Like a snippet of a hit song in one of their fast-moving disc jockey sets, the dance-music megastars of Swedish House Mafia are leaving us almost as soon as they arrived. The Stockholm trio — which started affecting Top 40 charts in 2010 with the Pharrell Williams collaboration "One" — will launch its so-called One Last Tour, a global trek scheduled to play the 35,000-capacity Los Angeles State Historic Park next March. You can understand the group's early retirement as a going-out-on-top maneuver.

Sebastian Ingrosso is terrified of cheetahs.  Fans at SXSW learned this during a scene in the new Swedish House Mafia documentary "Leave the World Behind" in which the band, in the midst of its farewell tour, visits a wildlife sanctuary. The other members - Axwell and Steve Angello - sidle up next to a pile of bored-looking big cats, while the usually floppy and fun-loving Ingrosso suddenly turns stiff and panicked. As one cheetah gently licks his hand, he suddenly bolts for the door of the enclosure, and stays behind a locked gate while the rest of the band laughs at him. The scene in the film (which premiered Wednesday at SXSW)

Adding to news that its extremely triumphant single "Don't You Worry Child" had moved up a spot to No. 6  on the Hot 100 , Swedish House Mafia on Wednesday announced details of its upcoming two-night stand at Los Angeles State Historic Park. The Stockholm-based DJ trio --  Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso -- will headline the so-called Masquerade Motel on March 8 and 9, part of a world tour the group says will be its final go-around before retiring (and then reuniting, no doubt, five years from now at Coachella)

A certain fatigue had set in for the multiplatinum-selling electronic dance music act Swedish House Mafia in 2012. By the three members' own estimate, they had partied hard five days a week for six years straight, consuming mass quantities of booze and chemical stimulation, living the hedonistic life associated with superstar DJs while traveling the globe to deliver their four-on-the-floor dance delirium to packed arenas. But just as EDM was becoming an increasingly mainstream concern - with the group selling out Madison Square Garden in nine-minutes flat and its smash single "Don't You Worry Child" moving millions of copies to top pop charts around the world - Swedish House Mafia made a controversial decision: to call it quits at the peak of the group's success.

The snow machines were a welcome touch at Swedish House Mafia's Friday farewell set in Chinatown. On a night with miserable outdoor concert weather -- chilly temperatures, with just enough rain to turn the L.A. State Historic Park into a frigid mud slurry -- when the trio of DJs kicked on the midfield snowblowers, you could almost pretend that you were actually raving astride a Swedish fjord. Almost. “Serious respect to the girls who came out dressed in bikinis on this … warm spring night,” joked one of the Mafia members from atop a monolithic tiered stage at the park's north end. “That's the kind of friends we have.” If EDM artists and festivals have enjoyed a perpetual spring and summer in America over the last few years, the retirement of Swedish House Mafia might herald a changing season.

Last month, the EDM-focused speakers' series IMS Engage announced its first round of lecturers , including Moby, David Lynch, Junkie XL and Hans Zimmer. Now they've expanded the roster with rap and disco legends. Sean "Diddy" Combs, the MC and entertainment mogul, will join his new collaborator Guy Gerber for a discussion about their new collaborative project, 11 11. Their new music together is surprisingly experimental house, and much closer to Gerber's catalog then the mainstream hip-hop work Diddy is most known for (though Diddy has long been a presence on the Miami electronica club scene, and his "white parties" attract top DJ talent)

Beach life returns to Las Vegas in a big way. Just like real beach days, it's time to slather on the lotion, rent a cabana and join the DJ-driven parties. The pool-as-beach is a cool place to be when the temperature climbs. Some Vegas pools opened in March, but the partying doesn't start in earnest until later this month. Hard Rock Hotel Casino revamps its pool concept with a series of day and night Beachlife events that start this month and continue until October. -- Rehab Sundays return in a newly renamed Paradise Beach (formerly Rehab Pool)
