Going directly to the hospital for stomach related issues after landing in Brisbane, Avicii has had to regrettably cancel his headlining shows at both the Brisbane and Perth Future Music 2013 Festivals.
“It is with deep regret that we inform you of the decision to cancel Avicii’s performances at Future Music Festival in Brisbane and Perth,” FMF stated. “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 which means he will sadly be unable to appear tonight or at tomorrow’s festival.”
Future has advised that the headliner “looks forward to playing the remaining shows next weekend” and will be replaced by Hardwell for the time being, who will play extended sets for the Perth and Brisbane shows.
The much anticipated Coachella 2013 lineup was officially announced the other day, putting an end to speculation and rumours and delivering a monster lineup as per usual. This year the Stone Roses, Blur, Phoenix and the RedHotChiliPeppers are the headlining acts but there are plenty of EDM artists and DJ’s to keep you going as well, including Bassnectar, DogBlood, NickyRomero, TommyTrash, KnifeParty, BennyBenassi, MajorLazer, FreddieLe Grand, Pretty Lights, Eric Prydz, Hardwell, Paul Okenfold, Adrian Lux and more!!
The festival is held on two weekends this year – April 12-14 and April 19-21 and passes go on sale Tuesday January 29th at 10.00am PT from this website.
The most memorable moment from last years Coachella would definitely have to be Tupac’s holographic appearance! Who know’s what surprise await for this years Coachella!!
Avicii only just toured Australia with Stereosonic at the end of last year but no one will be complaining to have him back in March! With less than seven weeks to go I’m sure that we aren’t the only ones counting down until we get to see Avicii again! If you live around Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne or Perth and don’t already have tickets, sort them out because Future is going to be a day you will not want to miss!!
MTV Clubland had fans vote for their favourite electronic dance music video from 2012 and Jake Stanczak aka Kill The Noise took out this title last week for his Kill The Noise Part 1 clip.
Stanczak thought Kill The Noise had zero chance a against the other big name artists such as Diplo, Alesso, Cazzette and Steve Aoki. However, it’s easy to see how this video directed by Mike Diva won. It is set in the year 2054, after an apocalyptic virus called ‘the noise’ has taken over and survivors must battle against the infected and their overlord. The video features a tonne of special effects, makeup and costumes to bring these infected zombies to life and convey the story.
2013 is set to be an even bigger year for Kill The Noise, with work having already begun on the Kill The Noise Part 2 video alongside animator Lee Hardcastle. Kill The Noise will also have a heavy touring schedule for next year, kicking off with the Holy Ship festival on Janurary 4 before heading to Peru January 7 and then down under to Australia to tour with Future Music festival in March.
Hard music festival presents the electronic dance music cruise Holy Ship! The cruise departs Lauderdale on January 4 before cruising through the Bahamas, stopping at Nassau on day two and Private Island on day three, then returning to Lauderdale on the 7th. Activities, workshops and excursions are offered during the day before the party kicks off at 6pm across five onboard venues with performances from world class DJ’s until 6am.
The line up for 2013 boasts Justice, Boys Noize, Knife Party, Major Lazer, Diplo, A-Trak, Skream & Benga, Busy P, Zedd, Tommy Trash, Kill the Noise, plus many more!!
For those fortunate enough to have tickets to this sold out event, it will be a huge way to start the new year!!
