It’s not a good week to be a DJ.

First, Tiesto banged up his head and had to cancel his performance at our very own AMPLIFY 2014 and now there’s word that Avicii was suddenly taken to the hospital Thursday.

TMZ reports that the “Wake Me Up” DJ was scheduled to perform at Hyde Beach at the SLS Hotel in Miami Beach, but just hours beforehand, the Australian duo Cazzette announced to the crowd that he had been hospitalized.

Sources say Avicii has since been released. His rep told Billboard that the DJ is “doing better” and “going to be fine.”

Avicii reportedly tweeted, then deleted, the following message to his fans: “At the hospital. Extremely bummed about missing my show at the Avicii Hotel. My brother @Alesso is stepping up and covering for me.”

There are also rumors that he is no longer a guest at the SLS Hotel, which is especially strange because the entire space was rebranded as the Avicii Hotel in anticipation of his performance at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, one of the largest EDM gatherings in the world.

Currently, Avicii is still scheduled to perform at the main event.

We will continue to provide updates on this story as more details become available.
