Swedish House Mafia ultra music festival reunion 2018

Hardwell believes Swedish House Mafia will close Ultra this weekend

With Ultra Miami less than 72 hours away, fans are more excited than ever. With Sunday’s headliner still unbeknownst to the general public, the rumour mill is going into overdrive. Names such as Daft Punkdeadmau5 and Swedish House Mafia have all been frequently name-dropped, however, deadmau5 recently shut down fan theories by ruling himself out. Despite this, there are 2 names left, and Dutch superstar Hardwell might know the answer.

When asked if he believed the rumours were true, [roughly translated] Hardwell gave his opinion:

“Well honestly, I also think this. Do you know why I think this? I looked at the facts and the deciding factor for me was that Steve Angello, one of the three members of SHM, canceled his Asia tour out of the blue, suddenly doesn’t have any shows planned, and he is in Miami. For me, this means that it HAS to happen.”

In a recent interview with prominent Dutch radio station, Slam! FM, Hardwell believes that Swedish House Mafia will be the “unexpected” that fans have been told to expect. In addition to this, for those who aren’t sold on the idea, one of Axwell‘s former crew members added fuel to the fire via social media.

While the interview is in Dutch, auto-translated English captions can be turned on.
