Joining the collection of already astonishing talent includes Afrojack, Alan Walker, Benny Benassi, Blasterjaxx, Chuckie, Craig David (Presents TS5), Duke Dumont, Erick Morillo, Galantis, Gui Boratto, Idris Elba, Nicole Moudaber, Ookay, Quintino, Ricardo Villalobos, Salvatore Ganacci, Tujamo, and Ummet Ozcan.

While the festival has yet to deliver on its potential Swedish House Mafia booking, time shall tell whether the festival delivers on the “unexpected,” as it has confirmed plans to continue rolling out artists into the week.

Is Tomorrowland cryptically teasing a Swedish House Mafia performance?

For months, Ultra Music Festival had been saying “expect the unexpected” leading up to its 20th anniversary celebration. While many believed the phrase to mean Daft Punk was planning a return to the festival circuit, viral rumors all but confirmed a Swedish House Mafia reunion. After all, the iconic Swedish trio hadn’t performed together since their One Last Tour in 2013, with Steve Angello stating to HuffPost, “I just wasn’t having fun anymore. It was this humongous monster. We felt…tired.”

In addition to premiering three unreleased songs at Ultra 20, Axwell concluded their set by saying, “We are Swedish House Mafia for life this time.” Steve Angello’s talent manager, Scooter Braun, then took to his Instagram story following the set, and hinted, essentially confirming that Sunday’s SHM reunion was “the beginning” of something much larger.

I think it’s more or less confirmed that this was not a one time thing

Fans immediately began speculating over whether an arena world tour was in the works, or a possible summer festival run, despite the fact that most large festival bookings have been finalized for the 2018 season.

Following the SMH reunion at Ultra Miami last weekend, Tomorrowland may have further fueled fan hopes when they posted an image of the Belgian festival’s main stage on Twitter with the caption, “expect the unexpected.” The tagline is the exact same phrase that Ultra used when announcing the “secret guest” slot for it’s 20th edition.

Nothing has been confirmed, and the tweet has since been deleted, but the coin of phrase has sparked controversy that another secret guest appearance by SHM may be in the programming for Tomorrowland’s 2018 edition, “The Story Of Planaxis.”

Despite the Belgian festival’s expansion last year, Tomorrowland sold out 400,000 tickets over two weekends within 64 minutes.

Tomorrowland 2018 is shaping up to be the festival’s most jam-packed lineup yet, with recent additions Dua LipaNervoLil PumpSam Feldt Live, Rødhåd b2b ÂmeSlushii, and Steve Aoki joining an already monstrous bill. Stage hosts include Martin Garrix‘s STMPD RCRDS, Eric Prydz‘s Pryda Arena, Adam Beyer & Ida Engberg‘s Drumcode, Monstercat, and Charlotte De Witte‘s KNTXT techno concept.

One of the largest, most illustrious music festivals in the business, Tomorrowland has released its first bill of names for both its July 20–22 and July 27–29 dates. The Belgian blowout will feature household names from years past, such as Armin van Buuren and Axwell / Ingrosso slated to perform at the trance and main stages, respectively, as well as fresh-faced up-and-comers like Rezz, who will be found goggle-eyed at the Monstercat stage. The preliminary lineup is intriguing, but still leaves ample spots for six days of festival to be filled in the coming weeks.
