Swedish House Mafia

BREAKING: Creamfields hint at Swedish House Mafia as 2019 headliners

With Swedish House Mafia posters popping up in random cities over the course of 2018, it seems as though the group have now finally confirmed a long-awaited UK show. With posters appearing in Miami ahead of SHM’s performance at Ultra Music Festival 2018, the posters soon emerged again in Stockholm (where the trio will play in May 2019), and then again, in Mexico City. (With a show confirmed here for May 2019, too.)

Now, posters have emerged around Manchester which state ‘WA4’ on them, the postcode of the UK’s biggest dance festival, Creamfields. Though many believed these posters to be fakes at first, the official Creamfields Facebook page has all-but-confirmed the news with a post just now, which states how happy they are to return to ‘WA4’ this year. The cheeky hint follows Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso‘s performance at the event this summer, when upon leaving the stage, Axwell shouted “To be continued” down the mic, as the iconic three dots of the Swedish House Mafia logo lit up the Arc stage.

Though Creamfields usually announce the festival’s full line-up in February each year, they broke tradition last year by announcing Carl Cox in December 2017, two months before revealing the rest of the line-up. It appears that, due to the size of Swedish House Mafia, they may pull a similar stunt this time around, with the return of Angello, Ingrosso, and Axwell, marking their first show on UK soil since July 2012, when they filmed the video for ‘Don’t You Worry Child’ in front of 60,000 fans at the sold-out MK Bowl.

You can catch the posters below, as well as Creamfields dropping the huge hint on their Facebook, and the moment that Axwell teased the SHM return:
