Swedish House Mafia pay tribute to Ushuaïa after Ibiza return

Swedish House Mafia made their highly-anticipated return to Ibiza last weekend with an extraordinary performance on Friday July 26th at Ushuaïa Ibiza. It was their first show together at the venue since 2012, and this time, the Swedes brought a new and improved show back to the #1 open-air club for their long-awaited Ibiza comeback.

The trio – made up of Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello – gave the audience everything they have been waiting for by showcasing their greatest hits with their inimitable vibe. The highlight of the evening was when they played their much-loved masterpiece ‘Don’t You Worry Child, sending goosebumps through the entire crowd.

During this unique one-off event the phenomenal production was fully aligned with the artist’s performance. The stage was based on the number three, from the lasers at the start of the show to the burning rings in the middle of the pool. The production consisted out of three main elements; the screens, the fire and the lights all to complement the sound of Swedish House Mafia. The three giant portrait screens showed a collective of artwork from Alexander Wessley and highly stylised close-ups of the boys. With 90 strobe lights and over 60 lasers the stage engulfed with blinding energy. Topped off with elbow style confetti and huge fire moments. Swedish House Mafia and Ushuaïa Ibiza definitely left their mark once again, this show went down in history.

After their Ibiza comeback, the trio thanked the venue, by issuing the following statement:

We loved being back on the island, it has a special place in our hearts and the people showed us how special it is! The dedication and love they show us is beyond and together we made history.
