deadmau5 @ Ultra Music Festival 2016

When UK music legends The Prodigy had to cancel their appearance at Ultra Music Festival 2016 at the last moment, deadmau5 was there to save the day. And boy, did he ever.

The Prodigy posted a message on the band's Facebook page Friday night, stating "Due to doctors orders Maxim has been unable to travel nor perform in Miami this weekend resulting in the cancellation of The Prodigy performance. The band would like to apologise to all their fans." Thus, what would have been a rare U.S. performance was canceled, but being the powerful festival brand it is, Ultra pulled some strings and brought the masked mouse himself – deadmau5 – to the stage Saturday night to keep attendees raving and raving and raving.

You can watch deadmau5's entire hour-long performance above. In homage to the UK legends, he even whipped out a remix of "Smack My Bitch Up."
