Swedish House Mafia Set to Close Farewell Tour at 2013 Ultra Music Festival
If we have to say goodbye to Swedish House Mafia, at least the band is ending its time together on a fittingly poetic note. The electronic trio made its North American debut at the Ultra Music Festival in 2010, and next March, they’ll conclude their farewell tour with headlining sets at the festival’s 2013 edition.
“Ultra was the first place we really built a show for a main stage,” explained the band in a press release announcing the booking. “We filmed the whole thing and we played ‘One’ for the first time on that stage. It was a moment we would never forget and became the closing scene in our film, ‘Take One.’ The energy of the crowd was unbelievable and the fact that it’s part of Miami Music Week where so much new music is born made it even more special. It just felt right that we finished where so much was started and we’re honored to open and close the festival.”
As alluded to in the band’s statement, Swedish House Mafia will bookend the Miami festival with two performances — one on opening night (March 15) and another to close it out on March 24. If you’re interested in purchasing tickets, we’d recommend visiting the Ultra website sooner than later; the cheaper advance passes are already sold out, leaving fans to choose between general admission and VIP packages that run between $299 and $1449.90. Here’s hoping your wallet is up to the strain!
