If you’re in Australia and planned on seeing Avicii at the Future Music Festival, you might need to reschedule your DJ plans. Avicii’s camp revealed earlier today that he had to cancel his appearances due to an illness he suffered when he hit Brisbane.

It is with deep regret to inform you of the decision to cancel Avicii’s performances at Future Music Festivals in Brisbane and Perth. Avicii went directly to the hospital upon landing in Brisbane for stomach related issues. He has been hospitalised since then. Over the past couple of days we have been monitoring his condition and we have all been optimistic about him being healthy enough to perform.

Unfortunately the doctors are not willing to discharge him at this time so he will be unable to appear at tonight and tomorrow’s performances.

Avicii will continue to rest throughout this week and looks forward to playing the remaining shows on this tour.

Future Music Festival hits Perth tomorrow, followed by Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide next week.

We’re not sure if this will hinder his “Diplo & Friends” appearance tonight (although we’re under the impression that those mixes are pre-recorded), but he is expected to hit his three tour dates in March:

SYDNEY – Saturday 9th March 2013
MELBOURNE – Sunday 10th March 2013
ADELAIDE – Monday 11th March 2013
