Swedish House Mafia's Ultra Music Festival reunion rumours continue, with Hardwell weighing in on the hype during an interview with Slam.nl. The EDM superstar believes the three-piece— Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso— will be special guests at event, which takes place in Miami this weekend.
"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, cancelled 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," Hardwell said.
This is just the latest in a long list of mounting evidence to suggest a reunion is on the cards. Early this month, the trio's former lighting tech dropped a huge hint that a return was being plotted. Meanwhile, a conspiracy theory on Reddit centred on memorial patches sent out to ticketholders for Ultra 2018— the event's 20th anniversary— which apparently contained a secret clue about this year's surprise guests, including Swedish House Mafia. However, Steve Angello has denied any such plan exists.
