All we can say is WTF?!? Swedish House Mafia is over? done? gone? According to the groups website final tour dates will be announced soon. No official word that the group will cease or stop producing track just that this will be the last tour. Could this be a big publicity stunt? Maybe, on the verge of becoming the #1 dj group in the world, not just the EDM world, they toss it in the garbage? As single DJs Axwell, Steve Angello, and Sebastian Ingrosso can command a crowd but never as big as Swedish House Mafia.
There have been rumors that the group is throwing the towel in because of growing rants about the “fakness” of their DJ sets, who knows? But the next question is who will fill their shoes? I’m sure will start to see countless trios start to form in hope of becoming the next Swedish House Mafia.
I think we felt like it had become a very big machine. I think the pressure … It just wasn’t having fun anymore. It was this humongous monster. We felt like tired. Swedish House Mafia was never something planned, it was just like, we’re three guys, let’s do this and have fun and throw parties and have a blast. So we just thought, “You know what? Let’s end this.” – Steve Angello [huffingtonpost]
Straight from the trio’s website itself here is what the EDM kings had to say;
The Qontinent Weekend Festival 2012 by Bass Events & Q-dance.
Date : 10-11-12 August 2012
Location : Recreation Area Puyenbroeck, Wachtebeke (Belgium)
Following heavy rain, the Festival had to be cancelled over the weekend because parts of the arena and campsite had flooded. Fans were hoping to see acts such as Deadmau5, Calvin Harris and Sub Focus, who were all due to appear on the Sunday night. [BBC]
In response to a number of enquiries we have received, firstly a refund announcement with full details of what people need to do will follow within the next 24 hours, however, in the meantime and to answer some of your questions here are the circumstances that led towards the cancellation of Sunday’s event, we hope that you can see that this decision required extensive assessment of the overall event site whilst at the same time implementing an evacuation plan. Once again the safety and welfare of all those on the campsites was paramount and we are sorry that it took some time before information was relased to those, but this was necessary so a controlled exit from the festival could be put in place. If these systems had not been implemented it was highly probable that a very large number of people would attempt to exit the site before a revised transport plan could be put in place.
