After a scooter accident landed him in the hospital, Sam Feldt has been forced to cancel his summer tour dates. 


If you had plans to catch Dutch DJ and Producer Sam Feldt this summer, we have some bad news. A joyride on the artist’s scooter in his hometown turned sour last week when an accident landed him in the hospital with a broken leg, among other injuries. Now, Feldt has announced that due to the severity of the injury, he’s been unfortunately forced to cancel all of his summer tour dates throughout the remainder of July and August.

Prior to the accident, Sam Feldt was billed to play several summer festivals, including the main stage at Tomorrowland, Parookaville, Sziget, Sensation Bangkok, Nature One, and Black Sheep Festival. Although Feldt will no longer be in attendance, the festivals will individually release statements announcing his replacements.

Along with a heartbreaking Instagram post picturing a surprisingly chipper-looking Feldt with his full leg cast in the hospital, Sam released the following statement addressed to the Heartfeldt community:

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 


Thankfully for his fans, Feldt’s music releases will not be affected by the incident and are set to roll out as normally scheduled.

His latest track, a remix of SYML’s “Where’s My Love” is a chill summer banger perfect for any vacation getaway you have planned this summer. We’ll be listening to it on repeat and hoping for a speedy recovery after Feldt’s scheduled July 12th surgery.

Get well soon Sam! And don’t worry, we forgive you for having to cancel because honestly, who could get mad at a face like this??
