Ultra Music Festival turned out to be a bit of a rollercoaster of a weekend for everyone this year but, as usual, it's been three days of some of the most explosive electronic acts of our generation.

It was a terribly disappointing moment for festival goers (and, indeed, viewers; those who were viewing it live online) when it was announced that Saturday's main stage headliner Avicii would not make it to Miami for his set after being hospitalised earlier in the week for an emergency operation. However, that initial fan frustration was greatly eased by the arrival of Deadmau5, who took the Swedish DJ's place to much delightful surprise. Further entertainment came with some eagerly anticipated headline sets from Tiesto and Hardwell on the Friday and Sunday respectively.

Avicii Ultra Music Festival

Internationally renown DJ, Avicii, was forced out of his highly anticipated Saturday night slot at Ultra Music Festival after being hospitalized in Miami on Thursday afternoon due severe abdominal pain, nausea and fever from a blocked gall bladder.

Avicci – real name Tim Bergling – has emerged as a burgeoning force for dance music, and his withdrawal wasn't only a disappointment for excited fans, but also the people behind Ultra Music Festical, who were presumably deeply fustraed at losing their marquee star so close to his cancelled headline spot.

Two Hospital Cases Linked To Ultra Festival - Security Guard & Avicii


Avicii Ultra Music Festival

Ultra, the Miami music festival, has been the focus of reports following one performer's admittance into hospital. Unfortunately Avicii, the Swedish DJ in question, is not the only person associated with the festival to have been hospitalised.

Avicii was hospitalised in Miami on Friday (28th March) after experiencing stomach pain.

Sadly a private security guard is in a "critical condition" following an incident at one of the gates in which members of the public without a ticket attempted to gain access to the festival arena. 28-year-old Erika Mack was admitted to hospital with severe brain haemorrhaging after being trampled by a crowd clamouring for admittance to the event on Friday (28th March). Reports in the Miami Herald suggest Mack was last seen with, what appeared to be a broken leg, and blood coming out of her ears. Following the incident, which occurred at approximately 8pm yesterday evening, Mack was rushed to Jackson Memorial hospital.

America's favourite EDM fest The Ultra Music Festival have rounded off their last weekend with an impressive line-up.

We expected nothing less than exhilarating, flawless electronic finery from Ultra's uber exciting 2013 2-weekend line-up and neither weekend's artists held back at all as they hit Miami's Bayfront Park full of enthusiasm. Weekend 2's line-up saw a sting of disc jockey legends including double Grammy winner David Guetta, DJ royalty Fatboy Slim, the more recent chart sensation Deadmau5 and the Gold-selling Calvin Harris. Other attendees included Afrojack, who recently remixed Psy's YouTube hit 'Gangnam Style', Dutch sensation Armin Van Buuren, Italian DJ Benni Benassi and out latest electronic music heroes Zeds Dead. Snoop Lion (aka Snoop Dogg) became the highlight of weekend 1, however, and he probably felt right at home having collaborated with many artists on the bill.
