The newly expanded Ultra Music Festival has confirmed Swedish House Mafia as the first headliner for 2013. The celebrated electronic trio — comprised of Axwell, Steve Angello, and Sebastian Ingrosso — will bookend the Miami festival’s two-weekend format with sets on the opening and closing nights of Friday, March 15th and Sunday, March 24th, respectively. The sets will mark the conclusion of the group’s final world tour.
Swedish House Mafia said in a statement:
“Ultra was the first place we really built a show for a main stage. 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.”
GA and VIP tickets to both weekends are now available via the festival’s website.
