Its one of the busiest week in EDM and in Miami with Winter Music Conference, Ultra and the endless list of Miami Music Week events.
Well, something seems to be in the water down here or something because weird things have been happening the last couple days with a few health related disturbances for two of your favorite DJs Avicii and Afrojack and a third incident involving Laidback Luke.

Swedish DJ Avicii, who has taken over the SLS Hotel South Beach for his annual Avicii Hotel phenomenon, was reportedly taken to the hospital where he is still hospitalized and treated for a blocked gall bladder (more info here). This however forced one of his shows at the SLS to be cancelled upsetting tons and tons of fans and ticket holders (some of which are thousands and thousands of dollars). And word just broke that he has cancelled all his remaining shows for the week and his friend Deadmau5 will fill in for him during his previously scheduled Ultra performance.

Now for DJ #2. Afrojack was at the Dim Mak Beach Party on Wednesday and was leaning on the edge of the stage when he tripped and banged his head on the concrete. Luckily he was not hurt, but you can imagine it was a painful moment for the Netherlands born DJ. – (TMZ)

And lastly while this is not health related, Filipino-Dutch DJ Laidback Luke had to cancel his shows as his wife Gina Turner went into labor. So of course Luke had to play the daddy role and drop everything he was doing to be by her side. So no Kung Fu Class and no Ultra.
