As Martin Garrix continues his road to recovery after suffering a nasty ankle injury on stage, fellow DJ/producers are stepping in to fulfill his headlining spots.
Just recently, Porter Robinson played a DJ set at Ultra Korea, because Garrix was unable to be there. Now, Escapade has announced Tiësto will take over the main stage as the Canadian festival’s Sunday night closer.
“None other than @tiesto has stepped in to headline,” the festival shares in a post. The official Instagram account adds, “11 days to go until the BIGGEST Escapade ever!”
From the sounds of it, Tiësto is happy to perform despite the unfortunate circumstances. “I am super excited to come and party with y’all!!” he writes in a comment.
Garrix was forced to cancel all his shows the coming weeks due to a serious ankle injury suffered during his show in Las Vegas on May 25. He’s expected to be out for at least four weeks following the incident.
Escapade takes place June 22 and 23 — celebrating 10 years.
