A Swedish House Mafia appearance at Tomorrowland has been rumored more than once this year so far. First, in February, fans thought teasers for the festival’s One World Radio was hinting at the group. Then, in April, after it was determined to be just a radio station, other unnamed “inside sources” claimed the group would be performing.
Now, in June, as if by clockwork, the rumor mill is starting up again… but this time, just maybe, there’s actually something to it. As reported by Rave Jungle, the headliner slot at main stage for Sunday on both weekends is curiously empty after the full lineup was revealed last week. Perhaps an artist as big as Swedish House Mafia could fill that slot? While not a confirmation by any means, it’s something to consider.
But it doesn’t end there.
Somehow, someone discovered that if you tap the period key on your keyboard three times on the Tomorrowland homepage, fireworks erupt on screen. Three periods = three dots? SHM’s logo? It’s an awfully curious coincidence if it didn’t pertain to the Swedish group. Other three-key combinations, including S-H-M, did not produce the same effect.
So again the rumor mill is spinning, and there’s yet to be any confirmation of their appearance. But still, if I were at Tomorrowland this year, I’d keep my schedule open on Sunday… just in case.
