Six years after they announced plans to split – which then came to fruition in 2013 – Swedish House Mafia confirmed yesterday that they will reunite for a show in Stockholm next May.

Axel ‘Axwell’ Hedfors, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso performed together for the first time since 2013 at this year’s Ultra Music Festival, where they appeared for an unbilled set. Next year’s full scale reunion show will also see them unveil new music, they said at yesterday’s press conference.

Originally founded back in 2008, the trio became one of the biggest names in dance music, bowing out while still on a commercial high. Hedfors and Ingrosso continued to work together as Axwell Ingrosso, and first revealed plans to reunite with Angello at a show in New York earlier this year.

The big reunion concert is set to take place at the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm on 4 May. Tickets go on sale on Saturday at midnight.

You can watch the full press conference here – although I should probably warn you that once you’ve found your way through the lengthy countdown at the beginning, it’s all in Swedish. I did hear someone say “fuck it” at one point though.
