Axwell and Ingrosso Take Us On the Road From Ultra to Coachella
Ever since the breakup of the Swedish House Mafia, Axwell Λ Ingrosso have had their foot on the gas pedal. On the production side, they're getting set to release an album. Containing their recent singles, "Something New," "On My Way" and "Can't Hold Us," this much-anticipated release is going to exemplify their new sound, showing that they have left their Swedish House Mafia days far behind them.
One thing that hasn't changed, however, is their presence at the world's biggest festivals. At the 2013 Ultra Music Festival, the Swedish House Mafia closed out the festival's main stage, marking the trios final performance together. At this year's Ultra (2015), Axwell and Ingrosso found themselves on the main stage once again, closing out the second day (Saturday, April 28) of the event. This marked the duo's most significant festival appearance since they made their live debut apart from the three-piece Swedish House Mafia at New York’s Governor’s Ball in 2014. The video above takes its viewers inside the preparation of their Miami takeover, which included performances at Story, the Surfcomber Hotel, the Wall and ending with their headlining appearance at Ultra.
Following their manic trip to Miami for Music Week, Axwell and Ingrosso hit New York City to perform an "intimate" set at Terminal 5. The surprise show came just two nights after their Ultra performance, and sold out the 3,000 person venue. This pit stop in NYC came right before they traveled to California to perform for 60,000 people at both weekends of Coachella. Get an inside look at these monumental shows with the video above, and watch for them to continue to build upon what has already been a wildly successful year in 2015.
