What's next on Swedish House Mafia's to-do list? Total global takeover?
Almost. This evening, word has arrived that Mafia members Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Angello, and Axwell will challenge Ultra Music Festival's exclusive claim to the last weekend of March by throwing one of their Masquerade Motel parties on Saturday, March 26, 2011.
Sounds insane. But after Masquerade Motel's ridiculously successful 16-week summer run at Pacha Ibiza (not to mention its Halloween layovers in Miami and Vegas), there's a reason these Swedes got balls bigger than ostrich eggs.

UPDATE: Tickets are now on sale for March 26's Masquerade Motel. Still no word on the venue, though.
UPDATE 2: Lineup for the March 26 Masquerade Motel has been revealed.

Officially dubbed The One Night Stand at the Masquerade Motel, this ten-hour party is being billed via SHM's Facebook as "the only Swedish House Mafia gig of the Miami new weekend." It will be held in a custom-built arena at a currently undisclosed location. And aside from Ingrosso, Angello, and Axwell, the
lineup is a secret that will be revealed throughout December and January.
Actually, the lineup for the March 26 Masquerade Motel has been revealed!
