We are super excited to announce a new super cool feature which makes nightclubbing in style a lot more fun! It is a new type of offer you can get in the Clubbable app called "Join VIP Table".
If you have created a guest list group for going out you can now also get offers from people who have booked a VIP table for the same day as well as from promoters and club manages like before.
When you get an invite to join a VIP table group you can click on it to view photos of the people in that group of friends. If you find them #clubbable enough and you accept their offer, you can then chat to them and agree on time and place to meet before the club or if you just say a booking name at the door.
Not only does this remove all the waiting and trouble to get in early but you will also be drinking premium drinks at the VIP table with some new friends. This is how to go out in style!
If booking your own VIP table at a nightclub is your style then do so in the app by picking a day, select Request Table Quotes and inviting your friends. You will straight away be getting tailored table quotes to all of the high end nightclubs in town and you can see all the guest list groups who have not yet accepted any of the offers they have received. When entertaining clubbable guest list groups you are responsible for getting them in, paying the bill and being on your best behaviour since they will rate you afterwards. A good rating is key for getting your offers to join accepted in the future so you have to be on your best behaviour.
No doubt this new way of going out will radically improve VIP nightlife forever, as promised.. Have some really good times clubbing the new #clubbable way!

If you are a club goer you already know that getting into a club can sometimes be a tricky job and if you’re a nightlife newbie then the following information is essential to know and keep in mind.
Let’s start with the key word here, promoter.
What is a promoter?
A club promoter is someone who works for clubs.
Promoters are very passionate about the entertainment business so they help clubs to keep a fun, upbeat atmosphere by bringing many guests into the club and keeping them entertained. It is also their job to make sure only good guests come in.
There are two types of promoters:
The first one is the in house promoter which means that the promoter is working directly with the club making him/her a trusted person by the club and by guests.
The in house promoter can offer special table deals and has his/her own guest list.
The second type of promoter is the freelancer one. They have agreements with all the clubs they work with but are not hired directly by the club and usually do not have the same priority or authority as inhouse promoters.
This promoter can still offer a guest list but most of the time it will be someone else’s guest list.
Then there are sub promoters who are junior promoters working on behalf of a senior promoter who has the deal with the club.
For example Adda is a freelance promoter and she will be offering guests John’s guest list, John being an in house promoter he has his own guest list.
But why would you need a promoter anyway?
That’s because most venues are not taking bookings directly, instead they are paying the promoters to take care of bookings.
If you try messaging the club you will most probably not receive a reply. Many nightclubs are just impossible to get into without a promoter.
Now that you know how important a promoter’s role is you’ll soon find out that finding a good one is not as easy as it might seem.
We have noticed the need for a space where party people can find those good promoters who give good deals and can add you on their guest list, where the upcoming parties, newly opened clubs and the ones that close their doors are always up to date.
Using Clubbable to go out makes the entire process stress free and easy.
You can either book a table for the set prices that are suitable for your group or you contact us if you have special requirements and we will make it happen.
If you want to be on the guest list you can apply for it by creating a group with details such as date, preferred club, number of guys/girls, age and pictures for yourself and your friends. Our promoters will be notified about your group and offer you to be on their guest list. If you like their offer you can accept it which will then let you chat with the promoter to find out about all the extra details.
We are once again approaching the end of another year, taking all that has happened in 2020 we think everyone is happy that this eventful year is coming to an end.
Hopefully we can all remain positive that the future will bring a sense of normality back in our lives and resurrect the greatly missed nightlife.
If you are currently living within the EU you already know that celebrating the New Year is prohibited by all governments, which means that public celebrations are not allowed. You might be allowed to host a small house party with a maximum of 6 people, depending on which country you live in, but that is the best one can do regarding this situation.
Check the availability of flights to the following destinations, you might get lucky and be able to party in a more tolerant country.
As we have mentioned in our up to date post about When will nightclubs open again, Dubai has been the hot spot of partying since this summer when most countries have still been kept under partial lockdown.
If you go to this luxurious city the options of parties going on everyday are just amazing. Tens of events being host on a daily basis with famous djs, bands or live shows entertaining you while being served your favourite champagne or conceptual cocktails. If you prefer to dine before partying, host your own private boat party, tan at a beach club or cool down in a swimming pool the choices are almost countless in comparison to other cities.
The most happening city in the States! Florida is well known for it's hot days that last throughout the year which makes Miami a refreshing holiday destination.
Miami's nightlife is flourishing this season so don't hesitate to give it a go, it will definitely not disappoint you. From proper nightclub events to outdoor beach or pool clubs and even boat private parties you can pick what suits your party tastes best.
There are some tickets left at Compound in Atlanta, buy them here.
Check the availability of Dubai or Miami, pick the club you've got your eye on and use the Book table button to reserve your table.
Pre booking a table is mandatory to enter any venue.
4 Tips That Will Help You Enjoy Drinking Whisky More
Whisky is something magical. You can share the enchanting elixir with friends and family or you can make new friends at your local cocktail or dive bar over a fine pour of the stuff. Whisky has such a diverse palette that it can appeal to almost anyone: bourbon, rye, single malt, blends. And you wouldn't mind using a few quick tricks to make your whisky taste better if you like the taste of alcohol. To learn how to enjoy drinking whisky more, read on.
Straight or Neat
When you have a glass of whisky next time, fight the temptation to throw ice into it immediately. You'll find that many whiskies are greatly improved by ice, but if you don't at least try a neat whisky, you'd be doing yourself a disservice. If you find you don't like your whisky neat, that's totally okay. A glass of straight whisky can be like a slap in the face to your taste buds with its high alcohol content (approximately 40 percent to 43 percent alcohol by volume) and bold flavor profiles.
Whisky drinkers love whisky because of its array of flavors, ranging from light and fruity to rich and smoky. Whisky experts from Glenfiddich 15 strongly recommend experimenting with various types, ages, and proof of different whisky varieties to find your preference. Also within a single form of whisky, a lot of variety can occur. Don't just try one form of Irish whisky, for instance, and decide it's not for you - you may prefer another bottle that's been aged a bit longer or has a higher or lower alcohol content. Ordering your next whisky won't be a challenge after you've heard about the various types of whisky and how best to enjoy each variety, whether you want to savor your whisky straight or a blend.
Cocktails can be a perfect means of discovering their way into the world of whisky for beginners. We advise you to try it in a cocktail if you really don't like the taste of whisky by itself. A well-balanced cocktail will highlight the versatility and sophistication of the spirit to those who may have been put off by some whiskies' strength and strong flavors. Embrace whisky's special complexities by drinks, as it comes in many variations. If you want a sweet and easy drink, you should try the Old Fashioned Classic first. Or drinks such as Manhattan, Mint Julep, Hot Toddy, or Whisky Sour that have been time-tested.
On the Rocks
Although some whisky lovers turn their noses towards the thought of drinking whisky on the rocks, there's nothing wrong with adding a little ice if you like. If you prefer chilled and diluted whisky, consider adding large ice cubes or a sphere of ice instead of small cubes to your whisky glass. The larger the ice, the slower it melts. This will allow you to experience and enjoy multiple flavors of the same drink with patience. If, without the dilution and you want the freezing effect, you might try adding chilled whisky stones.
Whisky is extraordinary when drunk in moderation. On a celebratory day, you should share a good shot of whisky with your friends and family. While there might be strong opinions from some serious drinkers about the proper way to drink whisky, there are really no hard and fast laws. Hope you can make sure you're drinking and serving the best-tasting whisky with these tips. Enjoy your drink the way it pleases you.
We have decided to share with you the best option there is right now to have fun and party.
The coronavirus, which was first found in a seafood market late last year in 2019 December, has spread to at least 177 countries, making the Global Health organization declare a pandemic on 11th of March followed by month of quarantine and most public places to shut down.
Since that people have been staying at home, some countries allowed party venues or outdoor locations to hold events under certain safety rules but we know that everyone is longing for having some good fun, meeting people, drinking, listening to music and dancing respecting the uneventful pandemic.
How to party during covid?
Rent your own private yacht/boat.
We know that it sounds a bit extravagant but the prices of booking a big boat for a day have dropped significantly and it really has become the most popular way people party nowadays.
The benefits of renting your own yacht are:
- unique party experience
- similar price as booking a table in a VIP nightclub
- personalised party
- have around only the people you like
- blast music as loud as you want
- there's no bouncer not to let you in
- you make the rules
What we also help with is providing a DJ to perform live, bring the booze (any type of drinks from soft drinks and beers to the finest Magnum champagne bottles), offer some finger food and last but not least get together a mixed group of people.
If you don't know who to invite or don't know enough people that can attend your boat party we can certainly get a fun crowd together.
We assume that you are reading this because you’re either planning your trip to Paris or just about to go out in the city of love and you’re wondering, what to wear in Paris?
When you think about Paris you probably imagine a little chic café, paved streets, the Eiffel Tower, couples holding hands and people dressed up as if they are coming out of a Vogue magazine.
But when it comes to dressing up for a night out, what do you actually wear?
If you know that the door policy at evening restaurants and clubstaurants is fairly strict, then the nightclubs are 100x times more rigorous. No worries though, we’re here to help.
Clubbable helps people to get in the hottest clubs worldwide all the time, but Paris is one of our main spots so we know the dos and don’ts more than anyone around!
Dress codes can be confusing, so let us help you with our detailed, visual guides of what can pass the door staff and what never gets in.
We will split this in two, for ladies and for men, so it will be easier for you to find what you’re looking for.
As always, ladies first.
What does get in?
Please keep in mind that we did not make these rules but they are enforced by the club’s policy.
Parisians love an elegant, chic but sexy look. So anything that’s young, badass or flirtish, depends on your personal style, will get in.
Let’s show you some real examples from girls who did get in at various clubs in Paris to make this easier.
Elegant, dreamy, vaporous short dresses
Edgy look - biker, leather jacket/pants, skirts with a cool top or mini dress, mainly black
Jeans, but only if you make it fashionable, it’s recommended to wear some type of higher heels with this look
Long dresses, in Paris you can never be overdressed so don’t worry about putting on that fancy dress
One word, sparkle!
That tight short dress that looks like your second skin
Proper pants with a casual or elegant top
So as you can see, the styles are very versatile and fit different types of taste when it comes to what one is comfortable to wear.
You can go all the way out and put on the most expensive royal looking dress or have a laid back look by pairing jeans with a nice blouse or cropped top.
What’s very important are the shoes, if you’re a very tall person, above 1.75m/5’9, then you might get in wearing flat shoes, nothing sporty though, but if you’re shorter you will have to wear platforms or some type of higher shoes, even heeled boots can work depending on your outfit and the nightclub.
A few examples of what would not get in are:
Do NOT wear big sweaters, unified jeans/ pants, granny dresses, sneakers, sports wear, puffer jacket, beach wear, flip flops..
That’s it for you ladies!
Just look put together as per dos above examples and you’ll be fine.
Now what should our guys wear?
Booking an expensive table does not guarantee you entrance, if you want to spend 5k on a nightout but show up at the door dressed poorly you will not get in and we can’t help with that.
We’ll keep it short and simple for the nightlife men, shirts!
You name it, just wear a shirt!
Pair it with smart casual jeans or pants and you’re good.
Go for a blazer or leather jacket rather than a puffy jacket to keep you warm.
You can also opt for a sweatshirt, turtleneck or a simple t-shirt but they need to look smart.
Accessories such as watches, necklaces, hats are also very welcomed.
Or the best option that doesn’t ever fail you, a proper suit
Keep in mind that your shoes are also very important, pick the ones that look smart or even formal shoes
Footwear is also very important and even if you have a nice outfit on your shoes can determine if you get in or not. Only wear 1 - proper shoes or 2 - smart shoes
Here are the examples
Proper, formal shoes
Smart casual shoes (careful with these, they shouldn’t be too casual)
Now that you know how to dress to impress and be allowed entrance you must know what to avoid.
NEVER wear fanny packs, caps, sports wear, backpacks, sneakers, hoodie over head, jogging bottoms, tennis shoes, tank tops, an overly colorful outfit that doesn’t match, sandals, visible socks, flip flops, big designer logo. We repeat NO big logos on your clothes. They will for sure get you turned down at the door.
There you have it, what to wear and what not to wear when going out in Paris for girls and guys.
If you follow our advice you will be looking good in the eyes of the door staff but you also need to have a good attitude, be sober and behave while waiting to get in.
Good luck at the door and most importantly always have fun!
The famous dj Erick Morillo has passed away this Tuesday, first of September. His body has been found in a house in Miami beach.
An unidentified person has called 911 at 10 in the morning to report the death. There is currently no explanation to what has caused his death.
Officer Ernesto Rodriguez of the Miami Beach Police Department told the PA news agency: “We received a 911 call this morning at 10.42am to 5660 La Gorce Drive. Detectives are currently on scene and in the preliminary stages of the investigation.”
Erick Morillo was only 49 years old and has been in the music industry for about 30 years, he started his career in the USA where he lived most of his life.
His most famous song "I like to move it" was release in 1993 but has gotten more famous after it has been featured in the animated movie Madagascar.
Only a month ago Erick has been charged for sexual battery after his victim has done a rape kit test that tested positive with his DNA, the incident happened back in December 2019 in his Miami villa. He has denied the allegations but after the test that finds Erick guilty he has turned himself in, he was due to appear in court on September 4 but that is now cancelled due to his death.
Morillo drew attention in June 2013 when he failed to appear at a June 6 show in Long Island, and then on June 12 when he had to be escorted off stage 45 minutes into a set, due to "erratic behaviour." According to reports, he appeared to be dazed when he began his set, and his condition worsened after he began it. At one point, he vanished from view, leaving a single loop playing over and over. Erick later stated on his Twitter page, "The time has come to take a break and refocus my attention on my health and well-being."
Morillo has won the best house DJ prize at the DJ Awards three times and the best international DJ in 2002, 2006 and 2009.
Erick Morillo has been a Colombian American disc jockey, music producer, and record label owner. He used to go under a few pseudonyms such as Ministers de la Funk, The Dronez, RAW, Smooth Touch, RBM, Deep Soul, Club Ultimate, and Li'l Mo Ying Yang but after becoming very famous he chose to be public under his real name. He received a total of 15 nominations in the music industry awards from 1998 to 2010.
Morillo has hosted various other club nights across the globe, such as his mid-week Subliminal Sessions parties at Champs in New York. When they were evicted from that venue, the Sessions relaunched at Centro-Fly.
Erick has once said : "I party with the promoters I play for. A lot of DJs don't like to do that; they play the party, go back to the hotel and then get ready to go home. Not me. I don't deny it! For me a DJ is someone who brings a vibe. If you don't party, then how do you bring that vibe?"
Morillo hosted various other club nights across the globe, such as the annual Crobar party in Miami (ULTRA), and his legendary Subliminal Sessions parties at Pacha in Ibiza, which was named "Best International Club" of 2002.
Now when nightlife has finally opened up after all clubs have had to close down during the outbreak of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 it is not easy to keep up with all the changing restrictions all over the world therefore you can use this post that is updated regularly to be up to date to all the important information about the nightlife scene worldwide.
Since March 2020 everyone has been asking the same question "When will nightclubs open again?", here are some of the latest updates from 2022:
There have been a few lockdown waves all over Europe since the pandemic started with clubs, bars and restaurants opening and closing on and off.
London has all of it's nightclubs open. Some of them are Libertine, Tape, Maddox, Luxx, Reign, Cirque Le Soir, The Box and a few more. Prebooking a table is mandatory in order to be allowed to get in. Showing a negative test, a proof of vaccination or wearing a mask are no longer needed to be allowed to enter any venue or to enter the country.
Clubs in UK, especially London, England have been open in 2020's summer but operated as lounges and fun restaurants only, the atmosphere was party like but dancing was not allowed, guests had to sit at their prebooked table, wear a face mask when entering and leaving the venue and keep the 2 meters distance.
All places request a pre booked table, no guest list is available due to the virus restrictions. If none of these options are what you are looking for then the most VIP exclusive thing to do is to rent your own yacht and throw a private party! Ladies can apply to join via guest list.
In Tel Aviv some clubs have reopened, a few of them are Light House, Atlanta, Jimmy Who and Radio EPGB. To get in any of these venues you need to be vaccinated against Covid19 or carry a green passport. To get in most venues you need to buy tickets which are getting sold out a few days before each party.
Hong Kong has a few venues open, some are only for drinks and food while other ones allow some parties with live DJs.
In Seoul many clubs have permanently shut down, some bars and lounges are still open.
Singapore doesn't have nightclubs open but it has lounges, bars and restaurants fully functional.
Tokyo has many clubs and lounges open where they party just as pre pandemic.
Manila, the capital of Philippines operates as normal, a new fun club is open everyday from evening til early morning is YSO Rich and a cool bar club that closes at 2AM is Agimat.

Barcelona is known for its beautiful architecture, beaches, great weather, shopping, food, and entertainment. The vibrant and colorful city attracts millions of tourists from all over the world every year.
The city is also one of the hippest and hottest travel destinations in Europe. From major poker championships to festivals like Festa Major de Gràcia, Sónar, and Primavera Sound, Barcelona is one of the best places to go for a non-stop good time all year long. So it should be no surprise that, every New Year’s Eve, the entire city of Barcelona gets ready to party.
So, how should you celebrate New Year’s Eve in Barcelona?
Celebrating New Year’s Eve in Barcelona
Dinner is not just about eating in Barcelona. It is also a time to celebrate with loved ones. Throughout the city, there are cafes and restaurants, all with menus designed to help diners welcome in the New Year.
There is a popular tradition on New Year’s Eve: When the clock strikes midnight, it is thought to be good luck to eat 12 grapes. One grape per each ringing of the clock. This is something that many do with loved ones at home or while out, but there are also events and restaurants around the city that celebrate this tradition.
Love live jazz and fabulous Mediterranean cuisine? Then this might be the place for you. Its cozy atmosphere is ideal for gatherings with friends and family. Their live jazz is also hard to beat. Along with the grapes to eat at midnight, the restaurant has a broad menu. Enjoy everything from shrimp to sirloin steak as you wait for the start of the New Year.
This is a modern restaurant not far from Ciutadella Park. They have a special New Year’s Eve menu that features dishes with scallops and corn to monkfish and shrimp suquet. Once you are done dining, head over to the park to enjoy the fireworks show.
Barcelona’s Best Nightclubs
Barcelona has several great nightclubs that will make sure you remember the start of the New Year. The only goal of these clubs is that you have an unforgettable night, no matter if you show up before midnight or after.
They are proud to offer one of the biggest New Year’s Eve parties in the city. The club can accommodate up to 1,000 guests. There are three spaces, each with a different atmosphere, so there is something that everyone will enjoy. This is one of the most popular New Year’s Eve party spots in Barcelona. Expect crowds and bring a coat. The club’s party spaces are outdoors, too. The club is close to the Magic Fountains of Montjuic, so be prepared to be amazed at midnight when the fireworks and fountains light up together.
This club is packed with residents and tourists on New Year’s Eve. It offers great music and very delicious drinks. The location is also stunning, just imagine spending New Year’s Eve next to the beach having some cocktails with your best friends. Is there anything better?
Want to celebrate New Year’s Eve on the beach? If this is one on your wish list, the Shoko Club is the place to be. You can enjoy a drink on their heated terrace along with a decadent dinner. When you’re finished enjoying the food and the beach view, join the party in the club. The party starts a little before midnight and the club does not close until 6 a.m. Live entertainment, along with an in-house D.J. will keep the party going.
This club is close to the Shoko Club. Get tickets for both and enjoy a change of venues and atmospheres. At Opium, the party starts at 11 p.m. and goes until 7 a.m. Over 3,000 guests can fit into the main club room. There is also a terrace that overlooks the ocean. The club décor is over the top, but this is also what this hot spot is known for. If you get hungry, they have an extensive menu that offers four- and five-course meals.
Not everyone actually gets into a nightclub, wanna be sure you’re part of the ones who do? Follow our best tips on how to do so!
First of all, a really obvious one, you have to bring your ID.
To prepare you should also have a photocopy of either your passport or ID on your phone in case something happens with your originals and can’t be shown.
Dress to impress and make sure to follow the dress code for the club.
For short or average girls, if you didn’t already know high heels are a MUST, you can have a pair of flats with you to change later but don’t let the bouncer know that. Taller ladies are lucky and can get in wearing flats but they have to be elegant, no sporty shoes, no trainers, sneakers etc. Boys height doesn’t matter but you have to wear proper shoes to be 100% sure you’re getting in, not everyone thinks Yeezy’s are cool.
We provided the dress code for some clubs for both men and women but a good tip is to have a look at their latest social media pics and note what the crowd is wearing!
Best way to make sure you get in is if you get in touch with an inhouse promoter, they are usually (but not always) better since they have more influence over the door lady and can often queue jump their guests.
Soon we will show the average success ratio on promoters in the app meaning how often they actually get people into the club. Pick offers where the promoter says he or she will be there personally to let you in. If they just instruct: say my name at the door, you are usually better off pressing skip on that offer to then pick a new one.
If you are lucky enough to get invited to join a VIP table definitely go for that since with a table booking you’re definitely getting in and skipping the queue.
It is not everyone's “right” to get in and it can seem pretty harsh and shallow but the clubs are businesses and they need to make sure they have a top quality crowd to attract the VIPs buying expensive tables. The door staff always has the final say if someone gets in or not regardless of any guest list. If they don’t like a group for whatever reason they will make up some reason why they are not coming in. Keep this in mind and respect it. Don’t try to claim it is your right to get in because you are on some list.
One rule of thumb is that the more males you have in the group, the harder it will be to get past the door lady. A trick that usually works is to put the girls in the front of the group and have the guys at the back. Think about what the door lady sees. Shorter ladies should generally stand in front of taller ones since they wouldn’t otherwise be seen.
Make sure you know the group count before you reach the front of the queue so that when the door staff asks how many you are, you can answer how many girls and boys without having to turn around and do a headcount.
Remember that the interaction with the door lady/security is like an interview. The questions they ask are not necessarily because they really want to know exactly how many drinks you have had prior your arrival, it is usually just a tool to gauge how intoxicated you come across and how well you carry yourself. Try not to appear nervous or shy as if you don't think you are worthy of entry but at the same time it is important to not be arrogant as if the door lady doesn’t have the power to stop you.
Now the tabu way, bribes:
Sometimes it may be possible to bribe yourself in if it’s done elegantly. The way to do it is to fold up a note in a little square that fits in your palm without sticking out and make sure the number in the note is clearly visible. You press it against your palm with your thumb without covering the value of it. You angle your hand so that only the security guy you are trying to bribe can see it, no one else, don’t forget about security cameras. You put your hand up in a confident way as if you are about to shake his hand while making eye contact. You need to see that he sees the note in your hand before he grabs it since if he shakes your hand without seeing the note, he may get caught off guard and freak out. You may want to quickly signal with the eyes to look at your hand so he knows what is going on. Add a cheeky smile and say something like: “Hi, you know my friend from before right?”
In the US in a top club you need to give a $50 while you can get away with a $20 at some clubs. In London, UK a £20 should still do it. If you are coming with a friend he should have a note prepared just in case the security guy is hesitating, then your friend might stick out the hand as well. Remember, no one wants to get caught taking bribes so timing in this is crucial!
Create your group in the Clubbable app early to have time to get many offers and make sure to accept an offer ideally before 8pm to give the promoter the chance to sort things out. Later can work as well but earlier is better. Keep the conversation going with the promoter. Confirm in early evening that you are definitely coming.
Make sure to say to say what the promoter said you should say at the door. For example: If the promoter says: X guest list at the door, you then say: I am on X guest list. Not: My name is Emma and I am on the guest list with this Clubbable app thing.
Always have £10-20 in cash per person in case the club is getting full or the door lady is not impressed by the group, she might decide to charge you. The promoter has no control over this but it is more likely that a promoter with a good rating has a better track record of getting people in without paying anything.
If you wear glasses, take them off before getting in front of the door lady, it’s not a must or anything wrong with it but you want your face as visible as possible, same goes around hats that might cover your face.
When its cold you should open up your jacket just before your reach the front of the queue so the door lady can see your glamorous outfit, you don’t wanna look like an eskimo covered up in a polar jacket.
The best way to guarantee you definitely get in is always to book a VIP table for your group if you have a special night and want to be sure there won’t be any complications. Sure they are expensive, particularly at the most popular clubs such as The Box, but you’ll have your own table, no need to queue and you will have top level table service.

Entry price at the VIP nightclubs start at £60 and up but not just anyone can just buy a ticket at most of them. Your group needs to be at least 75% female unless you are a baller and go big with a VIP table which also eliminates all the queuing. Your group also needs to be approved for ticket purchase. This is done by creating your guest list group in the Clubbable app as you normally do. Then if approved a promoter form the club will send you an offer of guest list with the entry price attached. Once you accept the offer your promoter will provide you with payment instructions and you have your exclusive spot reserved.

It's confirmed! The Swedish House Mafia reunion is a go, with tour dates being released already for eager fans to start making plans.
Their split in 2013 took the EDM world by surprise. After forming in 2008 and releasing two amazing albums, Swedish House Mafia looked to be one of the best EDM artist collaborations ever. And that was, in fact, part of their reason for splitting: They felt they had done all they could do together, and felt they couldn't keep producing such fresh tunes. So, rather than keep milking the phenomenon, they retreated to focus on their own projects.
However understandable their reasons for splitting were, fans everywhere have been holding onto the hope that they might come back together. After all, given nearly six years to work on their own music and projects, they have no doubt developed new techniques and ideas to explore with one another. In fact, they had even said as much. During their hiatus Axwell explicitly said that he would not rule out a reunion forever. That "Maybe one day something will happen inside of us that says 'boom'."
For a while, that seemed like a fairly empty musing. After all, they weren't exactly doing badly on their own. During their hiatus they each worked on an array of hit singles, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso formed Axwell Λ Ingrosso in 2014, and Steve Angello released his debut studio album in 2016. It seemed they were really making the most of their time apart, and many fans began to lose hope that the supergroup would actually have a reason to get back together.
After they got together for the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, fans felt lucky to have had the opportunity to see them once again. But it seemed like this wasn't the last we were going to see of them. It seemed that having so much fun together and seeing fans so happy made them reconsider a reunion. Even the late great Avicii was supposedly inspired by Swedish House Mafia's reunion when he returned to DJing shortly before he passed away this April. It was a monumental thing for all electronic music artists and fans around the world.
The spark had been lit.
Back in July this year, Angello, Axwell and Ingrosso of Swedish House Mafia seemed to be hinting at something. Their Instagrams were dropping cryptic messages and an injoke seemed to be starting up. Their "Dancing Alone" billboard was glitching... or was it? It displayed the three dots of their logo. We were still unsure if it was a mistake or a hint at what was coming up.
On the 8th of this month their website and Instagram stories displayed a timer and posters were seen displaying three Nike swooshes, and STOCKHOLM three times, hinting at the Swedish House Mafia logo. With all the clues being dropped, we felt fairly certain that this was the countdown to the big reveal, but we still held our breath. After all, this wouldn't be the first time that a supposed reunion or return to the spotlight was a hoax, a joke, or a misunderstanding.
At first most fans had no clue what was going on! Swedish House Mafia has fans all around the world, and not all of us speak Swedish. So it was kind of confusing, even though it was clear something was happening. And this wasn't the first time they teased us in Swedish! In June Steve Angello did an interview with Sydsvenskan, a Swedish publication, where he literally said they would be back in 2019. But because this interview happened around the time of Ultra Miami, this little bit of information was lost. It's only now that all these little details have come together.
Hindsight really is 20/20, isn't it?
This would make it their first proper reunion in six years! Not only that, but they are promising they have been working on new music together. Axtone Records released edited footage of their performance at Ultra Miami, featuring music that is not from their first two albums together or any of their solo careers. They have also dropped hints that they might have new tracks for us.
Clearly something big has been in the works for a while now.
The reunion show will be in Stockholm on the 4th of May 2019 in the Tele2 Arena and fans are already hyped for brand new tunes. After all, if they split up because they thought their work together might get repetitive, it would be hypocritical to get back together to play the same tunes, wouldn't it?
It makes sense, knowing their commitment to always being new, fresh, and exciting, that they would be working on new tracks together.
And if you want to be one of the first people to see them live, you might not even have to travel to Stockholm. Hints have also been dropped that they might be touring. They mentioned they would be pausing their own individual projects to put together a proper tour package as Swedish House Mafia once again. And during his set at Ultra Mexico, Steve Angello said "Mexico, I'll see you next year with Swedish House Mafia."
Yeah, that is more than just a hint. That is basically a promise. So first Miami this year, next Sweden in May 2019, and after that Mexico. We can't help but wonder what other countries they will be gracing. The UK? Germany? The USA? Considering how long they kept the details of their reunion hidden, I am sure they will have more surprises up their sleeve for us.
As for the confirmed Stockholm date, the tickets will start selling on the 27th of October at 12am. We predict they will be sold out by around... 12:01 am. Click this link to get yours!
