DJ Deadmau5 alias Joel Zimmerman musste am 30.Juli seine Performance in einem Washingtoner Nachtclub abbrechen und wurde mit Diagnose Erschöpfung in ein Krankehaus eingewiesen. Die Ärzte dort rieten ihm dringend eine Erholungsphase einzuhalten. Der knapp 3wöchigen Zwangspause fallen die nächsten 9 Shows des kanadischen Discjockeys zum Opfer. Darunter auch der Auftritt beim Sziget Festival. Fans des Frequency dagegen dürfen aufatmen. Nach aktuellem Stand der Dinge ist er bis  dahin wieder fit und einsatzfähig.

Die offizielle Verlautbarung seitens des Managments:

Last night, whilst performing onstage at the 9:30 club in Washington DC, deadmau5 collapsed, suffering exhaustion and vomiting. Medics at the venue took him directly to hospital where he is now under supervision
