EDM dons taken ill during WMC

Miami is now in full swing, with Collins Avenue bustling with party people enjoying the pool parties and gearing up for Ultra this weekend.

But the DJs don’t seem to be fairing so well. Yesterday Avicii cancelled his show at the SLS (his official, branded hotel for Miami Music Week) amidst reports that he had been rushed to hospital.

He is still due to appear at Ultra this weekend, and now been checked out of hospital. The reasons behind the cancellation and his hospitalisation are not yet clear.

In an unrelated incident, Afrojack - who released his album ‘Ten Feet Tall’ with a free party at The W Hotel here in Miami - also checked himself into hospital claiming he ‘got a little too excited’. Here are the tweets that led up to the hospitalisation.

We hope that neither case is serious and that both artists make a full recovery before Ultra this weekend.
