Swedish House Mafia have cancelled their show at Weekend Festival held in Finland. This is the second festival cancellation from the legendary supergroup. In June they cancelled their appearance at the closing night of Ultra Korea, citing unforeseen circumstances. They blame cancellation of Weekend Festival on production issues. There has been no official word about compensation from Weekend Festival . With only one day before the festival it will be difficult to find a suitable replacement.
The rumor mill is grinding at full speed, with speculation that this now frees up the same weekend in Belgium during Tomorrowland. Others complain that the trio has been marketing themselves with tons of merchandise, no new music and now two cancelled shows.
The next scheduled appearance is at Ushuaïa in Ibiza next weekend, followed by a three week hiatus. It was previously speculated that Swedish House Mafia would close one or both of Tomorrowland’s weekends. However the Tomorrowland announcement of the blurred closing slots was quietly filled, which also sparked controversy.
