Dance music stars Swedish House Mafia have officially disbanded after playing their final show at Florida's Ultra Music Festival on Sunday.

The DJ trio, made up of producers Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso, played their last ever set at the annual Miami event, three years after first performing there.

The crowd went wild as the group appeared on the main stage for the 90-minute show, which featured tracks Greyhound, Don't You Worry Child, Miami 2 Ibiza and a remix of Coldplay's Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall.

An emotional Axwell stepped up to the microphone to thank fans for their support, joking the gig was like their "last day in school" and calling it a "special night", reports Billboard.com.

Swedish House Mafia formed in 2008 and became one of the biggest acts in the genre as well as the first dance act to sell out New York City's Madison Square Garden.

They announced plans to split last June, and have since been travelling the globe on their sell-out trek, One Last Tour.
