hearing you at Ultra this year 😦

To replace Avicii  is Canadian DJ Deadmau5  to close out the show tonight at Ultra


The main stage lineup at Ultra also includes Alesso, Armin Van Buuren, Martin Garrix, Krewella, and Nicky Romero!

I’m excited for Ultra  to hear new song Legacy  with Krewella & Nicky Romero:

Here’s the official tweet from Deadmau5:


It’s really unfortunate to see Avicii  not able to perform in Miami for the throngs of EDM fans from all over the world, but I at least hope that Deadmau5  will hold a tribute and sample Levels  for the crowd:

And by the way…I was absolutely mesmerized by Tïesto last night! 😀

He closed out the first night of Ultra  with a world premiere song and an hour & 1/2 set! He did his incredible version of John Legend’s  All Of Me  and had the crowd roaring! He was just stellar as can be and I recommend trying to see that performance again when it’s posted on YouTube  after the festival 🙂
