Swedish House Mafia, along with Martin Garrix, take the leading spots for dance music in this year’s Lollapalooza Berlin. Earlier today, the festival let fans know who will be taking over the main stage and they did disappoint. Along with SHM, names like Gryffin, Gramatik, and Don Diablo were also announced.
As the year slowly continues on, SHM has been slowly making a comeback. Confirming big shows like Ultra Europe and Ultra Korea, it comes as little surprise that they continue to appear as headliners for more festivals overseas. However, fear not American fans, the group has been hinting at a Los Angeles show.
If you needed more incentive to attend Lollapalooza Berlin you have no excuse now to buy a ticket. Tickets are still on sale, but will likely sell out soon. As they constantly hint at new shows every day, it’s only a matter of time until the group announces an international tour.
Nevertheless, it’s exciting to see that Swedish House Mafia is back after a long break. Check the image below for more information about what day they will be performing.

Rain Man’s latest is a stripped-down vehicle for Nashville singer-songwriter BLI.
If Rain Man has seemed fairly absent in 2018, well, it’s because he has been. This year’s festival season came and went without the former Krewella bandmate (whose real name is Kris Trindl) releasing any new music. Now he’s arrived back on the scene with “Mirage” ft. BLI.
Fans of the producer may be surprised at his recent musings, however. BLI’s aggressive verses serve as the centerpiece of “Mirage” whereas the elements contributed by Trindl more or less round out the whole of the arrangement.
In 2014 Trindl’s departure from Krewella ignited controversy in the EDM community. Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf (who still perform and release music under the stage name) allegedly removed Trindl from the group the previous year on the grounds that his alcohol abuse had become a serious problem. He returned fire with a lawsuit alleging that the sisters had reneged on a verbal contract made at the group’s formation.
In 2016 Trindl’s career began looking up on account of Steve Aoki‘s Dim Mak imprint signing him as a solo artist. His first release on the label was “Bring Back The Summer” ft Oly, but his output has been sparse in the years since.
Listen to “Mirage” ft. BLI and let us know what you think of Rain Man’s new track.

Michael Riga allegedly tried to leverage a false connection to Above & Beyond to bring revenue to Midnight Coast.
Jono Grant, Paavo Siljamäki and Tony McGuinness of Above & Beyond have found themselves embroiled in an unusual dispute. Midnight Coast co-founder Michael Riga has allegedly sent out a memo to producers with the Anjunabeats label bosses listed as senders – but according to them, they have never been in contact with Riga.
A source closely familiar with the matter has told EDM.com that Midnight Coast previously paid mid-level trance producers advances of various sums to remix the label’s releases. After the business model proved unsound, they sent out a memo apparently written by Grant, Siljamäki and McGuinness on Involved Group letterhead. In addition to presenting the trio as investors in Midnight Coast, it outlined a change in policy which would require artists with under 500 Beatport followers to pay back their advances to the label like they would a loan.
Grant, Siljamäki and McGuinness have denied any involvement with Riga. A tweet sent out yesterday from the Anjunabeats account included the following joint statement (that has since been deleted at the request of George Rai, who says he is not associated with Midnight Coast):
It has come to our attention that certain DJs and producers are receiving letters purporting to be from the members of Above & Beyond to Midnight Coast claiming that Anjunabeats are investors in Midnight Coast, and their owners Michael Riga and George Rai.
We would like to make it known as a matter of record, that neither Above & Beyond nor Anjunabeats have any association with Midnight Coast or any of their subsidiaries, and have never met or contacted Mr. Riga or Mr. Rai except to bring this situation to their attention.
Involved Productions administers Anjunabeats, Anjunadeep and other brands overseen by Grant, Siljamäki and McGuinness. Riga’s alleged misrepresentation appears to have been a last-ditch effort to salvage Midnight Coast by replacing the remix advances with the value of Above & Beyond’s association.
A post made to Riga’s LinkedIn account last month suggests that he had fallen on hard times and was looking for work in the IT field. “It’s been very hard to find a position with the current shutdown,” he wrote. “Due to the lack of jobs being posted I’m going to be losing my house unless someone can offer me something within the next few months.”
EDM.com has reached out to Midnight Coast for comment but they have yet to respond at the time of writing.
UPDATE: A previous version of this article said George Rai had also contributed to the alleged misrepresentation. He has reached out to EDM.com to clarify that, just like the Above & Beyond members, he is not associated with Midnight Coast.
