The Swedish House slow drip just sped up slightly with a firm confirmation on the trio’s headlining performance at Ultra Europe. Posters recently appeared in Split, Croatia, signaling the Mafia’s impending arrival. It didn’t take long before the group’s ubiquitous three-dot calling card appeared on Ultra Europe’s website, cementing Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Steve Angello‘s headlining appearance at this year’s festival.

To officially mark the announcement, Ultra has released a new hype video confirming the Mafia’s return, set to the trio’s Knife Party-assisted “Antidote“—with the nostalgia turned up to 11. Though, there may be more to Swedish House Mafia‘s Ultra Europe headline. With Ultra Europe now confirmed and posters recently also appearing in Seoul, the possibility of a lineup-topping performance at Ultra’s South Korea stop could also be likely. But if that’s the case, two international Ultra appearances seems like it could stack up to something greater. In 2016, deadmau5 hit the road with Ultra to cover six stops on their Worldwide circuit, and perhaps Swedish House Mafia is preparing for a similar run.

Dancing Astronaut has reached out to Swedish House Mafia’s management concerning a possible Ultra Worldwide tour, though at the time of publishing has not received a statement back. This story will be updated as it develops.

Swedish House Mafia continues to keep the world on its toes. Whether the trio are teasing new music or hinting at potential performance locations, there is never a lack of speculation when it comes to the group’s impending activities in 2019. The latest confirmation from the Mafia is a confirmed return to Ibiza this summer. Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Steve Angello took to Instagram to confirm this, posting, 26.7.19 on their stories.

This confirmation comes the week after their creative director, Alexander Wessely, sparked rumors about their impending return to the island after he posted a story searching for flights from Stockholm to Ibiza. It is currently unknown whether the trio’s Ibiza performance will be a single performance or the onset of a residency.

There is additional speculation that the group will be performing at Ultra Europe after posters scattered Split, and Tomorrowland currently has a hole in its weekend two Sunday lineup, leading many to believe they will be closing the second weekend of the festival as well.

Swedish House Mafia sets sights on Croatia for likely Ultra Europe appearance

It’s been a fair moment since the fabled Swedish House Mafia posters have appeared in a city to announce their arrival. Luckily they’re back, this time finding their way onto walls in Split, Croatia.

This can only mean one thing: the legendary trio are going to headline Ultra Europe. Their presence was conspicuously missing from Ultra Miami’s billing this year where they made their historic reunion, so it makes sense that other branches of the festival would be hosting them this time around. The timing also lines up with their speculated Tomorrowland surprise and their 2019 European summer in general, which also includes a headlining slot at Creamfields UK in August.

Ultra Europe takes place on July 12-14. Tickets can be found here.

For those that we’re able to make the pilgrimage to Croatia this year for the 2018 installment of Ultra Europe, fear not, a major festival highlight is now available for your viewing pleasure. The festival took place from July 6 to July 8, and, aside from trance king Armin Van Buuren, featured headliners such as Axwell / Ingrosso, DJ Snake, Galantis, The Chainsmokers, and more. Now, Armin fans can enjoy his full 93-minute live set from Ultra Europe on YouTube.

Attendees can relive the riveting experience while others are guaranteed a deserved dose of delayed FOMO, as the video captures everything from the suspenseful intro to Armin’s stunning visual effects. And, let’s face it, the veteran DJ icon’s signature full extension of his arms atop the stage is one of the most entertaining things to watch, it never gets old. Armin Van Buuren recently celebrated the 15th anniversary of his label Armada Music and he’s maintained a packed summer itinerary, heading to Belgium for Tomorrowland on July 21 and the UK for Creamfields on August 24.

American man, 26, dies after attending Ultra Europe in Croatia

It’s somewhat counter-intuitive to think of a musical festival, a place for unparalleled celebration, as a place from which one may never return. Nevertheless, year after year, due to exhaustion, overheating, and/or drugs, a small number of festival-goers tragically validate this bleak reality.

As Ultra Europe 2018, held in the Croatian city of Split, came to a close, a 26-year-old American man was confirmed dead after attending the festival. According to local authorities, after falling ill, the man was rushed to the hospital on Saturday, where he eventually died the following day. The U.S. State Department confirmed the death to Daily News, saying, “We extend our sincere condolences to friends and family. The U.S. Embassy in Croatia is providing consular assistance.”

The man’s official cause of death is still pending an autopsy.

It’s worth noting that over the weekend, temperatures reached over 86 degrees Fahrenheit in Split, making drug use especially risky, drastically increasing the likelihood of dehydration in any case. Local media reported that, in addition to the singular death, an additional 24 attendees were hospitalized, with 60 additional incidents requiring attention onsite. A whopping 305 individuals were arrested at Ultra, with one incarceration involving a man found with 49 kilograms of marijuana (roughly 108 pounds) on his person.

Ultra Europe‘s 2018 installment in Split, Croatia brought together some of the finest globetrotting DJs in the world — Afrojack, Axwell Λ Ingrosso, and DJ Snake, just to name a few. Now, with the festival in the review, Dancing Astronaut has gathered some of the highlights in their full set form.

Whether it was a set from a legend like Afrojack — who managed to drop six IDs in his set – or one of the masters like Hardwell, Carl Cox, and Steve Angello – who also treated fans to a delightful ID; Ultra Europe was far from a disappointment. The weekend was filled with incredibly touching moments as well as reminders of the indelible connection and emotive release that dance music coexists within, including Axwell ^ Ingrosso’s immensely touching tribute to Avicii.

Thanks to Mixcloud, everyone who was unable to attend can revel in the best of the best. It’s almost as if the desire to make it out next year wasn’t already tempting enough.

A repeat of Swedish House Mafia‘s March reunion at the 20th anniversary of Ultra Music Festival earlier in the year did not come to fruition at Ultra Europe, as many fans suspected, but Steve Angello nevertheless satiated SHM listeners’ already whet appetites for more SHM action with a suggestive set closing.

Not only did Angello debut an ethereal new ID, premiered alongside DJ duo, Still Young— Angello additionally left SHM fanatics with a little affirmation. “Swedish House Mafia loves you!” Angello exclaimed to the crowd as he finished his Main Stage set, an image of the Swedish power trio displayed on the stage’s back screen.

As Angello’s Ultra Europe actions indicate, a Swedish House Mafia reunion of the “for life” caliber remains in motion.

Lights, camera, action: couple caught having sex at Ultra Europe [Video]

This post was originally published on this site

Ultra Europe celebrated its fifth year of production this past weekend in Split, Croatia.

Though the lineup was enticing, featuring industry heavyweights such as David Guetta, Steve Angello, and Tiësto, it seems that the DJs booked for Ultra Europe’s fifth year wouldn’t be the only ones “performing” at the festival.

One couple proved to be a little more adventurous, or alternatively, a little more oblivious to their surroundings than most, venturing away from the set to satisfy their sexual urges. Yet, with thousands of people gathered in Split, privacy was not to be found, and the couple was subsequently caught doing the deed. While the probable embarrassment of being discovered is only temporary, YouTube videos have a bit of a longer life, making for a comical kind of cinematic souvenir for the filmed couple.

While details are scarce on the new tunes Garrix unleashed on his home continent, the very fact that the superstar is playing them out live would seem to indicate that they’re imminent.
