Despite their storied career, it’s been a year of firsts for Swedish House Mafia, whose stunning debut album continues to provide the soundtrack for perhaps the greatest comeback in electronic music history.
"There’s always new ground to break," said Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello at the time of the album's release.
The legendary electronic music trio have now announced their first-ever North American DJ residency at Wynn Las Vegas. Sources confirmed to EDM.com that Swedish House Mafia signed a two-year deal to perform at the famed resort's flagship nightlife venues, Encore Beach Club and XS Nightclub.
"We love going from arenas to clubs, from huge epic raves to intimate club shows and then back into the arena," Angello said in a statement. "That balance is really important to us and our fans. We’re happy to bring this balance to Vegas with Wynn."
