Avicii tribute concert & benefit planned

So many amazing and creative people have been lost to the pain and isolation of mental health. And there’s still so much to learn.  So it’s with that in mind that some of the late DJ Avicii’s friends are throwing a benefit to honor his life as well as fund suicide prevention programs.

The event is planned for December 5th in Sweden, Avicii’s home country.

Proceeds will support the work of the new Tim Bergling Foundation, named for the musician who killed himself in April 2018.  Tim Bergling is Avicii’s real name.

His songs “Wake Me Up!,” ?Addicted to You” and the posthumous “SOS” topped the dance music charts.

The concert will feature many of the singers, including Adam Lambert and Rita Ora, who were on Avicii’s recordings and will be the first time many of them have been performed live.

David Guetta and Kygo are among the electronic dance music stars that will perform opening sets.
