Swedish House Mafia reunited after a five-year hiatus this evening (Sunday 25th March) to close out Ultra Music Festival’s 20th anniversary celebrations in Miami.
The famous trio, consisting of Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello, played the final set on the main stage during Ultra’s third day, opening the set with their mega-hit ‘Miami 2 Ibiza’. It’s been five years since the Swedish DJs played together as a group, with the trio playing the final performance of their ‘One Last Tour’ shows on Ultra’s main stage back in 2010.
Rumours that SHM would reunite at Ultra have been circulating for the past few months, despite several statements denying the reunion from the group’s manager Amy Thomsonand SHM member Steve Angello.
Dutch EDM DJ Hardwell and Don Diablo also weighed in on the debate over the last seven days, while reddit users claimed to have cracked a secret code which revealed SHM as Sunday’s surprise act, plus supposed headline sets from Deadmau5 and French duo Daft Punk.
Earlier today, a reunion was all but confirmed by friends and collaborators of the groupvia Instagram, while new and simplified SHM logos have been popping up around Miami over the last 24 hours.
