Swedish House Mafia has the best fans in the world and they’ve spoken loudly by selling out all 10,000 tickets to the Friday, March 23rd Masquerade Motel Miami event. What’s amazing is that news of the Masquerade Motel Miami on-sale date came just 48 hours earlier when Swedish House Mafia announced it via Facebook and Twitter. A lesson in the power of social media and Swedish House Mafia’s connection with their fans, the news of the event spread rapidly throughout the world and once again made Masquerade Motel Miami the most coveted ticket of Miami Music Week.
Due to the incredible demand for Masquerade Motel Miami, Swedish House Mafia is happy to announce that a second date has been added on Saturday, March 24. Tickets to the second date went on sale today – Tuesday, February 21 at 10AM EST/7AM PST via Want Tickets. Both shows are 21 and over and run from 3PM-11PM.
In addition to a headline set from Swedish House Mafia, support for both days of Masquerade Motel Miami will come from an all-star line-up of talent including Calvin Harris, Alesso, Thomas Gold (Friday only), Otto Knows (Friday only), AN21(Saturday only), Third Party (Saturday only) and NO_ID.
In early 2011 Swedish House Mafia shocked the industry when they decided to do things their way and built a custom venue, dubbed Masquerade Motel Miami, on South Beach during Miami Music Week. The fans answered the call and sold out early bird tickets in a mere 22 minutes. What took place on March 26, 2011 was the stuff of legend as Swedish House Mafia and all-star support from Dirty South, Pete Tong, Calvin Harris, Armand van Helden and AN21 and Max Vangeli redefined what live dance music is all about.

“When Pharrell took the stage in the party’s last moments, raising his arms and facing the video-bedecked DJ booth, where the three dons raised theirs toward him, it was like a baton being passed – hip-hop to dance…” – Billboard
“…Fans were treated to a seaside experience that turned out to be such a hit that it was briefly a top trending Twitter topic worldwide over the weekend” – Blackbook
