Masquerade Motel Sells Out (Sorta), Ticket Scalpers Charging $300 on Craigslist

It only took two hours for the inevitable to happen ... Swedish House Mafia's Masquerade Motel tickets sold out and opened a scalper floodgate.

But don't blow your paycheck just yet. Inside sources tell us that Swedish House will release another batch of tickets in the near future. So keep it locked to Crossfade for updates.

As expected, this year's Masquerade Motel has already become one of Miami's most coveted WMC-week bashes.

Though the full lineup has yet to be revealed, Swedish House Mafia's Axwell tweeted that Calvin Harris would provide the main support. At least two acts -- A-Trak and Dirty South -- that appeared at last year's Masquerade Motel have already committed to Ultra.

Meanwhile, Armand Van Helden was part of last year's Masquerade Motel. But his side-project with A-Trak, Duck Sauce, is on tap for Saturday at Ultra. Will his contract hold him back from playing Grand Central Park on Friday? Stay tuned to find out.

Swedish House Mafia's Masquerade Motel. Friday, March 23. Grand Central Park, 721 NW First Ave, Miami. Tickets cost $125 plus fees via SOLD OUT. Visit
