Recently, Martin Garrix announced that all of his upcoming shows for the next few weeks are unfortunately canceled. This comes after a painful ankle injury, that needs surgery to fix. Martin was originally slated to appear at Ultra Korea this coming weekend, however, that is canceled as well.
Taking his place in the closing slot of the mainstage for Ultra Korea will be Porter Robinson. He tweeted out the news that he will be performing a Porter Robinson DJ set. However, that’s not even the best part. He then added that he was already scheduled to play the festival as his side project, Virtual Self.
“that means I’ll be playing two completely different sets in a row on the mainstage!”
This is obviously horrible news for Martin Garrix fans, however, it’s great news for fans of Porter Robinson and the festival. And as someone on twitter noted, Virtual Self b2b Porter Robinson is finally a thing.
Porter ended his string of tweets by asking Martin to please rest up and feel better. That’s a sentiment that we can surely get behind. We wish Martin a fast and easy recovery.
If you’re attending Ultra Korea, you can catch Virtual Self from 7:55-9:25 and Porter’s DJ set from 9:30-10:30.
