Swedish producer Avicii has reportedly been hospitalised in Miami.

Billboard reports that the EDM DJ was due to perform at SLS South Beach in Miami Beach, but support act Cazzette informed the audience moments before he was due to arrive on stage that Avicii would not be appearing, explaining that he had been admitted to hospital. There is currently no word on what caused the trip to the medical facility, though it is reported he has since been discharged.

Avicii's appearance at SLS South Beach was due to be the second of a five-night set at the Florida venue. The DJ is also scheduled to headline Miami's Ultra Music Festival tonight (March 28).

Earlier this year it was confirmed that Madonna is working with Avicii. Writing on Twitter and Instagram, the pop singer said: "The End of a long week with Viking Leader AKA DJ Virgo AKA Avicii! So many great songs! #icantwait #revolution". The words captioned a photo of the two artists together in the studio.

Avicii released his debut album 'True' in September 2013. It features the chart-topping singles 'Wake Me Up' and 'Hey Brother.' 'Wake Me Up' debuted in at Number One in the Official UK Singles Chart back in July 2013, and it became the fastest selling single of 2013 after shifting 267,000 copies in its first week on sale. The song then spent three consecutive weeks at the top.
