REPORT: Swedish House Mafia May Cancel Multiple Festival Sets Over New Deal

Swedish House Mafia is back in full force. But, if you were hoping to see them live as they hit the festival circuit this year — there may be a change in plans.

According to DJ Mag Germany, Swedish House Mafia is on the verge canceling several festival gigs.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances,” the iconic trio pulled out their Ultra Korea appearance over the weekend. While we can’t confirm or deny exact reasoning at this point, rumors a new deal with Live Nation couldn’t have surfaced at a more interesting time.

The good news… Swedish House Mafia may be performing in even more cities across the globe. The EDM supergroup has reportedly signed a contract with Live Nation for a full stadium tour. This according to sources close to SHM and DJ Mag Germany.

The bad news… Live Nation may force the group to back out any festival gigs that don’t directly or indirectly benefit the entertainment company, according to the same report. Of course, we all want a reunion tour — but at what expense?

As it stands, SHM are set to perform Tinderbox, Ultra Europe, Creamfields and more.

Stay tuned for more details on SHM’s apparent stadium tour.
