Hardwell: a Swedish House Mafia reunion at Ultra ‘has to happen’ [Watch]
Netherlands radio station,SLAM! recently got Hardwell on the phone to talk Miami Music Week, his upcoming Main Stage slot at Ultra Music Festival‘s opening day on Friday, March 23, and, of course, speculation that Swedish House Mafia will reconvene for a special anniversary performance.
“Most of the DJs have some free time in January and February, and that results in new music,” Hardwell said when asked if he would debut unreleased material in Ultra tradition during his headlining set. “I made lots of new music and I’m going to play [it] on Friday,” Hardwell added.
And like many ticket holders, Hardwell is holding out for an SHM reunion. “I think it’s going to happen,” Hardwell stated in response to the question as to whether he believed the Swedish super group would indeed appear at Ultra 20. “There are a lot of rumors, the deciding factor for me was that Steve Angello, one of the three members of SHM, cancelled his Asia tour out of the blue, suddenly doesn’t have any shows planned, and is now in Miami. For me, this means that it has to happen.”
