If you were hoping to catch Eric Prydz — AKA Pryda or Cirez D — at Ultra Music Festival or his highly anticipated show at Wynwood Factory, bad news. Last night, he announced on Twitter that because of a medical issue, he won't make it to Miami this year.

"I am really sorry but due to an acute medical condition I am unable to travel or perform in Miami this week. I am truly gutted to miss any shows but especially Miami as this is one of my favourite times of the year," the Swedish DJ/producer tweeted.

Prydz's representative confirmed the cancellation.

The response to his announcement has been mainly good wishes and hopes of a speedy recovery. "Very saddening I love you’re [sic] music so much," one fan wrote. "But I genuinely hope you get well soon, see you next time."

Regarding Prydz's show at Wynwood Factory, the event promoter, Humans Alike, announced on Facebook that ticket holders would receive a complimentary one-week pass to Wynwood Factory's Miami Music Week events (entry before midnight), along with a full refund.

Prydz was also set to perform at Ultra as Cirez D alongside Adam Beyer at the Carl Cox Megastructure Friday, March 29, and on the A State of Trance stage Sunday, March 31. New Times has contacted Ultra about who will perform in Prydz's absence. This post will be updated when more information becomes available.
