On July 14th the trio of producers; Axwell, Streve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso, also known as Swedish House Mafia, performed their final live performance at the Milton Keynes Bowl.
The 9 hour summer dance event took place with the doors opening at half one, with No_ID, Example, Madeon, Alesso, Calvin Harris, and Pete Tong supporting until Swedish House Mafia took to the stage at five to nine.
No_ID took to the stage at half one playing a DJ set while fan’s entered the bowl. It got everyone pumped up and excited while they piled in and bought a beer or two. Example then took to the stage at 3pm, getting everyone up and jumping around, singing and the sun briefly came out to make everyone feel cheery and excited singing along to hits such as “Watch The Sun Come Up”, “Won’t Go Quietly” and “Stay Awake”. At quarter past four Madeon then took to the stage followed by Alesso at quarter past five. Both DJ’s created a chilled out vibe for fans to sit back on the (although slightly muddy) grass and soak up the festival feeling. Then at quarter past six Calvin Harris took to the stage, whose set seemed to be lacking compared to everyone else who was playing. Never the less, his admired songs were enjoyed by thousands including the hits “Feel So Close”, “I’m Not Alone” and “We Found Love”. Then at 25 past seven Pete Tong took to the stage getting the crowd excited and worked up before the main act.
Despite the cold, rain and mud, thousands of Swedish House Mafia fans turned up with their wellies to support the dance super group’s final performance. And Swedish House Mafia’s final show certainly didn’t disappoint. When the group took to the stage at five to nine, fans were presented with an amazing DJ set, complete with lights and fireworks. Fans sang and danced along as they played their much loved songs such as ‘Greyhound’, ‘Antidote’, ‘Save the World’ and ‘Miami to Ibiza’, along with several other popular dance remixes.
Swedish House Mafia planned on going out with a bang, and they certainly delivered.
