The Swedish House Mafia hype and speculation period before their ‘World Tour’ announcement is in full swing. Filled with cryptic countdowns & posters in random cities. The boys have made sure to keep us on our toes when announcing a new location. Most recently speculation was bound on their appearance at Finland’s Weekend Festival in Helsinki as a poster was spotted there emblazoned with their three iconic dots and the date 19.07.19. But now the rumor is no more as they have been formally announced & presale for the festival has begun.
And there is even more speculation (It doesn’t seem to end does it?) regarding the supergroup appearance at the 2019 editions of Ultra & Tomorrowland. In a (Presumably unintentional) ‘leak’ the Weekend Festival sent the following email to all their email subscribers.
“Swedish House Mafia’s return onto the stages, after five years, has been a huge thing in the whole world of music. For the next summer, over 100 000 tickets were sold for their three comeback shows in Stockholm. In addition to that, in the summer this top trio is only going to play at the biggest festivals around the world, such as Ultra, Tomorrowland, and Creamfields. It’s also a really huge moment to get them to Finland, to Weekend Festival.”
Just a marketing stunt to generate more hype? Or is this something more, while it is highly unlikely the promoters of the Weekend Festival in Finland would have information on the lineups of Ultra & Tomorrowland. But the boys have been confirmed for one of the three festivals mentioned i.e; Creamfields. How much weight does this rumor hold? Well, only time will tell.
