In great news for his fans, Sebastian Ingrosso, one third of former EDM trio Swedish House Mafia, is set to play at Provocateur on February 4.

When you consider that Ingrosso’s first gig was in a pizza shop in small-town Sweden, the DJ hasn’t done too badly: he’s now headlined multiple festivals across the world throughout his career with Swedish House Mafia.

For those of you who may not be acquainted with Ingrosso and Swedish House Mafia, the group placed at number 10 on the 2011 DJ Magazines Top 100 DJ Poll, with Ingrosso as a solo DJ ranked at number 26, moving up to rank 18 in 2013.

The trio’s most successful single to date Don’t You Worry Child has over 334 million views on YouTube, with their other releases having gained similarly impressive numbers of hits.

However, the Swedish House Mafia Trio trio split up after ‘One Last Tour’, which came to an end at the Ultra Miami Festival in March 2013.

Now working primarily as a solo DJ, Ingrosso has kept up the momentum, and continues to live a high-flying lifestyle touring around and playing shows.

Since the split, Ingrosso and former groupmate Axwell have still continued to collaborate under the name Axwell Λ Ingrosso, having released a string of singles and keeping up a steady stream of sets.

This time around, however, Ingrosso will be visiting without Axwell, and is set to play solo at Provocateur this coming February 4.

So if you’re EDM crazy, nostalgic about Swedish House Mafia, or just want to come and see one of the world’s greatest DJs tear it up for a night, this’ll be a set you won’t want to miss.
