Today, Swedish House Mafia announced the date and location of their final tour dates as a group: Ultra Music Festival 2013 in Miami, FL.

The news comes on the heels of a chilly relationship with Ultra Music Festival in 2012, when Swedish House Mafia chose to host their own event, Masquerade Motel, during Ultra Music Festival a mere few blocks away. During Miami Music Week and Winter Music Conference, partygoers had been spread among the many pool parties, solo performances, and club shows all over the city.
The Masquerade Hotel event had supported this trend and deemphasized Ultra Music Festival's role as the crown jewel of the period. Now, with the announcement that Ultra has moved to two weekends coupled with their acquisition of Swedish House Mafia to open and close their festivals, it appears Ultra Music Festival once again becomes the undeniable anchor of Miami's electronic dance music events.
