In recent times, beloved Avicii has been suffering from gallbladder related issues which eventually led to surgery. This was confirmed on twitter, “I’m sorry for having to postpone the shows this month, I sincerely wish I didn’t have to but unfortunately there’s no going around it. Health must always come first and in this case especially after my ruptured appendix that got removed, doctor’s orders have been really strict.” It explains why he bailed from his Ultra Music Festival performance and continues the pattern in Vegas this month. In his place, Zedd will perform on the 18th and Deamau5 on the 25th of April at SX, Las Vegas.
Deadmau5 is no stranger to filling in for Mr. Bergling, having replaced him at UMF this year. It’s been since last November that we saw Deamau5’s face and/or Mau5head in Vegas. He will surprisingly bring his be-headed Mau5head, “Unhooked” set to SX. The set has previously been known to mix Rage Against with March to Dr. Dre, and drop techno tracks from artists outside himself.
If you’re in town, I dare you to resist staying the month with acts such as Wolfgang Gartner, Diplo, Zedd and RL Grime painting the strip. If not, you can still catch Deamau5 at SonneMondSterne in Germany, Pukkelpop in Belgium and Creamfields UK later this year. I say glass half full now more so than ever after having streamed his live studio set at home last week.
All in all, it’s always a comforting thought to know that DJ’s are human too. We wish Avicii a speedy recovery.
We’re a little late on this one (surfaced at the start of March), but you always get a little bit of guilty pleasure ecking out celebs exorbitant spending/lifestyles. Consequently, we thought we’d share with you a few snaps of Avicii’s mad new crib that rests up in the Hollywood Hills and comes in at a mere $15.5 million. The 24 year old reportedly earned a tidy $20 million last year, so not a bad investment. $waggin’ to the max!
The young Swede’s fresh pad is a beastly 7,000 square ft, boasting 6 bedroom, 7 bathrooms, a pimped swimming pool and a pretty overwhelming panoramic view of the LA skyline. No sign of a studio set up yet though. Not too bad ay.
Last year Calvin Harris also invested in a ridiculous party pad in the City of Angels – who’s got it better? Just remember kids, cheese pays. Check it out.

The onslaught of drugged-up orgies and random sexual encounters at this year’s Ultra Music Festival will be THAT much safer with the announcement of Avicii branded condoms as part of his merchandise offering at the dance festival.
One upping pairs of Avicii converse in 2012 and even his own named hotel in 2013, you’ll now be able to reach those ‘Levels’ after slipping some rubber over your “Dear Boy” and hope she ain’t a “Lair Lair” – here all week folks.
Admitably the idea of letting a Swedish fellow near your donger is probably reason enough to avoid the whole sex-capade altogether.
With manager Ash Pournouri weighing in ”We don’t take ourselves too seriously. There’s so much noise in the space of electronic music. If you want to grow and establish anything you have to be different.”
Ultra Music Festival have announced the full lineup with the backward wearing yahoo joined by big man Carl Cox, Jamies Jones, Above & Beyond, Kaskade and more all set for March 28th.
All this funny business follows on from the meta overload of an Avicii remix album remixed entirely by… Avicii and that Rick Asterly x Wake Me Up mashup, that kinda, sorta works.
