Did Swedish House Mafia just confirm an Ultra appearance?
Ultra Music Festival’s advice that attendees of the festival’s 20th birthday celebration should “expect the unexpected” has not gone unheeded.
In the months leading up to the flagship Miami edition’s landmark iteration, ticket holders have collectively made conjectures that the mystery “special anniversary performance” touted by the lineup would be a rare reunion of Steve Angello, Axwell, and Sebastian Ingrosso for an exclusive appearance as Swedish House Mafia.
If rumors are true, the performance would be the defunct group’s first performance together since their split on March 24, 2013. Those planning to attend Ultra Music Festival’s 20th anniversary, slated for March 23–25 at Ultra’s longtime home of Bayfront Park, have further speculated that Swedish House Mafia would deliver such a “special anniversary performance” on March 24, 2018, in tribute to the mega-group’s 2013 separation.
Naturally, when Steve Angello posted an Instagram that depicts what looks very much like the background of Bayfront Park on March 2, ticket holders noticed.
And when Swedish House Mafia updated their Facebook cover photo to an image of three black spray painted dots approximately one-hour later, ticket holders again noticed.
Neither Swedish House Mafia, nor Ultra Music Festival have released any information regarding the possibility of an SHM reunion, but by all speculative accounts, the social media activity seems to signal that the group will indeed reconvene later this March, in Miami.
