Swedish House Mafia at Tomorrowland 2019 was always a pipe dream… or was it?
In a previous article, we wrote, “A moderator the Tomorrowland subreddit made a statement apparently confirming that Swedish House Mafia had been booked to close the festival both weekends and, allegedly, cancelled. There was no reason given for their reported actions.”
None the members the Swedish trio ever explicitly commented on Tomorrowland (despite a fake set screenshots trying to prove otherwise), but Gareth Emery says it clearly enough: “SHM canceled.”
In a recap post his own Tomorrowland set, Emery seemed to almost nonchalantly slip that sentence into his caption. Even more, he implies that he was worried about his set time playing against Swedish House Mafia, as if he’d already seen the set times before the trio cancelled.
On paper this didn’t look like being a vintage show… playing after Armin (always a hard act to follow) and also playing up against SHM. Fuck! Those are some challenging slotonomics.
