UPDATE 3:54 PM PDT | Ultra has confirmed that Armin van Buuren will perform an extended set to replace Eric Prydz tonight.
Earlier this week, Eric Prydz was forced to cancel his Ultra Music Festival sets due to undisclosed medical issues. Now, rumors are buzzing as to who might take his spot tonight on the ASOT stage ahead of Armin van Buuren.
His first scheduled performance, a b2b as Cirez D shifted into a solo set by his counterpart, Adam Beyer. Makes sense. (Beyer’s set tonight, which was a solo set, is now a b2b with Maceo Plex.) Now, it’s rumored Porter Robinson will take his place as Virtual Self tonight on the ASOT stage. Seriously big shoes to fill in this case. But if anyone can do it — it’s Porter.
A series of tweets back up this theory. However, these rumors are purely speculation at this point. No official confirmation as of yet from Ultra or the artists involved. Stay tuned to see what happens.
As Ultra powers forward with its final night, we wish Prydz a speedy recovery wherever he might be. He’ll be greatly missed tonight.
