Last year, less than a few months after Swedish House Mafia gave their final performance at Ultra Music Festival, DEPARTURES
started to make its way across social media. Nobody had any idea what it could be. Was it a new song? A video series? No…it was a new event brought to you by Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso and they were about to take Ibiza by storm. Making Ushuaïa Beach Hotel their home, once a week the two were joined by friends, such as Alesso and Otto Knows, to play some of the most sought after sets of the Summer. And now, they are back again this year, and from June 25 to September 3, every Wednesday will belong to the Swedes.
The production has been said to be completely over the top, with airplanes and stewardesses guiding the crowd to their new destination. This year, Axwell and Ingrosso are joined again by an incredible supporting cast, with Alesso getting three of his own dates along with Armand Van Helden, Dirty South, Gorgon City, Martin Garrix, New_ID, Oliver Heldens, Otto Knows, & Zedd also stopping by. If you make your way over towards the Mediterranean Sea this year, you would be foolish to miss this because besides this year’s Governors Ball and V Festival, you can’t catch DEPARTURES anywhere else!
