The crowning moment of the week was Masquerade Motel, which was bigger and better than ever. Spread over two days, this year’s event was the first time the group has done consecutive headlining performances. 20,000 fans packed out the new downtown location and watched Swedish House Mafia’s mindblowing two hour production. Highlights included the fusing together of Swedish House Mafia’s “One” with an acappella of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know;” Swedish House Mafia’s “Save The World” with Axwell’s “Heart Is King” and Ferry Corsten‘s “Punk;” and a special version of Axwell, Ingrosso, Angello & Laidback Luke‘s “Leave The World Behind” with Porter Robinson‘s “Unison.”
In addition to a headline set from Swedish House Mafia, Masquerade Motel also featured smashing support from Calvin Harris, Alesso, Thomas Gold, Otto Knows, AN21, Third Party and NO_ID. Attendees couldn’t get enough Masquerade Motel, and if 2012 was this amazing, we can only assume next year’s event will blow the lid off Miami. While you wait the year out, check out Swedish House Mafia’s newest music video for “Greyhound”, the track they launched into for Masquerade Motel. Enjoy!
