Ultra CEO: 'unannounced sets will be huge and unique to the festival'

A Swedish House Mafia reunion…?

Ultra Music Festival will be celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and the festival’s CEO Russell Faibisch has reiterated that they've got something massive planned.

“Yes, something very big is in the works! Every year we pride ourselves on delivering for our fans special unannounced performances and surprises,” he said during an interview with Magnetic Magazine.

“But for the big 20th Anniversary, we knew we had to deliver something huge. Something unique that can only be seen at Ultra. It is completely under wraps. The only thing I can say is to Expect The Unexpected.”

So far the rumour mill has decided that the special performance will be a reunion of Swedish House Mafia, who famously played their final ever show at the event in 2013.

Other, and far less likely, rumours include Daft Punk, who haven’t toured in over a decade or Avicii, who retired from performing a couple of years ago due to his failing health.

If Axwell and Ingrosso are announced as headliners, don't be surprised if Steve Angello jumps out from a giant cake mid-drop for the ultimate EDM moment.
