Next to further the speculation is Dutch powerhouse Oliver Heldens, who let slip a confirmation of the group’s reunion and world tour while introducing a classic track in his Heldeep radio show.
“So, Swedish House Mafia have now officially reformed, and are announcing a World Tour in 2019,” he says during the show. “This week’s Heldeep classic was made in 2007 by two thirds of Swedish House Mafia. This is Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso with ‘Together.’”
The trio haven’t officially announced the world tour themselves yet, but the continued rumors and sources are keeping fans waiting with bated breath.
Again demonstrating its ubiquitous presence as a worldwide festival phenomenon, Ultra has locked in a stellar, multifaceted-as-ever billing for its fifth anniversary of the global festival’s Japan installment, to take place over an extended weekend on September 15-17.
Topping phase one of the 2018 bill are high-rollers Nicky Romero, DJ Snake, Armin Van Buuren, and Zedd, as well as all three parties from Swedish House Mafia, though they appear as their separate, respective acts: Axwell Λ Ingrosso and Steve Angello. Having the Mafiosos in the same place at the same time begs the question of whether fans could witness a surprise performance from the storied threesome who reunited earlier this year at Ultra’s flagship location in Miami. The initial wave of talent also includes the likes of Oliver Heldens, Cash Cash, and Eats Everything among others.
The Tokyo-based festival will return to Odaiba Ultra Park. Tickets can be purchased here.
Steve Angello just played one of the most incredible sets in recent memory at Ultra Europe.

For the 20th edition of Ultra Music Festival, the event’s organizers surprised the world by brining back Swedish House Mafia for the first time since their retirement as a group. Despite what seemed like just a one-off performance, Steve Angello revealed that “In 2019, We’re Back [Swedish House Mafia].” Just recently, Axwell / Ingrosso released
The billboard shows the artwork for “Dancing Alone” followed by an error message and the Mafia’s ubiquitous, signature white dots. Axwell Λ Ingrosso hinted at the trio touring at New York’s Brooklyn Mirage on Memorial Day. The next month, Steve Angello confirmed the trio will be touring together next year. The Swedish dance icons’ last performance was a lauded reunion at Ultra Music Festival this year. Before that, they branded their performance at Ultra Music Festival 2013 as their final show before the trio bisbanded. Now, Swedish House Mafia is back and ready to take fans by storm, and the new billboard could signal to “Dancing Alone” being the end of Swedish House Mafia’s hiatus.
It has been over two months since Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell took the stage at Ultra Music Festival to reunite as Swedish House Mafia. The set was legendary. Not only did they play all the hits, but they also debuted new music. Some of which would be featured on Steve Angello’s magus opus,
Swedish House Mafia‘s reunion at Ultra 20 left all fans of the supergroup with one question that would lingered since the trio stepped away from the decks in Miami: what is SHM’s next move, presuming, of course, that there would be a next move?
SHM’s recent removal of all posts previously shared on their official Instagram page seemed to lend credibility to suspicion surrounding an extended SHM reunion, but now, Steve Angello has confirmed that the mafia’s Miami re-appearance wasn’t just a one-off performance.
“It’s happening, of course,” Angello stated in an interview with Sydsvenskan, “All details aren’t set, but in 2019 we are back!”
So ‘don’t you worry,’ SHM fans, the boys are back, and they’re here to stay.
One of the biggest storylines of 2018 has been the return of Swedish House Mafia. The trio reunited at Ultra Miami and immediately the world went crazy with Swedish fever.

Last night, Swedish superstars and 2/3rds of Swedish House Mafia, Axwell & Ingrosso, played a mammoth show at the Brooklyn Mirage in New York City.
