After sustaining a bad ankle injury in Las Vegas on May 25th, the bad news continues as the injury has understandably caused Martin to cancel upcoming shows. In a press statement to his social media, it’s confirmed that “ankle ligaments are torn and surgery is needed to prevent permanent damage to his ankle“.
The initial injury did look bad and this information as well as Martin wearing a moon boot in the shared image solidifies that news.
Shows that Martin Garrix will likely miss:
Ultra Korea 7/06
Ultra Singapore 8/06
Spring Awakening Festival (Chicago) 9/06
Martin Garrix For War Child (Amsterdam) 13/06
There are more dates in North America and Europe in the not so distant future. Without a time frame on his return, we’re unsure of what exact shows will be cancelled.
Martin Garrix was performing at Omnia in Las Vegas for his residency when he unfortunately encountered a mid show mishap, reportedly injuring his ankle jumping off stage. Having not realised how bad it was, he tried to continue his set, but the injury was just too painful and may have gotten worse without attention. In the end he had to cut his performance short in order to go to the hospital via ambulance.
Let’s hope Martin Garrix can get back on his feet and back playing shows when he’s healed!

Press Statement: Martin Garrix forced to cancel all shows coming weeks
It is with deepest regrets that Martin Garrix has to announce that he is forced to cancel all his shows the coming weeks due to a serious ankle injury suffered during his show in Las Vegas on May 25th.
Even though feeling positive after some days of rest, further examinations have determined that all his ankle ligaments are torn and surgery is needed to prevent permanent damage to his ankle. Therefore Garrix is forced to follow the specialist’s advice and cancel all his shows for at least the upcoming four weeks.
Garrix: ’’I’m devastated that I have to cancel these shows since nothing makes me happier than performing for you guys. I feel most alive when I’m on stage, seeing you guys smile. I was really looking forward to it and I never want to disappoint my fans. Unfortunately this is out of my control and I will need a surgery and enough rest to fully recover. If I won’t get surgery now I might permanently damage my ankle, which could mean I won’t be able to perform at all anymore. I want to thank everyone for their continuous support and I hope to be able to get back on stage to perform for you guys again really soon.’’
