Legendary trio Swedish House Mafia will be returning to Coachella in 2022 for the first time since they headlined the festival a decade ago.
Dance music and the festival scene as a whole were in a very different place a decade ago. EDM was propelling to higher heights and dominating speakers around the world, while festivals were picking up serious momentum as fans craved the chance to catch their new favorite artists live. At the forefront of this explosion in popularity was a trio of Swedish artists, Steve Angello, Axwell, and Sebastian Ingrosso, otherwise known as Swedish House Mafia – and in 2012 they made their headline debut at Coachella.
Coachella 2012 featured a laundry list of artists who either were or would soon become powerhouses in the dance music scene, but Swedish House Mafia topping the lineup that year further propelled the legitimacy of the dance music scene. Now, a decade later, they are returning to the Empire Polo Grounds with a live show that will help usher in a new era of their sound when Coachella returns from its hiatus on April 15-17 and April 22-24 next year.
The news of Swedish House Mafia’s return to Coachella rides on the heels of a tour that’s been revealed this week with posters and video ads popping up in cities like London, Amsterdam, Las Vegas, San Diego, Miami, and Madrid, among others. Additionally, the trio is gearing up for the release of the latest single that sees them team up with The Weeknd which is due out this week as well. This track will follow up “It Get’s Better” and “Lifetime” with Ty Dolla $ign and 070 Shake that dropped earlier this year and further build the story they plan to tell on their forthcoming album
Stay tuned for more news from Swedish House Mafia, including the official dates for their forthcoming tour, the release of Paradise Again, and more.
