Jesus loves electronic dance music. The bearded one with the ripped abs totally answered our prayer to have just one more day with Swedish House Mafia at the Masquerade Motel. A second day -- Saturday, March 24 -- has been announced.
At 10 a.m. today, tickets for Day Two of SHM's alternative to Ultra Music Festival go on sale. Best of all, we finally know who'll be playing this year's Masquerade Motel, a gnarly group of uhntz-uhntz masters and bleep-bleep, bloop-bloop commanders.
Joining Sebastian Ingrosso, Axwell and Steve Angello's Swedish House Mafia on both days of the Masquerade Motel will be Calvin Harris and Alesso, a fellow Swede who MTV named one of the EDM Rookies to Watch in 2012.
Also appearing both nights: NO_ID, the Dutch house music duo who'll pop their Miami Music Week cherry with a two-night residency at Masquerade.
Swedish House Mafia's Masquerade Motel. Friday, March 23 (SOLD OUT) and Saturday, March 24. Grand Central Park (721 NW First Ave, Miami). Tickets cost $125 plus fees via wantickets.com and go on sale at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, February 21. Visit swedishhousemafia.com/masquerademotel.
