Swedish House Mafia unveil mysterious date during Creamfields finale

Exactly one year on from Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso‘s performance on the Creamfields Arc Stage – when the duo flashed up three white circles at the end of their show and uttered the cryptic clue of “To Be Continued…” into the microphone, the SHM rumour mill continues to turn thanks to a new twist during Sunday night’s performance.

Headlining the 2019 festival alongside Steve Angello as reformed EDM giants Swedish House Mafia, the trio opened their performance with forthcoming Pharrell collab ‘It Gets Better’, but missed out ‘Underneath It All’, the new track which they first debuted in Stockholm back in May. With the Creamfields Arc Stage closed all day on Sunday to allow SHM to set up their own production, fans were promised an extended set from the trio, but were left bewildered when (after appearing on stage 5 minutes late), the trio also ended their set 15 minutes early, leaving the crowd stood waiting for some kind of encore which never materialised.

However, it was during this mysterious ending that the trio dropped another big hint about their future, flashing the numbers ‘06.09.19’ up on the screen. The date, which translates as Friday 6th September, could be when the Swedes finally announce their long-rumoured stadium tour of the USA, or it could be the release date of their first new music since 2012’s ‘Don’t You Worry Child’, with many fans believing ‘It Gets Better’ (as seen in the video below) could be the track that the trio have selected as their official SHM comeback single.
