Almost two years after Swedish House Mafia split up, two of the DJs from Sweden's biggest electronic super group have reunited and are set to perform in their home country next summer.


After releasing a single last week under the name Axwell Λ INGROSSO, house music legends Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso have committed to headline the Summer Burst music events in Stockholm and Gothenburg.
"It's great to be a part of Summerburst back in 2015! There's nothing like the Swedish summer, and the Swedish audience during the Swedish summer is magic," said the duo in a press release.
Anders Boström, festival director for Summerburst said his team was "excited and proud" that the stars had chosen to play at the events in Sweden's biggest cities as the festival marks its fifth anniversary.
The duo's single Something New was released last week amid a twitter frenzy from Swedish House Mafia fans and with support from fellow international DJs including Nicky Romero and Zane Lowe.
Swedish House Mafia formed in 2008 and went on to become one of the country's biggest music exports since Abba. They released two studio albums and toured the world's biggest clubs.
In 2012, the group announced via their website that they would split up after embarking on a final tour, which ended in Miami in March the following year.
The third member of Swedish House Mafia - Steve Angello - will not be joining his former colleagues on the podium next summer and has yet to announce when he will be performing in 2015. His next dates are in Jakarta and Singapore later this month.
