Just last week, Sam Feldt was involved in a scooter crash which left him hospitalized with a broken knee and other bones in his right leg. As a result, the Dutch DJ/producer/artist was forced to initially cancel an appearance at Indian Summer Festival in Noord-Holland.

Due to his sustained injuries, Feldt will need to undergo surgery on July 12th, followed by six weeks of much needed rest and rehabilitation. These circumstances have caused him to cancel all all of his July and August festival dates as well as his own tour.

Prior to the accident Feldt had a full summer planned with appearances scheduled at the Tomorrowland mainstage, Parookaville, Sziget, Sensation Bangkok, Nature One, and Black Sheep Festival. Sam wrote the following statement to his fans:

Dear fans,

Thanks for all the love and support – as you might have noticed I have been off the radar for the past week to rest and to process what has happened. Your kind words and wishes really helped me a lot. I just came back from the hospital and received some more info from the doctors.

Unfortunately, during my recent scooter accident I sustained a tibial plateau fracture, which is a nasty break in the upper part of my lower leg. I need surgery to be able to heal properly, which is scheduled for Thursday July 12th.

After surgery, at least 6 weeks of rest and revalidation are needed. Therefore I’m very sad to announce I won’t be playing any of the announced summer tour dates up until the 23rd of August. I’ll keep you updated about my surgery and recovery and when there is news to share you guys will be the first to know.

I can’t put into words how sad I am about cancelling these shows and the whole situation. I am deeply sorry to all my fans that were looking forward to seeing me and the band live. Me and my team are working really hard together with promoters to reschedule the shows to a later date.

All I can do now is take my rest and hope for a smooth and good recovery. I can’t wait for the moment to rock on stage once again!

Much love,

Sam Feldt
