Usually, at the end of the final act taking to the stage and closing out another epic edition of Ultra Miami, they announce the dates for the following year. But this time around, we got not just the dates for the 2023 edition but also a headliner announcement.
In an unusual announcement, prior to the epic return of Hardwell as he took to the stage to close out Ultra Miami, the screens promoted the new Swedish House Mafia album, Paradise Again, set to release on April 15th.
While the trio may have given the 2022 edition a miss in person, they sure made their presence felt as the screens displayed their logo, details about the album, a fleet of drones on the side shared a subtle message saying “See U Next Year” announcing they will be back to headline Ultra 2023 as they wind down their world tour which will kick off next month.

Kicking off their Paradise Again tour at Coachella in tandem with the release of the album on April 15th, 2022, the trio will then head on a 45-stop tour from the US to Canada and U.K. to Germany, closing out the current dates in November in Finland.
Ultra holds a special part in SHM’s heart without a doubt, the trio played their last show together in 2013 at the festival as well as their first show back together 5 years later on the same stage announcing their come-back in 2018. So the very first announcement of the 2023 lineup for Ultra Miami being Swedish House Mafia, doesn’t come as much of a surprise.
Ultra Miami will be back to its Bayfront Park home next year from March 24-26th, 2023. Tickets to the next edition are already on sale starting today, yes, one day after the 2022 edition ended. And the cherry on top is Tier 1 GA and VIP tickets are already sold out! So if you are looking to head to Miami for Ultra 2023, grab your tickets here before it’s too late.
