One of the biggest stars in the world of electronic dance music will get his shot at Ultra Music Festival after all. Dutch DJ Hardwell has been slotted for a main stage set on Saturday night, making up for his canceled performance on Friday due to dangerous thunderstorms that forced an evacuation of the festival grounds.

The confirmation came via X (formerly Twitter) on Saturday afternoon, with Hardwell excitedly announcing “🚨🚨🚨 BREAKING NEWS: @ULTRA MAINSTAGE TONIGHT 7:25 – 08:40!!!!! LFG!!!!!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥”

His scheduled 9:15 PM main stage set on Friday’s opening night of the three-day festival in downtown Miami was one of many that had to be scrapped after severe storms rolled through the area. Organizers made the call to clear Bayfront Park and suspend operations as lightning, heavy rain, and high winds created unsafe conditions.

In the aftermath on Friday night, a crestfallen Hardwell took to X (formerly Twitter) to express his devastation, writing “I’m crying right now, 3 months of work by the team and myself. Wow….

The renowned Dutch DJ had spent months preparing an elaborate production for his Friday night headlining performance at one of the biggest dance music events in the world.

But Hardwell and his fans will get a second opportunity on Saturday after Ultra organizers worked quickly to reset the festival schedule and grounds following the storm’s flooding impacts.

The rescheduled 75-minute set will take place from 7:25 PM to 8:40 PM tonight on Ultra’s flagship main stage.

Hardwell’s high-energy performance should provide an electrifying boost for the festival after a rough start to the weekend. More schedule updates are expected throughout the day on Saturday as Ultra works to accommodate other artists impacted by canceled sets.

This is a developing story and schedules are still being finalized. Check back for the latest updates from the Ultra Music Festival grounds in Miami.
