DJ Avicii Cancels at Ultra Fest

Superstar DJ Avicii has canceled his headlining performance at Ultra Music Festival this weekend due to health issues, Ultra tweeted.

Avicii was hospitalized Thursday evening and canceled his performance at the SLS Hotel in Miami Beach, which was supposed to be a prelude to Ultra.

He was admitted to the hospital after severe abdominal pain, nausea and fever, due to a blocked gall bladder, The Miami Herald reported. 

DJ Avicii will now be replaced at Ultra by Deadmau5, a Canadian progressive-house music producer and performer.

Miami's 16th Annual Ultra Music Festival will take place from Friday, March 28 through Monday, March 30. Ultra organizers expect a daily attendance of 50 to 60,000 music lovers.
