Swedish House Mafia's Miami 2012 plans

As expected, there’s a good reason the Swedish House Mafia weren’t on the ‘Phase One’ line-up for Miami’s Ultra Music Festival. In 2011, the trio went up against Ultra with its own mini-festival on Miami’s South Beach, and they’re doing it again in 2012. “Masquerade Motel Miami March 2011 was one of the highlights of our lives, we simply had to do it again,” trumpets the SHM Facebook page. “March 23rd Friday 2012 is the date, Miami the location.” So pretty much straight after lighting up Future Music Festival around Australia, the guys will be on a plane bound for sunny Miami.

While 150,000 bodies passed through Ultra Music Festival over its three days last year, the Swedes sold out a vast 15,000-capacity tent on their name alone (plus a support cast of A-Trak, Calvin Harris, Pete Tong, Dirty South and Armand Van Helden).

It wasn’t all smooth sailing at the Masquerade Motel though. The Miami Beach fire marshal closed the gates of the venue at around 6pm, leaving late ticket-holders stranded outside. Apparently the issue was with the ticket outlet overselling the capacity, but that didn’t stop an avalanche of angry tirades against the Swedish House Mafia. We daresay those issues will be ironed out by the time Friday 23 March 2012 rolls around.

I love the way they are all working together in this shot, one on the bass eq's, one working the fader. The other with each hand gripping the others shafts, pulling away as his life depended on it.
