Swedish House Mafia confirm reunion with surprise performance at Ultra Festival

Don't you worry, child....

Swedish House Mafia have confirmed their reunion by making a surprise performance at Miami’s Ultra Festival last night.

The EDM group, comprised of Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello, appeared onstage from darkness before confirming their return to the crowd.

“”I am Axwell, I am Sebastian Ingrosso, and I am Steve Angelo,” the group said.


“And Miami, tonight we go by Swedish House Mafia.”

They then proceeded to deliver a career-spanning  set that included ‘Save The World’, ‘Miami 2 Ibiza’ and ‘Greyhound’, before closing the set with a firework packed rendition of ‘One’.

Fittingly, the festival also previously played host to the group’s last gig prior to their split in 2013.

When asked why the EDM trio had decided to reunite, the group replied: “It is time”.

The reunion follows months of fevered speculation about a potential reunion, with their logo being spotted on the streets of Miami in recent weeks.

In 2016, Axwell also admitted that he was open to the idea of reuniting the group in the future.

“I think we’re all in our happy places right now. Having said that it would be stupid of me to say never [to a reunion]”, he admitted.

“Maybe one day something will happen inside of us that says ‘boom’. But it’s more [likely to be] coming from us than at a festival.”
