Superstar DJ Avicii is out of a Miami hospital after a mystery illness sent him there on Thursday evening on the eve of the Ultra Music Festival.

At press time there was little information on what is ailing the 24-year-old Swedish DJ (born Tim Berling), who was slated to play a headlining Ultra warm-up gig at the SLS Hotel in Miami Beach Thursday night.

TMZ reported that Avicii was discharged from an area hospital early Thursday night and that he was no longer a guest at the SLS, which had erected a giant sign spelling out his name above their logo to rebrand the hotel in commemoration of his gig.

A spokesperson for Avicii could not be reached for comment at press time and the DJ had not updated his social media accounts with any comment on the incident.

Less than an hour before Avicii was slated to take the stage at Hyde Beach at the SLS, DJ Cassette told the crowd that Berling had been taken to the hospital. A source told the site that it appeared Avicii was going to perform, but that the cancellation happened at the last minute.
