Swedish House Mafia reunited for an unannounced headlining slot to close out Ultra Music Festival this past Sunday following weeks of on-going rumours. You can now watch their reunion set in its entirety and view their full tracklist below.
This was the first performance for the recently reunited SHM, composed of producers Steve Angello, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso, after a five-year hiatus. It’s a fitting stage as Ultra Music Festival, which this year celebrated its 20th anniversary, hosted the final Swedish House Mafia performance in 2013.
Despite denials from the group’s manager, Amy Thomson, and Steve Angello himself, rumours surrounding the Swedish House Mafia reunion have been circulating online and via social media leading up to Ultra Music Festival, with artists like Don Diablo and Hardwell and online Redditors fanning the flames. Friends and collaborators finally confirmed the reunion Sunday evening when they began posting even more hints to Instagram.
Still, last weekend might just be the beginning of a full-scale reunion. At the end of the performance, Axwell shouted into the microphone, “Ultra Miami, thank you for having us tonight. We’re Swedish House Mafia for life this time,” hinting at future plans — and new music — for the group.
Speaking of future plans, Ultra Worldwide next takes its Resistance concept to Mexico City for its first-ever standalone three-day festival in May followed by a nine-week Tuesday residency at Privilege this summer for Resistance Ibiza.
If you’re feeling nostalgic for some throwback Ultra vibes, watch episodes one and two of 20 Years of Ultra, the festival’s retrospective documentary series featuring archival footage from the first-ever Ultra and interviews with John Digweed, Tiësto, Hardwell, Josh Wink and many more.
For now, relive Swedish House Mafia’s full reunion set at Ultra Music Festival below. Want more musical goodness? Eric Prydz, Above & Beyond, Carl Cox and many others have also shared their Ultra Music Festival sets from last weekend.
